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.

Native Gold Presents Dualistic Sound In Track Fickle

28 Jun

Native Gold brings their alternative and electronic sound right to the forefront of listener’s ears when listening to their soon to be released EP A Man We All Admire. Fickle sounds very similar to Frou Frou, Menomena, and Radiohead all wrapped in one group. With heavy electronic and static tones to their music, qualities of those groups all seem to find a way through their overall sound to music aficionados. With a progressive and alternative rock feel to the track Fickle, Native Gold presents their sound in a dualistic nature to listeners. Other tracks on their EP, A Man We All Admire, sound equally synthesized, simply highlighting their carved out tone for the continuity among the tracks. An emphasis on the words and meaning of overall fickleness makes the song haunting and intentionally melancholic. Native Gold will bring listeners in another world with their evolving, yet otherworldly sound.
