Release Radar #67

The releases are lined-up once again, let’s dive in!

You’re Not Special, Babe – Orla Gartland

Opening with vocal effects and slow beats, the song slowly adds piano and electronic beats. The chorus adds guitar to the mix as well as louder vocals. Going back to the beats on the second verse the song keeps a lo-fi vibe, with energized choruses. synths are featured on the bridge supporting faster vocal flows. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about heartbreak and how we all go through it. 

What I like about this song is overall flow and dreamy feel on the song. 

Walk over My Grave – Yours Truly

Kicking of with loud guitars, energetic vocals and pounding drums, the song only slows down a little on the first verse but quickly kicks it up again for the chorus. The second verse keeps its energy, and mixes some vocal effects in, the song gets a little dreamy on the bridge, before kicking of with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about heartbreak, failed relationships and emotional struggles.

What I like about this song is the energy, its fast, loud and catchy in other words perfect pop punk.

OMG He’s In The House – Two Year Break

Opening with distorted guitar and synths, gets more rhythmic on the first verse. Going with louder guitars and drums on the chorus, the electronic effects toned down. The second verse goes much the same as the first and flows to the same style chorus. Vocal effects and other electronics are added on the bridge. Before, the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about emotional struggles and uses a haunting as a metaphor for it.

What I like about this song is the use of electronics, I always like it when synths are involved and in the case it really fits the mood of the song.

Anything – With Confidence

Starting of with distorted guitars and vocals, the band quickly adds drums and electronic effects to the mix. Going faster on the chorus the song keeps its upbeat vibe. The second verse flows with the chorus and changes back to it quickly. Going for a spoken word vibe on the bridge, the instrumentation is striped down. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about feeling dead-inside and longing to feel anything.  

What I like about this song is how the up-beat feel contrast with its dark subject matter.

Caffeine Dreams – Lonely Avenue

Kicking of with vocals and distorted guitars, before quickly adding the drums. The song gives no time to breath and goes right for the chorus. The second verse gets more rhythmic but blasts to the chorus just as fast. The bridge seems to consists of a lengthened chorus and also mark the end of the song.  

Lyrically the song talks about different feeling and trying to stay awake using caffeine.

What I like about this song is just the overall pop punk feel and its energy.
