Track of the Day #116: ST.MARTiiNS – 9Teen

Posted by Neil Wilson

ST.MARTiiNS - 9Teen
Following up from previous release Bite; which was also a Track of the Day; Dundee errant spellers ST.MARTiiNS return with the debut single proper 9Teen.

With it’s ghostly reverb guitar intro 9Teen plays out a strong emotive feel.  As before Katie Lynch’s melodic vocals float over a progressive indie rock base which climbs in both tempo and intensity throughout the track.  Once that upper level is reached mid-track though it’s easily the highlight.  ST.MARTiiNS are smart enough though to show restraint and it’s a short lived high, before fading out much as the track began.  There’s some really nice production touches with 9Teen – little climbing guitar notes at the start, and strong harmonies during the chorus – which bode well for the future.  Intelligent writing from ST.MARTiiNS marks them as ones to watch.
