I’m a nonconformist & a contrarian. People like to be miserable & melancholy or own self-deprecation like it’s a religion. That’s unattractive to me.
The hook spirals around in your mind, building & building with the music; even in the aftermath of the audio – you’re still caught up in the song.
As the song moves forward, the softness evolves into a mass of energy & togetherness; highlighting some really skillful songwriting and musicianship.
Those guitars run away with themselves, creating this vibrant & chaotic ambiance; this world of instrumental sound within which you can really drift away.
A superbly manic and captivating set of visuals to accompany the distorted and riff heavy mind bender that is ‘Chaos Is My Middle Name’.
If that opening riff with it’s retro touch of funk doesn’t get you hooked – the longer you listen for; something, if not everything, undoubtedly will.
The heart & soul of grunge & punk rock is present; holding on to that passion, revisiting inspiring sounds, reigniting the indie rock flame.
There are moments of grunge-like funk in this song that are as bizarre as they are attractive. The music is new, exciting, and completely free of barriers.
The structure has a mind of it’s own, the songwriter has exercised their right to create freely & independently; the result is something quite mesmerizing.
Perhaps the biggest sound of the project, in terms of the instrumental involvement; the complex network of sounds and melodies.
There’s an anthemic & almost tribal sound to the vocals, which at times makes it feel like you’re witnessing some cultural initiation from a far away land.
The rock and blues fires out at you, as naturally and genuinely as possible. The guitar work is sensational, as is the thickness of those drums.
