Dead Harvest’s ‘Stay Around’ is hard rock with tons of presence and a throwback sensibility. The Chicago band describes itself as, “a four-piece band… entirely focused on creating songs that will stand the test of time and filling in the gap that currently exists in music with material that truly matters.” Through “memorable hooks in the musicianship and unforgettable imagery in their lyrics,” the band ensures us they “are sure to stick with you and resonate deep inside the very core of your being.” Something about these guys is deeply reminiscent of a long-gone generation of rockers led by groups like Blue Oyster Cult, The Grateful Dead and The Yardbirds. At the same time, the group is imbued with an indie-oriented garage rock energy that they seem to take from acts like The Black Keys and Jack White. The musicianship on here really stands out. Behind retro, classically great guitar work, the percussion pounds away tirelessly and the walking bass lines provide mystery and variation. On top of everything, some growling yet impeccably clear vocals streamline the track’s intent and further the group’s connection to their rock heritage. These guys really have it together.
