Ellis By 1st Base Runner Captivates Rock Into Another Dimension

22 Apr

Take one listen to Ellis by 1st Base Runner and listeners are captivated by the rock-flo style as they are pushed into another dimension. The sounds of low-fi keyboard paired up with the drums on track Near Me really entice the listener into what they are hearing. As the album progresses, so does the style of music. When listening to Ellis, the best way one can describe it would be that of a portal of sound is opened every time you get deeper and deeper in the album. Numbers really shifts the listener to a darker sound, with lyrics such as “I never learned to believe in myself”. With the synth sounds and ethereal arrangement, the track alone makes the album. When reflecting on influences of the band and who they sound like, one can draw similarities between Radiohead, Aphex Twin, and Godspeed!, but the band really does have a sound all of its own.
