Featuring Tyler Wilford, the Australian duo Awaking Tyler have convincingly re-inflated the arena-rock sound associated with the genre’s best, such as Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe. “Live Again” has all the hallmarks of the form, including an urgent, impassioned, melodramatic delivery by Wilford. The faster-paced “Scream” leans a bit more toward ‘80s metal and features re-tread lyrics like “Nothing’s gonna stop us now!” and “We can make it work somehow!” The song showcases the band’s musicianship, particularly the drummer and guitarist, who really dazzle. Bottom line for this duo: their retro-sounding recordings could be of use to music supervisors looking for an affordable soundalike.
