The Procession – Major and Minor

Aaahhhh, The Byrds and The Beatles legacy is colourfully appreciated once again, where would we be without it, eh? The odd key change and power surges push up the impact of the McCartney-esque vocals of J. Paul Zawecki. This flitting A-side of wistful then power pop music uses ordinary everyday characters, to bring reality to their lyrics and authenticity to their songs.

A tick-tock acoustic element keeps ‘Lady Post’ in a milder groove, allowing for a softer vocal frolic and a range of calming backing that ride in on the keyboard kicking instrumental. The accompaniment starts to broaden out mid-song, before Zawecki gets more frantic, toying with his own emotions. Despite the familiarity of the structure, it is made up for in the quartet’s sincere delivery.
