Colorado Music Buzz Album Review - Invisible Ink
Nautical Mile: Invisible Ink [EP]
by Guy Errickson
Unabashedly pop-rock, Nautical Mile has the depth, complexity and talent to keep the serious music fan interested, along with the growing crowd of young & beautiful cheering in jubilation. Though considered pop, rock, and punk, the energy and uninhibited precision show bare hints of maiden-led metal. The band found fast success in 2009 on 93.3fm KTCL and when they were nominated for a Westword award in their first full year of existence, now with singer Janaya Spink, the newest member, the group busts forth unfettered. Co-founder and drummer Austin Rosén flings the beat forward, a dynamic powerhouse leading the band’s charge across their setlist. Dual lead guitars from co-founding partner James Anderson, and Jake Putnicki (Aurora Blooming) intensify the nascent excitement of their stage show, with bass from Justin Maul (Ghosts of Verona) being the pounding counter-thrust. Their songs have the truth of an open, eager, unspoiled soul.
