Leading with the live warmth and weight of distorted, organic rock, JULAI and the Serotones quickly embrace listeners, as their self-titled debut album pours into view.
A joyful hit of organic funk and some infectious animated dancing is just about the perfect temporary remedy for feelings of isolation – of longing for the festivals and events our summers usually grace us with.
Lost My Ticket is a fine introduction to the Kuwait based band, but more than this – it’s a short collection of original songs that genuinely breathe new life into the music world.
Stunning vocals, simple yet effective, passionate and emotive – these ride along the top of a professionally crafted soundscape that showcases a somewhat humble yet impressive gathering of musicians.
“I dropped a tab of Acid and had just received the Masters for Avenue B, so that was playing in the background. I started getting the visuals from the music.”
Complete with a scheduled mini-series of accompanying music videos, ‘Avenue B’ offers a stunning collection of instrumentally masterful songs and passionate outpourings – each of which is as melodically addictive as it is cinematic and vibrant.
This entire EP is a simple joy, inspiring songwriting with a cheerful outlook and an undertone of truthfulness that’s well worth appreciating.
The songs pour through with their own sense of style, a certain fusion of genres, endless levels of passion & wonderful lyricism.
You get a sense this music comes naturally to the artist, which, combined with these folk-rock, acoustic ska rhythms & vibes, makes for a totally enjoyable EP.
One of his most intensely infectious riffs yet – a hard hitting, distorted synth set to wind its way into your consciousness in an instant. The track is heavy, ready to energize & uplift, the song’s subject matter leans in that direction too – offering motivation, a winner’s mentality.
Thoughtful words summon everyone to rise up from the depths of possessive & negative emotion, bolstering the idea that humans can indeed master their wild lions of passion. One can decide to swim in the dark & blame others for their emotional anguish, or Rise Up.
Exactly the band to make you remember what it is to be human. Every note is flawlessly hit. Every aspect of their sound is perfectly cobbled together to make a beautiful, terrifying, screaming, soaring single built to wake a generation asleep at the wheel.
