Hurricane Ahead: A Listen To Make It Better by Sounds Like A Storm
Updated: Mar 24
They claim that they are from the green land of Yorkshire but would not sit out of place in the gritty, grunge rock venues of the States; foursome Sounds Like A Storm is currently shifting gears to explode over the nation with their new track Make It Better, dropped on March 23rd. Already selling out northern venues and coveted support slots for The Blinders and Twisted Wheel, festival appearances at Reading and Leeds and Bingly Weekender have piqued attention as their name spreads like lava.
Frontman Sennen Ludman penned the song during a time of trauma when his father was in hospital in the depths of a darkened January. As a coping strategy, he began to draw things he loves with his mind, earning a sense of calmness and hope. Irony rears its head from sentiments of isolation and loneliness that the whole country was undergoing due to the pandemic. But ultimately, it is an optimistic piece.
Blast and might drive the sound upped by the arena rock wattage from the scant starting line that then rages and forms through the pound of the drum and bursts of high pitched guitar. There are moments of crafted intricate bass and hushed timbres to strengthen their points, and Ludmans gravelled uttering declares: "But you can make it better, you can make it better for so long, staying here forever, staying here forever's what I want"
Offering encouragement, the performer summarises for us,
"The song is set to deliver hope; things will get better, they may not be the same as before, but they will get better.”
