Sluka Releases Ready To Connect With Progressive Rock Genius

13 Jul

Take one listen to Sluka and you will find nothing short of energy within their vocals and songs. With the anthem repeating Ready To Connect, Sluka makes sure to sound militant and steadfast in their delivery. The progressive rock instrumentals setup this almost galaxy like world, and Sluka invites you into their auditory space. Their lyrics are somewhat political as they make a statement about society with force “ready to connect, every time we pick and choose, ready to connect”. One could infer that they are referencing society’s decisions and how much power an individual has in choosing to choose to connect, while in ironicness not connecting. When listeners hear this band, they can hear similarities to David Bowie, The Monkees, and Dhani Harrison. The band is made up of Lis Viega, Alexandra Holt, Anna Eppink, and Christopher Sluka. With the alternative rock and post punk vibes running through the single, audiences should listen to this single in anticipation of more out of this world music to come.

3 Apr

Coming after the debut album of Feminine Endings, Nest of Vipers carries references of its own throughout the song list. Inspired and fueled with creative sparks after realizing that the translation of Cancún meant “land of snakes”, listeners can sense that each and every one of these songs have an intention and association with them. One of the standout tracks on the album include I’m Writing To Say with lyrics such as “remember I love you as long as I’m alive”. The song has a no frills arrangement, but anyone who has gone through heartbreak is immediately connected to that memory due to D.G. Adam’s vibrant writing. Some influences that one can connect to this sound include The Hollies, David Bowie, and Rufus Wainwright. On the other end of the arrangement and musical tone, include Platonic Lovers. Adam’s does an excellent job at incorporating Latin and jazz elements within the song and the feel-good doo wop background vocals give the song added atmosphere. From start to finish, Nest of Vipers surprises listeners along the way with a variety of sounds, themes, and the auditory experience along the way.

Post Death Soundtrack Brings Listeners In A Dreamworld

4 May

Hailing from Canada, Post Death Soundtrack does not disappoint with its new wave trip hop sound.  Set to release May 27th, a standout track from their upcoming album entitled The Unlearning Curve holds David Bowie undertones and elements of new wave. You Can’t Go Back delves deep into a narrative of a wandering mind, with poignant lyrics such as “you can’t go back, the system is out of order, and we all throw our hands out”. Further making references to falling in a rabbit hold will make the listener think they are reminded of Alice In Wonderland and the merging of reality and dreaming collide. Within the track as well are references to serpents as well, perhaps alluding to a forbidden fruit concept as well in such a simple, yet complex track. If you are wanting to listen to a band that has classical influences mixed with some new age thinking, The Unlearning Curve from Post Death Soundtrack should be next on your musical playlist.
