Small Reactions

Small Reactions

Even before I starting writing for this site, I went through all the bands I could find in Atlanta and tried to decide what I liked. Small Reactions was one of the first bands I settled on. They’re really solid, and I hope I get the chance to see them live soon!

Go to their Bandcamp page and check out the five tracks they have listed there. They’re all really great. “Nerve Pop” from their August 2011 releases is probably my favorite. It’s catchy, and of these five it’s the obvious choice for a single.

“Teaser Trailer/Sudden Walks” is super solid too though. I’m a sucker for beautiful/sloppy guitar solos, and this five minute track has plenty. Once the bass slides up, everything breaks out for a second, and then blasts back in way faster it gets crazy. It’s a song about repetition! Perfect! Perfect! That’s one of the best themes for lyrics in my opinion. They list Sudden Walks separately as well on the Bandcamp, but I think you should definitely listen to the version that includes Teaser Trailer. That transition is great. Transitions are totally another thing I’m a sucker for. This is definitely my favorite Small Reactions track.

If you get a chance, go see Small Reactions live! I’m sure that they’re great! They’re playing at Moccasin Bend Brewery in Chattanooga on March 9th and The Earl in East Atlanta on March 31st. Hopefully these dudes will be making it up here to Middle Tennessee soon too!
