Near Death Experience (NDX) kick start the summer with the release of new single
‘Religion’ – a brooding, steamy, grooving slice of addictive rock’n’soul that
builds from throbbing bass to guitar-screaming crescendo via a soulful chorus that’s
so infectious you’ll never shake it off – even if you’ve been double vaccinated.
The religion in this case is the rhythm, which singer Ian Whiteling preaches like an
evangelical clergyman, drawing you in with a velvet growl that builds to a climax in the chorus where he demands: “I’m a believer, believe in me!”
Guitarist Bill Marten counters Whiteling’s chorus melody beautifully with a lead line
that’s straight out of the glam 70s. NDX also wear their influences on their sleeve with
a series of rising horn passages that ramp up the tension in psychedelic soul fashion
before the chorus hits.
Meanwhile, the funky drumming and Moroder-esque bass line, delivered by Amar
Grover, wrap ‘Religion’ in a delicious warm groove, that continues to drive the song
forward towards its thrilling climax of rising guitars and howling vocals. The rhythm is
indeed the king!
