Release Radar #69

This week was filled with releases and I got five lined-up for you again!

Bubblegum – Those Who Dream

Opening with fast guitars and electronic effects, the song blasting vocals are quickly added. The end of the first verse takes it slower before going in to the chorus. Kicking it up on the chorus with guitars gives a contrast with the slower intro. Going with the same blue print on the second verse, the chorus is introduced in the same way. With a bridge consisting of spoken word and electronics the band re-introduces their last chorus, which features the same electronic effects.

Lyrically the song describes a breakup and the protagonist struggles to deal with it.

What I like about this song are the use of electronic and the overall flow, although it did give me a “Waterparks” vibe.  

Another Day -Little Us

Kicking of with pounding drums and atmospheric effects, the song slowly adds piano and distorted guitars. The vocals are added lastly. The chorus instrumentation focuses on the guitars and drums, and adds louder vocals. Giving the same feel on the second verse the song quickly is back at its chorus. The bridge changes things up and consists of guitar solos, stuttering guitars and finally vocals. The song ends with the same piano that was heard in the opening

Lyrically the song talks about relationship struggles and being at that point where you are just done with everything.

What I like about this song are the atmospheric effects, and the overall instrumentals.  

Hard Habit – Tash

Opening with slow guitars before adding Tara her haunting vocals, the song keeps with its darker vibe on the chorus and flows back to the second verse with the same instrumentation. The instrumentation does change on the second verse where louder guitar is added and Tara her vocals also get more force behind them. This last chorus marks the end of the song.

Lyrically the song talks about struggles with bad Habits, but also the struggle to keep the good once.  

What I like about this song is the dreamy vibe and Tara her vocal performance.  

Right Fit – Snow Coats

Starting of with acoustic guitar and vocals, the song gets up to speed and adds drums to the mix. The chorus instrumentation is carried by the drums and it takes things to a louder level than the rest of the song. Going back to the soft side on the second verse makes the next chorus sound even louder. The bridge gets more on the softer side and flows into an instrumental section. The song ends with a partly stripped chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about staying true to yourself and not changing for someone to be the right fit.

What I like about this song is the lyrical content and how the song alternates with its loud and soft parts.

Old Enough 2 Die – Heart Attack Man

Kicking of with pounding drums and fuzzy guitars, the song quickly adds its vocals. The chorus consists of an instrumental section and the song continues with it’s next verse. Repeating the pattern on the second chorus, the song ends with on last section which feels more like the real chorus.  

Lyrically the song describes a dark scenario in which a father kills both his wife and daughter.   What I like about this song is the dark emotional feel that goes radiates throughout the song.
