The Soundcloud comments on Australian group Digital Order’s new single, “On Our Way” make the obvious comparisons to Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath, but this band’s sound is a bit more subtle and sensitive. The Perth group who crowdsourced their tracks and gained a lot of attention in 2014 are showing a higher level of artistry with this new track.
“On Our Way” combines heavy guitars with vocal sensitivity and modern electronic production to create something that sounds like a cross pollination of Led Zepplin, Bon Iver and Muse. Andy Beerly’s guitars wind back and forth between folksy acoustic and big ballad rock while Shane Ariti’s vocal tone is heart-rending and uplifting at the same time. Keyboardist Will Cruz clinches the sound for this single by supplying echo effects and a subtle background synth that pulls the whole track together.
By the looks of it, Digital Order are well on their way to establishing a unique sound for themselves while exploring many styles and genres along the way. “On Our Way” is available to stream and purchase on Bandcamp along with many of Digital Order’s other tracks.
