Negative Space is an unsigned alternative rock act out of Lancaster, PA. Their new CD, “Storylines” is a little lighter than some of the discs I have been listening to as of late, but it does seem to have a mix of styles which makes this an interesting listening experience.
Some songs such as “Diaries“, “Fairweather”, “Right Time” and “Falling” have just enough of hard guitar licks to keep me interested.
“Fairweather” is a tune that I could easily hear on modern rock radio. It is a song that could have some hit potential for Negative Space, if it gets enough airplay.
For whatever reason, “Falling” reminds me a lot of Nickelback. I could easily hear Chad Kroeger singing this song. It is very much in that vein.
The music on this “Storylines” sounds like a blend of many of today’s rock acts including Breaking Benjamin, Jimmy Eat World and maybe even a dash of Anberlin.
Josh Nice is good vocalist. His style and sound falls more into the Pop/Rock genre, but his vocals are well suited for the music on this disc.
Although I prefer my music to be more on the harder side, I believe “Storylines” is pretty good. It shows the raw potential of Negative Space. With a little help, these guys could be destined for big things!
Negative Space is:
Josh Nice – Vocals
Rick Lienhard – Guitar
Britain Roda – Guitar
Mark Reinmiller – Bass
Jimmy Everly – Drums
