      The Cranberries was one of the most famous rock bands of the 90’s. On 1999 they released “Promises” as a single of their “Bury the Hatchet” album. That song was a major hit and is my favorite Cranberries song and one of the best songs from the 90’s.

      The song is great in so many levels. It is alternative rock with a tint of post-punk. The melody is very simple but the guitars, both clean


      and with distortion, merge in a way that create a solid base for Dolores to sing on. It starts with Dolores humming with just a clean guitar on the back, then a distorted guitar starts and the sound just keeps getting bigger after that. Dolores’ voice has so much power on the song. The thing I like about her voice is that it’s almost another instrument. There are moments of the song in which ...

      • Dolores sings along with the guitar melody and sounds just like another guitar. There is also one moment when Dolores is singing over the drums, that sounds awesome too.

        “Promises” has a very melancholic and dark sound Is a song about a broken relationship with very straightforward lyrics. Is a song about broken promises and a relationship coming to its end. It is not a sad song though it is just a powerful way of

        showing regrets.

        “Promises” is an awesome song. There, The Cranberries showed how that even they were mostly an alternative and pop rock band, they could also make solid songs with a much harder sound. It was a great single, I remember watching the video for the song a lot on MTV and VH1 and the video was great too, it has the same dark look that the song has, with Dolores encarnating some sort of sorceress.
