Sink The Ship : notre avis sur le disque "Persevere"

Le quintette easycore nord-amĂ©ricain s'apprĂȘte Ă  dĂ©voiler son nouvel album. Nous avons eu la chance de l'Ă©couter quelques jours avant sa sortie... 


Version Française đŸ‡«đŸ‡·

Il y a peu, nous vous parlions du retour de la formation easycore Sink The Ship sur le devant de la scĂšne avec la livraison de leur single "Domestic Dispute", en featuring avec Bert Poncet du groupe français Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! Sachez que le groupe dĂ©voilera, le 27 avril prochain, son nouvel album intitulĂ© Persevere via le label Sharptone Records. Nous avons eu la chance de l'Ă©couter avant sa sortie et nous souhaitions vous donner notre avis sur cette rĂ©alisation... 

Le premier titre de cette sĂ©quence d'Ă©coute, "Second Chances", donne le ton de l'opus. À l'instar des groupes qui les influencent comme A Day To Remember, Sink The Ship va rechercher l'Ă©quilibre parfait entre un pop punk efficace et la puissance du mĂ©talcore. Mais lĂ  oĂč le popcore du combo se distingue, c'est en cherchant constamment le facteur qui lui permet de breveter sa propre formule ! Ainsi, "Everything" rĂ©vĂšle une touche plus mĂ©tal, accentuĂ©e par la participation de Liv Benton, chanteur du groupe Miss May I au micro. "Persevere" ou "Trust Your Gut" nous proposent de sublimes guitares heavy et galopantes en fin de titre. On apprĂ©ciĂ© les breaks et les gangs vocals trĂšs hardcore sur "Exposing The Hype" tandis que "Deadweight" lorgne davantage du cĂŽtĂ© du pop punk avec un son plus radio-friendly et un message trĂšs positif :

« The world ain't against you like you say, you're just obsessed with negativity, drop the deadweight in your way, you gotta wake up... Â»

Au fur et Ă  mesure de l'Ă©coute, on se rend rapidement compte que l'Ă©tiquette "easycore" est rĂ©ductrice et que Sink The Ship est avant tout un trĂšs bon groupe de rock. La prĂ©sence de Eric et Bert Poncet derriĂšre la barre n'est pas Ă©trangĂšre Ă  la rĂ©ussite de cette recette. Il en rĂ©sulte une production propre et lisible, comme c'est souvent le cas avec les disques de Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! 

Mes coups de cƓur vont aux morceaux suivants : "Put Up Or Shut Up" et "Domestic Dispute". Le premier navigue dans des eaux un peu diffĂ©rentes et m'a immĂ©diatement scotchĂ© avec sa boucle Ă©lectronique en introduction. De surcroĂźt, son refrain est trĂšs enlevĂ© et trĂšs accrocheur. Un refrain de radio ! Ajouter Ă  cela de belles sĂ©quences et de bons breaks hardcore et vous retrouvez cette audace et cette fougue que j'aime chez des groupes comme Falling In Reverse par exemple. Le second, "Domestic Dispute", est remarquable en plusieurs points. Par sa couleur trĂšs radiophonique, ce qui est normal pour un single, et trĂšs entĂȘtante et par la participation de Bert Poncet de Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! qui ajoute une touche d'originalitĂ© Ă  l'ensemble. 

Concluons...

A l’heure oĂč style easycore se fait un peu plus discret dans l’ocĂ©an mĂ©diatique international, victimes des modes qui vont et viennent par vagues, Sink The Ship s’impose comme un groupe qui joue plus fort que les autres et qui n’a pas peur d’inonder la cale. Cap vers un succĂšs mĂ©ritĂ© maintenant ! 


English Version 🇬🇧

A few days ago, we talked to you about the return of the easycore band Sink The Ship with the release of their single "Domestic Dispute", featuring Bert Poncet from the French band Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! On April 27th, the band will unveil their new album entitled Persevere with Sharptone Records. We had the chance to listen to him before his release and we wanted to give you our opinion on this record... 

The first track of this listening session, "Second Chances", sets the tone of the opus. Like the bands that influence them like A Day To Remember, Sink The Ship will look for the perfect balance between effective pop punk and the power of metalcore. But where the combo's popcore distinguishes itself is by constantly searching for the factor that allows it to license its own formula ! Thus,"Everything" reveals a more metal touch, accentuated by the participation of Liv Benton, singer of the band Miss May I at the microphone. "Persevere" or "Trust Your Gut" offer us sublime heavy and galloping guitars at the end of the track. We like the breaks and the very hardcore gang vocals on "Exposing The Hype", while "Deadweight" looks closer to the pop punk side with a more radio-friendly sound and a very positive message :

« The world ain't against you like you say, you're just obsessed with negativity, drop the deadweight in your way, you gotta wake up... Â»

As one listens, one quickly realizes that the label "easycore" is reductive and that Sink The Ship is above all a very good rock band. The presence of Eric and Bert Poncet behind the helm is no stranger to the success of this recipe. The result is a clean and legible production, as is often the case with Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! records. 

My favorites songs are "Put Up Or Shut Up" and "Domestic Dispute". The first one sailed in slightly different waters and immediately glued me with his electronic loop in introduction. Moreover, his chorus is very lively and catchy. A real radio-friendly chorus ! Add some nice sequences and heavy hardcore breaks and you'll find this audacity and enthusiasm that I love in bands like Falling In Reverse for instance. The second, "Domestic Dispute", is remarkable in several ways : by its very radiophonic and catchy color, which is quite normal for a single, and by the participation of Bert Poncet from Chunk ! No, Captain Chunk ! which adds a touch of originality and strength to the song.

To conclude...

At a time when easycore style is becoming a little more discreet in the international media ocean, victims of fashions that come and go in waves, Sink The Ship is establishing itself as a band that plays stronger than the others and is not afraid to flood the hold. Let's sail to a deserved success now !
