Review by Dave Adair
Haunting, echoing sonic rock with a The Sonic Youth/The Cardigans kick and, the coup de grace of a Blondie in chill out mode edge to the vocals is the chosen approach, ‘Faded Glory’. Jill Sullivan’s vocal display is one of variety and her build up to the lofty delivery of the poetic part of the lyrics, lends the song some vocal mystique to go with the murky accompaniment.
This expansive, driving atmospheric rock foray is one of the more compelling, meaningful and well built numbers from the hit and miss ‘Spitting Daggers’ album. It’s a song that takes on even more potency in a live setting.
