Taken from the forthcoming 5-track EP, Take A Holiday is one of Juxtaposition's more accessible songs. It's hard to describe, and it's not often I'm lost for words. The more I listen to this song the more I'm liking it. The song in itself is a relatively simple indieish track with a Who-like introduction. As is the fashion with Juxtaposition, there is one guitar playing the song, whilst another arrapegiates meanderingly over the rest of the music. This has the potential to be messy, but puts the relaxed feel of the track nicely into perspective. However, it's the attention to detail that makes me love this song. As the chorus breaks in a wail breaks out in perfect time with the rise of the music.
After the song seems to have ended there is a chilled instrumental part, which is indescribably calm, being from a punk background, I'm forever waiting for the kick of the drums, and a pick scrape on a guitar to kick into a repeat of the chorus, but lo! The band just meander back towards the chorus in a relaxed style giving the impression that they will get there as and when they feel like it.
Ultimately this is an excellent example of where guitar music can be taken if you avoid all the clichés available at the moment. I only hope that the forthcoming EP is of the same standard as this track.
