DENALI [I]THE INSTINCT[/I] REVIEW
Another tip of the cap to the folks at Jade Tree for looking beyond the current trends and finding this rough little gem of a band and letting it shine brightly on this record. Motivated by influences too numerous and far-reaching to list, Denali is a band of the purest kind. Completely untainted by dreams of commercial success, Denali’s music is a wholesome journey through self-discovery that will leave your spine tingling with anticipation from song to song. Comprised of an array of eclectic instruments, both electronic and not, the melodies are well developed yet subtle enough to let the lead female vocals guide the songs with the honest observations on life in general. It is the very sincerity that makes Denali such an enjoyable listen that will in fact see this record attain a high level of success without compromising its integrity.
