Defined by strong melodies and imaginative song-writing, Reach are always developing their sound, keen to remain ahead of the curve with songs that are both exciting and unique. The trio is characterized by a mutual love of music and a sense of development and genuine joy, that is, and always will be, the very essence of Reach. The bond that connects the three musicians is captured in their explosive and unforgettable live shows: their innate musical ability bolstered by their sense of playfulness, improvisation and love for what they do.
By releasing a series of singles last year, Reach has been defining the start of a new musical era and let their listeners into the alluring, ghostlike and gritty world they create around them and their music. With each single, they have been challenging their listeners by showcasing next level of the experimental songwriting and powerful storytelling that is Reach.
The band’s new album, ‘The Promise of a Life’, is the end result of trio that approach their art with no holds barred, anything goes in the pursuit of the perfect song, and ‘The Promise of a Life’ is packed with just that; from the anthemic ‘The Law’, to the equally epic ‘Motherland’, onto the hook-laden ‘Higher Ground’ or the wonderfully eccentric ‘New Frontier'. This is an album that wears its heart on its sleeve. There’s echoes of the majestic Queen intertwined with modern pop sheen of Muse, expertly corralled into a unique, fresh package by a young band that have no fear.
