Celebrity Warship Culture Channels Post Punk Vibes In Latest Single

22 Sep

Rebirther by Celebrity Warship Culture channels some post punk vibes in their latest single. With Liam Scott leading the way within Celebrity Warship Culture, the ambient-new wave genre definitely comes through. The sounds of the keyboardist Todd Pickell, drummer Mark Pickell, and Trevor Gay on the guitar and contributing vocals all add something to the album. The song carries an intense feel from start to finish, intertwining the themes of religion and the idea of forgiveness within it as well. Musically Celebrity Worship Culture intertwines the perfect mix of new wave music, grunge, and light rock in their sound. When listeners draw comparisons to other artists, they can think and make connections to Lemuria, Meatloaf, and Neil Diamond. The wide range of their sound musically ranges from that new wave synth to the anthems of music that have the vocals carrying each song on the album.

River of Light Mesmerizes Listeners With Styko’s Sultry Voice & Feeling Of Rock + Roll

28 Nov

Listening to Kristina Styko will mesmerize you from the very beginning. With her sultry voice accompanying her acoustic guitar, Styko brings a feeling of rock and grill with a dash of grit. Out of all the tracks on her album River of Light, the one that is a strong standout is State Line Diner and At The Edge. From setting up the narrative to describing certain emotions in story form, Styko connects with the audience that is listening to her music effortlessly. Diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia back in 2017, nothing stops Kristina Styko which makes her music even more inspiring. Spasmodic dysphonia causes speaking and singing to be sometimes difficult to articulate and get sounds out. It should not come as a surprise that her isolated Thoreau like retreat in Vermont contributes to her unique and raw sound in her music. If listeners think that this is a talented musician, her talent exceeds that of a vocalist and she has put herself in the category of producer in her studio Pepperbox and record label owner of Thunder Ridge Records. If a strong female musician that organically creates her music by her own will, does not inspire you, I do not know what will.
