The October Game – Answers and Keys

I came across The October Game and their newest track Answers and Keys thanks to one of my friends I share music with and I have discovered something that simply cannot go unnoticed.

A track that has a lot of power.  Brilliant, strong, dark and catchy. Its sound will have your attention within a few seconds and you’ll soon realize this is one of the coolest tracks you’ve recently heard. Haunting vocal and lyrics will get into your head quick enough and you’ll soon find yourself repeating  ‘I’ve got the answers and keys in my own head…’

Once you hear Answers and Keys, you won’t be able to help yourself but play it all over again.

The October Game consists of five members:

Luke Williams – Vocals/Guitar
Nick Kozuch – Guitar
Owen Stephen – Bass/Vocals
Ollie Taylor – Drums
Nick Murray – Viola/Keys

The good news is that this alternative rock band from London has released two albums already and they are full of amazing tracks!

You can listen and download Box Of A Billion Lights and Wildblood on their page http://www.theoctobergame.bandcamp.com.

With Answers and Keys, The October Game is finally getting the well deserved recognition and whatever they’ll come up with in the future, we better watch out!
