To Whom It May Concern
One of America's best-kept secrets is lurking in the shadows of the Seattle-area music scene, quietly making a noise of it's own as a rock band with a heart. Lore and Mark Arrington haven't released a CD in a few years, but their latest five-song EP entitled 'To Whom It May Concern,' should bring smiles to their current fans and bring the artists new admirers. The Washington-based rock band with a conscience covers the good, the bad and the ugly sides of life with muscle and emotion. They match each song's mood with the best possible lyrics, tempo and instrumental arrangement to best convey the message--be that anger, hurt, deep longing or plain ol' social outrage. Even at it's most industrial and hard pounding instances, Lore's vocals remain strong and beautiful, well supported by overdubbing, interesting counterlines and Mark's rock-solid drumming. Lyrics are straight-ahead, on target and often cleverly crafted--best heard when Lore shows her sweet-voiced softer side. The Arringtons could begin making ripples in the rock music scene beyond their home base. They certainly should!
