The Listening Post: No Sozopol

 Some bands aren’t made to last forever, meaning that a lot of the time they leave behind music that will remain unchanged and won’t be marred by the band’s unsuccessful ‘change of direction.’ No Sozopol is one of those bands. Having disbanded in 2011, shortly before the release of their debut album ‘Now That We Have Your Attention’, No Sozopol’s music is just resting, silently waiting to be heard.

The songs on the album combine both indie and pop rock sensibilities with strong, unwavering vocals. Stand out track ‘Demist My Head Freeze My Heart’ starts timidly with jangly guitars and group vocals before climbing to rock-like riffs making it seem like it’s two songs that have been melded into one. It effectively shows the band’s capabilities and musicality. ‘Now That We Have Your Attention’ is available as a free download here, so now you have no excuse! Below is the video for ‘Claustrophobia’, the first single off the album.
