The sound of The Macrotones is challenging to define by simplistic genre classifications, but it’s definitely worth your attention. Nevertheless, their experimentations with a comprehensive collection of various genres are unquestionably appealing to the listening apparatus. First Signs Of Danger is their second full-length recorded back in now distant 2011, but it’s still relevant today and deserves full attention of the broader auditorium, mainly because of its immeasurable quality. This record paved the direction for the group and served as a proper continuation of their debut album called Wayne Manor. Later on, these Boston, Massachusets natives released brilliant recordings such as a split release with Destroy Babylon, Darvaza 12” EP, Outknown Outpost CD, a double extended play called The Shark Eats housed on CD, a single with Rob Carmichael called Livid Revivalist, and Bloody Hands EP.

First Signs Of Danger contains twelve exceptionally performed compositions, empowered by a magnificent production. The Macrotones are combining essentials of afrobeat sound with the aesthetics of funk, jazz, Motown, and psychedelic rock. Still, the predominant sounds of afrobeat and funk music are overwhelming the remaining portion of the beforementioned genres. The Macrotones are relying upon their tremendous musical skills to convey a challenging but unquestionably ear-appealing sound comprised of addictive melodies and hypnotic rhythmical sequences. Still, there’s even more than meets the eye, and it awaits around the corner, ready to be discovered by the potential listeners.

Exceptional drumming performance holds the presented orchestrations in line with a comprehensive collection of thoughtfully arranged afrobeat rhythms, appealing accentuations, and catchy transitions. The percussions are surrendering more detailed maneuvers over the rhythm section through compelling articulations. The drums are also carrying the vast majority of orchestrations within the compositions, and undoubtfully are one of the most dominant instruments in the mix. Guitars are offering a variety of delightful funky chord progressions, while the bass guitar maintains the gaps between guitars and drums with warm-sounding low-end tones. The brass/horn/woodwind section liberates another layer of melodies over the top but also provides a colossal background to the complete ambiance. The keyboards are also contributing to the entire atmosphere through delicate accentuations, melodies, and other orchestrations. Considering the overall listening experience and the number of instruments involved in this particular recording, there’s no wonder why the First Signs Of Danger By The Macrotones appears as a very complex material stacked with engaging sounds and excellent musicianship.
