Endway makes rock 'n' roll the way classic rock bands like
Foreigner and Styx did it, with pure adrenaline and
a desire to motivate their audiences to get up and get involved in
their music. Endway's full length debut album produced by the band,
tills modern-powered melodic rock jet streams with energetic rhythms
and vocals that walk the fine line between iron-fisted tenacity and
romantically tender arias possessing similarities to Jimmy Eat
World and Sugarcult.
Endway's lead singer Morgan Dorr displays a vocal prowess
comparable to Gavin Rossdale - when in Bush. His band
mates Chris Burns on bass guitar and backup vocals, Kevin
McHugh on guitar and backup vocals, and Scott James on
drums keep in sync with Dorr's vocal maneuvers and move the power
chord progressions into exciting dynamics that thrust and back off
with acute reflexes.
Hailing from Watertown, Massachusetts, Endway has been fortunate
to see a few of their tracks like "I Ain't No One" and "Acoustic
Song" being featured on the MTV series The Real World Austin,
The Real World Key West, and the Inferno II. Their mixes
rove between introspective power ballads like "And You"
and "Acoustic Song" interspersed with energetic melodic
rock numbers like "And We Live" and "Always."
The vibrating rhythm motions and spinning guitar reflexes on "Hey
Babe" are engaging with swirling dynamics motoring a high geared
velocity. The hard edge on the fomenting guitar riffs for "This
Town Forever" crank up the vocal layers and create a chamber
rock aria with propelling rhythmic movements. "Feelin' Love"
garners punk-induced guitar thrusts while "Acoustic Song"
plumes a softer complexion. The guitar tension on "One Lonely
Night" is reflective of Trapt with a stimulating vocal
melody complementing its fiery sonorousness. The band delves into
dramatic guitar lines and pronounced bass pulls on "I Ain't No
One" which sounds off like 30 Seconds To Mars.
Endway layers vocals and fires off guitar bends and bass moves with
the precision of modern rock bands like Trapt and Sugarcult,
and yet they create their own inscriptions within the escalating chord
structures. Their songs wear the band's heart on their sleeves, belting
out aggressive chord arcs with emotive voraciousness. Their power
chords range from classic to experimental, always keeping the arrangements
in a melodic domain. The movements have dynamic reflexes and an energetic
velocity that makes one wonder does it get any better than this.
