“See What You Want” by Limberlost
Musically, I feel very fortunate to have been a teenager during the 1970’s. I grew up listening to legendary Classic Rock. I love all kinds of music, but I get really excited when I hear a new band with a Classic Rock sound. Limberlost is one of those bands I am EXCITED about!
Within 45 seconds of listening to their new single “See What You Want”, I had chills running up and down my spine, and every hair was standing up on my arms. And it stayed that way during the entire song. WOW! Right out of the gate, they grab your attention and never let it go. Krystle Pyette’s voice is one of the most powerful rock female voices I’ve heard in a long time. Coupled with Cirke Cherockee’s R&B soul-filled voice…it’s simply breathtaking . Then you throw in Ricky Dunn killing it on lead guitar, Ben Beman cruising in with the bass, keyboard wizard Raymond Hayden and Mike Burt’s dynamo drums…..it’s the perfect Rock and Roll Storm! The energy they create is phenomenal. “See What You Want” is one of those songs that engages your complete attention in every way, shape and form. When you’re finally released at the end of the song, you’re on your feet screaming YES! WANT MORE!!
I hear shades of Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, and of course one of my favorite bands, Heart. That powerful female fronted vocals, backed up by intense, energy filled instrumentalists. This is an amazing band to watch, as they continue to spiral up in popularity.
I’m a ‘make me feel something with your music’ kind of person. And, they definitely made me feel their music. I was recently chatting with Seattle’s own Ben Smith, who has been Heart’s drummer for the past 20+ years, and getting ready to go back on tour with new band Roadcase Royale. I loved what he said. “Making air move with music, is where it’s at with us.” That totally describes a great rock band.
Better hold on to your hats. Limberlost will blow you away!
