NTGB – “THE END OF ALL WE KNOW”

“THE END OF ALL WE KNOW” is a fantastic psych-friendly rocker from NTGB, a five-piece from Sunderland, UK. Initially beginning as a home recording project, the band completed their first two studio tracks this past December, at First Avenue Studios in Newcastle. Two more tracks were completed in April, one being “THE END OF ALL WE KNOW.” An album will be releasing later this year.

Prancing guitar tones and underlying distortion build to a hectic bass line. The sound is further enhanced by the embrace of Hammond organ, helping channel a ’60s/’70s spirit in general alongside the dual-vocal harmonizing. The excitable guitar work past the two-minute mark, in particular, resonates memorably with a charismatic organ infusion. The track presents multiple memorable components, from that exciting guitar work to the lushly melodic vocal harmonizing. “THE END OF ALL WE KNOW” is a surefire success from NTGB.

The band describes this track as “about growing old, looking back to what you have amounted to and ultimately death and what comes after.”

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2022’ Spotify playlist.
