U.K. stars find lyrical niche

British shoegaze newcomers The Domino State have already exploded onto the U.K. music scene. The band recently unleashed their debut album, “Uneasy Lies the Crown,” and has made Britain its oyster with its we-shall-overcome mantras.

The band has found its niche in today’s ever expanding “alt-rock” landscape by blending airy vocals with earnest instrumental sounds to create an uplifting and inspirational experience.

Leadoff track “We Must Not Shut Ourselves Away” takes a slightly more intense direction than most shoegaze bands would dare attempt. The band successfully incorporates personal reflections of questioning one’s purpose in the world that simultaneously give the listener a peek into their souls.

With its themes of defiance, depression and optimism, “Uneasy Lies the Crown” has established The Domino State as the band to look out for this year.
