With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
They’ve always been a versatile bunch and Panic! At The Disco have managed to check off the polished pop sensibilities with their latest release Pray For The Wicked, having already crossed off the emo-pop, baroque rock and thespian style genres that found them successes in their noughties breakthrough. There’s one thing that has always stayed consistent throughout this act’s music endeavours and career though, and that’s the impressively theatrical vocals of charismatic frontman Brendon Urie - which makes sense currently as he now remains the only member of the former group. His stint on broadway has surely polished his voice as he flirts between his comfortable tenor to a falsetto that should seemingly be out of range with ease, all carried over the chaos of an abundance of instruments as jazz influences seep in with brass band elements and of course his staple of pop-rock.
Panic At The Disco will be joining the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, Fall Out Boy and more at Leeds Festival this August Bank holiday weekend.
