Eddy Yang Brings All The Grit & Angst On In The City Track

16 Mar

Gear up your headphones and be ready to without a doubt dance along the sidewalk. Eddy Yang in his A New City EP shows not only strong vocals as a singer, but the instrumentals work together as well on his EP. From start to finish, it flows in a cohesive and well arranged way. With a mixture of self reflecting and the theme of being on a quest of self discovery, Yang not only delivers through his strong lyrics, but closing your eyes and listening, he hits on all the right emotions. With the mixture of the beat sounds as well, it puts the music in the category of rock, but also has the elements of soul and hip-hop. When thinking of bands that are similar, I would reference Goo Goo Dolls, Smashing Pumpkins, and The Verve for the rock elements of his music and City & Color, Conor Oberst, and Sonic Youth for the punk and grit influences.

Jane In Space Makes Audience Rethink About Industrial Rock In Track Feel It Alive

18 Aug

With the introduction of Feel It Alive, Jane in Space manages to show dark music in a modern, yet moody light. Contrast to your typical industrial rock, Jane in Space accompanies the dark sound with the perfectly balanced synths and exaggeration of the song title in various combinations throughout the track. Doing so, almost creates an otherworldliness among the audience that Jane in Space plays to. In addition to that, it almost induces a transcendental connection to Feel It Alive as well. Mastered by Tom Baker, who is credited with mastering songs of the sounds of Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, and Wolfmother to name a few, uses his mastering signature in Jane in Space’s intentional sound. All in all the tone of Feel It Alive may sound dark, but it brings those who listen to it alive and emotionally charged.
