The eclipsed check - The 150 greatest rock anthems of all time
Stomping, combative, polemic, ecstatic - rock anthems can present themselves in this way and in completely different forms of mood. In any case, they have always stood for the great emotional theatre in popular music. The eclipsed editorial team has brought together the 150 most exciting representatives of the hymn-like song from six decades and allowed showers to trickle down their backs several times. Welcome to the stage of larger-than-life gestures!
Strong women, struggle and social disruptions have always been at the centre of Matt Page's texts. While the debut "Lost And Gone Forever" (2011) was based on the Oscar-winning documentary "Harlan Country, USA" about a miners' strike in Kentucky in 1976 (Page also told the story of his grandparents here), the singer/guitarist on his successor "Heretics" (2014) was mainly concerned with the suffragettes movement at the beginning of the 20th century, which finally led to the implementation of women's suffrage in the USA and Great Britain. Matt Page is always particularly interested in the respective motifs, the contradictions and the social processes that are set in motion. And so "Beneath The Dark Wide Sky" fits seamlessly into this complex of themes.
Effort and struggle have always been central themes in the work of singer/guitarist Matt Page. No different on "Beneath The Dark Wide Sky", the in every respect amazing third album of his band Dream The Electric Sleep. The influences of the musically extremely disgruent trio develop a unique power and atmosphere also on the successor of the already 2014 highly praised "Heretics".
