Release Radar #29

 Another week another release radar, let’s take a look at this week’s line-up!

Trust Me- Sincere Engineer

Trust Me- Sincere Engineer

Kicking right in with drums and vocals, the song quickly adds guitars to the mix. Without slowing down the song flows into the chorus. The Second verse takes thing a little slower which gives the change to chorus even more energy. The bridge keeps with the raw emotional energy but does make thing a little dreamier, after a short break of the instruments the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically dealing with depression in a metaphorical way, lines such as “it’s coming after me” and “I wanna ride my bike but I feel dead inside” it also talks about the lies of your future self.    

What I like about the song are Deanna her raw and emotional vocals, together with the fast-paced instrumentation on the song.   

Selective Sacrifice – Like Moths To Flames

Selective Sacrifice – Like Moths To Flames

Opening with fast but dreamy strumming guitars, the song slowly introduces distorted guitars and drums to the mix. The vocals of the first verse kick right in with a combination of screaming and grunting. The chorus combines clean and grunting vocals as well as heavy guitar riffs. The second verse is shorter and sounds more like a moshcall in vocals and instruments. The song reintroduces the chorus before taking it slower on the bridge. Adding clean vocals and long screams, before ending on the feedback of one last heavy guitar strum.

Lyrically the song takes thing a little more morbid, dealing with the questions about the afterlife and talking about being empty and along. This al ends with the harsh reality that the only guarantee of life, is that you rot alone in the grave.

What I like about this song is the contrast between the clean and grunting vocals as well as the way the instrumentation gives the choruses an extra edge. 

In Passing – Bloom

In Passing – Bloom

Kicking off immediately with grunting vocals and instrumentation consisting of fast drums and distorted guitars. The song doesn’t slow down on its first verse. The chorus breaks thing up by introducing clean vocals into the mix but does keep the overall energy of the song. The bridge brings the song to a vocal high point before going into a slower direction. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song deals with a feeling of loss, and keeping up appearances that you feel fine after loss.

What I like about this song are is the fast-paced nature, this song just keeps going and keeps building its energy.  

Cotton Candy- Yungblud

Cotton Candy- Yungblud

Opening with dreamy bass, Yungblud his calming vocals are slowly added into the mix. The chorus keeps in line with the dreamy summer vibe. The song seems the seamlessly switch between the chorus and verse. The bridge gives the guitar a moment of it’s own. One last chorus ends the song.

Lyrically the song deals with love in the modern age and the new outlook people have on it, described by Yungblood as an addiction to love, but also as a liberating thought.  

What I like about this song is the sweet summer vibe, the title is fitting as this sounds like musical cotton candy.

Page One Rewrite-Two and a Half Girl

The song slowly opens with heavy riffs, before introducing raw vocals into the mix. The pre-chorus adds stuttering guitars and grunting vocals to the mix. The chorus itself goes all out with fast guitars and raw energetic vocals. The second verse opens with a moment full of drum and guitar, and then switches back to grunting and raw clean vocals. On the bridge the band goes for a bass break and shredding guitars. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is about hiding your true self, and feeling that you need to hide your true self, as in you want to rewrite your life.    

What I like about this song are for the most part the raw vocals, as well as the heavy introduction into the song.
