Genre is far from a limitation here, more a suggestion, and with each track we get a new stage of change. Acoustic, gentle, distorted, heavy, fast-paced, whispered, artistic. Everything’s here, and all of it has purpose.
Bringing together an indie-funk, guitar-led soundscape and emo-rap melodies and sentiments, Joe Washko’s new single leads with colour and melancholy united.
Melodically pure, meandering and consistently creative, Empath unites stylish production qualities with a poetic and thoughtful undertone.
Reverb-kissed guitar work and heavier trap rhythms unite for this emotive yet bold new single from a contemporary-styled Hephaeus and gonedark.
The track is delicate then heavy, projecting its underlying intentions and the wave-like life of a nihilist in everything from the lyrics to the performances to the arrangement.
A heavy wash of production fuzz meets with crisp guitar riffs and a refreshingly upfront and vulnerable vocal lead for this contemporary emo-rap single from Flatlinerz.
Trap stylings meet with an emotional undertone that creates a sort of vulnerability and intimacy within the song.
Gentle acoustic guitar work meets with equally soft, sleepy vocals for this contemporary fusion of organic & electronic, emo-style song-writing & production.
The lyrics lean back & forth between regret & hope; the past and the future, ultimately balancing somewhere in limbo between mistakes & possibilities.
“The song on one hand is mourning the loss of a life, but also brings into question how to responsibly consume the information that’s coming towards us at light speed.”
Simple yet satisfying dual-riffs offer a guitar-led introduction into this genre-blending, brief yet contemporary and thoughtful new single from STASH STANTON.
In short, Beautiful Crime cries out for all of us, and leaves a gaping silent void behind when it comes to an end.
