The album Robot Raven Rockers brings together a whopping 18 original songs that collectively showcase the absolute best of the band’s abilities and raw energy.
The rise & fall of the progression, the movement through the notes, both string & wind, gives off a sense of waves lapping at the shore, or perhaps of a tired chest breathing slowly & deeply.
Driving under the label of ethnic country music, Lost Highways bring together elements of country, folk, and middle Eastern musicianship throughout their releases, often taking on classic songs & throwing their own energy & style into the process.
A fine short collection – unique in its creative freedom yet rhythmically soothing enough to simply let play; evidently on repeat. There are certain traits within each piece that offer a clear level of individuality.
There’s a sense of artistry to everything about the song – to the musicality, the changing stages, the passion in the vocal, the lyrics. There’s also a level of theatre to the delivery & the second vocal fragments that echo certain ideas.
There’s depth and a little sadness, this song in particular brings together these elements in a captivating way. The more you hear, the more it connects.
I think it’s really easy to see through a song that doesn’t come from an honest place, and to me it’s a turnoff. I do my best to write in a way that every word is exactly what I mean to say.
Alien Skin’s fine balance between entrancing rhythms & fragments of provocative ideas is fascinating & gives the listener a strange sense of privilege; as if this exclusive experience has only been had by the lucky few.
The song offers a supremely mellow beat, well-built & easy to vibe to – creating the ideal kind of chilled out ambiance within which music fans can embrace the very sentiments of the song & enjoy the good times.
Smooth & strong vocals lead the way, drawing you over initially with a spacious, near-acoustic musicality – a gorgeous guitar part – and a series of lyrics that paint a picture of overcoming & moving forwards.
This entire EP is a simple joy, inspiring songwriting with a cheerful outlook and an undertone of truthfulness that’s well worth appreciating.
The artist name encapsulates many of the feelings incorporated into the EP. The struggle is clearly very real, but the work that came from it is quite magnificent – often the way things tend to go in art & music.
