Rapture is aptly named as it’s something of a sonic delight, with lots of layers of sound and effects revealing themselves upon multiple listens. Further, each syllable of every word feels like it’s been thought about, and they are squeezed out sparingly in a very light and frothy style, often slightly behind the beat, which feels extra cool.
Bringing together delicacy of concept and tone, Don’t Leave Me rises up from acoustic purity to full-band warmth throughout its captivating and uplifting four-minute journey – impressing all the more so with each new moment that passes.
Not for the faint of heart, Puke & Barf live up to their name with these visuals. Defiantly a step in a more distinctive and musically satisfying (no pun intended) direction for the creative duo.
High energy, high shock factor, as well as being creatively free from anything predictable or common. At the same time, the melody, the synths, the development of the soundscape – it all works hard to build around you something that’s quickly familiar.
A heavy & noteworthy attack on the senses. A simple beat begins the process, later erupting into retro electronic rock with an ongoing layer of distortion & double vocals that grind & wind their way into your consciousness.
I messed up my life & had to start a new one. The baseline is my old life & I had to let it go. A part of me died, but in a beautiful way.
“There is a concept, it’s about bad decisions people make, it’s about lies, secrets, the cold silence & the comforting noise that surrounds us.”
A fascinating concept. This next album is indeed one for the fans, one that puts it’s audience first & doesn’t include anything that isn’t deemed worthy.
The energy is on point, intense & hyper – likely to leave even the laziest of listeners feeling the need to get up & go do something.
There’s a heavily emotional ambiance that completely soaks you in feeling & reflective lyricism. An exciting collaboration between two artists.
A superbly manic and captivating set of visuals to accompany the distorted and riff heavy mind bender that is ‘Chaos Is My Middle Name’.
