Zzyzx Road – Trey Warner (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

With a solid background in film and also having spent his formative years opening for alternative rock and pop-punk stalwarts such as Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World and Incubus, it is no accident that Trey Warner writes songs that blend both melodic drama and a sort of wide-screen and filmic bredth.

The opening title track is an explosive slice of alt-rock but one filled with infectious melodies and a wonderful dynamic ebb and flow. And from this epic start, he shifts gears through the evolved and anthemic pop-punk of Someday I’ll Be Gone, the foot-on-the-monitor, rock groove of It’s Over and ends with the reflective and sentimental blend of punch and panache of S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder.)

It is easy to see the inspirations and influences which drive Trey Warner but as always, where he is going sonically is a lot more interesting than where he’s been.
