Deaf Havana - All These Countless Nights (SO Recordings) 2017
Now, this record is something of a revelation, a monumental rock triumph, and it all comes from hurt hearts and bruised minds. All These Countless Nights is Deaf Havana’s compendium of emotional belters, complete with punchy riffs and breath-taking lyrics. Leading man James Veck-Gilodi matches his vocals with sneers of regret too. He’s numb, and showcases words that describe his relationship with alcohol, giving listeners an insight into his crippling mindset. He’s a wordsmith, there’s no doubt that, and he’s gifted as well as the rest of the band. And every track is a stellar reminder of Deaf Havana’s musical prowess. Songs such as “Fever” and “Sing”, eliminate any unconvincing notions.
