There's no shortage of impressive music emerging from Australia, like The Curse of Mary Sue and Jacob Butler, and being alerted to Tragic Earth and their deubt single "Feels Good, Could Be Better" confirmed that fact further in my mind. Tragic Earth makes sure you know what they're all about from the start by blasting through without a warning, maintaining a decadence redolent of 1980s hair metal as they strut through a cyclone of wailing, brazen guitars and vocals, an environment the four-piece group has clearly mastered by allowing the music to take Tragic Earth wherever it leads them while at the same time exerting full control of the reigns, making the musical maelstrom a purposeful and absolutely engrossing one. It's also an equilibrium that lends itself well to the lyrical themes of losing your head over a girl and how those suggestive impulses hint towards a good time, but that by pursuing and fulfilling it, it could be even better.
Though this is just the beginning for Tragic Earth, there's a couple takeaways to feel confident in standing behind after listening to "Feels Good, Could Be Better", that there's nothing saddening about their sound, and that of course there's room to expand and build upon their sound, it's already in a good place and doesn't necessarily have to improve in order to be better. Scheduled to release their first EP in March 2015 and following it up with a full-length later in the year, you'll probably want to get to know Tragic Earth now because I'd like to think we'll all be hearing their name and music a lot more soon enough!
