Savage Nomads, the five-piece band from South London have a lot to live up to, after the success of their debut album Coloured Culture. Tension in the Middle attempts to display their diversity; diluting Savage Nomads garage band sound with characteristics commonly found in piano ballads, this song demonstrates the band’s eagerness to stand out. With the piano taking the melody’s lead for the majority of the song, Tension in the middle breaks the mould with its serene yet quirky disposition. However, lacking the gusto shown in their debut release, the upcoming Tension in the Middle EP, due to release on May 24th may cower in the shadow of Coloured Clutter.
