Music Under Sea Crafts Unique Sound Filled With Intrigue

25 Jan

Eric Frisch recently released his album entitled Music Under Sea and it definitely mixes the sound of alternative rock with indie pop. The soft sounds in the track Drift Away show a 50s and 60s pop music influence, comparable to The Hollies or The Mamas & The Papas. Frisch also cites bands like Real Estate and Best Coast as influencing his sound as well. Another quality that stands out amongst Music Under Sea is the production and how it sounds. Recorded in his New York Studio with two microphones, Frisch states that it sounds like the sound is underwater. In a world filled with so much autotuning and editing, the raw and minimal lo-fi sound of Music Under Sea draws listeners in even more. Overall, the songs, aesthetic, and name all fit together perfectly in Frisch’s musical puzzle.

King Ropes Mixes Its Influences Into Refined Sound

20 Jan

With the initial sounds of King Ropes sounding grunge rock, listeners can appreciate a light ambient dream pop sound to their aesthetic as well. The right amount of drumming and soothing lyrics makes listeners experience this album, Dirt to the fullest degree. Guitarist and front man Dave Hollier shows not only his wide range of lyrical writing, but also the naming of his tracks shows a reflective undertone as well. Hollier explains that Dirt mixes the “gritty stuff while balancing out the pretty sweet elements”. Carrying a vagabond and traveler’s vibe as well, the album began in Brooklyn, continued in Los Angeles, and ended in Montana. While Hollier carries the album, credit is also due to drummer Konrad Meissner, Dylan Trevelen, Ben Roth, and Adam Wolcott Smith. A mixing of all these talents and the influences Dirt was around from beginning to end makes King Ropes a band everyone should listen to.
