Release Radar #53

There are a slew of fresh release again, lets take a look at the five I got on my radar.

Numb- Waterparks

Numb- Waterparks

Kicking off almost immediately with loud guitars and electronic effects before introducing Awsten his quick and powerful vocals. With some rawer vocals on the chorus the band changes things back up to a rhythmic verse. After, the second chorus the bridge is just filled with all kind of electronic wackiness. The song also ends with these effects.

Lyrically the song follows the favorite subject of Awsten, the price of fame and dealing with musical success.

What I like about this song is the quick flow and how Awsten shows more of his “screaming” voice on this track.

Big Cat Judgement Day- With Confidence

Big Cat Judgement Day- With Confidence

Starting right of with the vocals the song quickly, the song introduces the instrumentals in a loud burst before going with a slower verse. Going back to its energy on the chorus the band repeats the opening of the song. The second verse seems to start the same as the first but does change things up with some tape effects and introduces the bridge with a count down. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is about having a painful past, you don’t want to repeat it but you also feel judged.

What I like about this song is the overall happy feel that is put in to the instrumentation and somewhat contrasts with the lyrical content.

Chase- Tash

Chase- Tash

Kicking of with electronic effects and looming vocals, the band quickly adds fuzzy guitars and deep bass to the song. The verse has a more eerie feel to it, with an instrumentation almost completely carried by drums and bass. Going back to the guitar on the chorus the vocals also get louder to than go back to the darker tones of the verse. Returning the electronics on the bridge, the vocals get into a dream feel before one last chorus is introduced by fuzzy guitars.  

Lyrically the song deals with the subject of panic and the relive after it, and breaking out of old habits  

What I like about the song is the dark and gloomy feel with the song.  

Somethings Missing- Farhampton

Somethings Missing- Farhampton

Opening with rhythmic guitars and pounding drums, the band slows down a little while introducing the vocals into the mix. Going with a more emotional feeling chorus the band adds stuttering guitars on top before getting into a pop hook. Slowing down on the bridge repeating the opening of the band uses high-pitched guitars and electronic effects before ending with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about going down a hole and feeling like something is missing  to keep you up.

What I like about this song are the rawer focused vocals with are combined with more pop sensible hooks, reminding me of bands like Real Friends.  

Can You Hear Me Calling-Flash Forward

Can You Hear Me Calling-Flash Forward

Starting with slow guitars and calm vocals the song slowly works up to louder vocals with the same rhythmic instrumentation. As, more instruments are added the are gone just as quickly to go to the second verse. Going with the same calmed as the first verse this one also slowly flows back to the louder chorus. This chorus is stretched to end the song.

Lyrically the song seems to tell the story of a stranded refugee, calling out for help.

What I like about this song is the calmed and warmed with which this serious topic is brought to our attention.
