Boston’s Elsewhere is able to build upon the foundations of acts like R.E.M. and Collective Soul on their new single, The Pledge. Elsewhere is able to deftly link together emotional pleas with seriously intricate instrumentation. Challenging norms of traditional time signatures, there’s even a bit of a nod to prog-rock legends like Pink Floyd here. Elsewhere creates a cut in The Pledge that will require individuals to strap on their favorite pair of headphones to hear everything that the act has secreted within. Even at five minutes, this track goes by quickly. Few acts are able to make such a fulfilling effort in such a neat bundle, The Pledge is glorious.
