Canterbury - Dark Days review

Crowd-funded pop rock accessibility

Canterbury Dark Days review
YouTube :

The clue is in the title for geographically confusing Surrey foursome Canterbury's third long-player.

The crowdfunded Dark Days doesn't abandon the band's pop-rock accessibility, but there's definitely a less happy-go- lucky feel to proceedings this time around. The sing-along choruses and catchy chord-based riffage are present and correct, but the more sombre mood gives guitarists Mike Sparks and James Pipe the chance to pile on the evocative, delay-heavy Fender-y lead lines, particularly on the last third of the album, where Dark Days really comes into its own.
