Release Radar #86

It’s time for another release radar, let’s see what in sights this week.

Where to go from here – Lights Out

Opening with rhythmic guitars the song quickly adds drums and vocals into the mix. The song quickly flows into its pop style hook on the chorus before introducing a more drum driven verse. The second chorus is introduced in the same way as the first one. The songs bridge follows much of the same structure as the chorus and feels like an extra part of it. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about things being down and the protagonist asking themselves where to go from here.

What I like about this song is the hook that is featured on the chorus.

Scream- Bronnie

Starting with electronic sounding beats and Bronnie her vocals, the band quickly adds regular drums to the mix and goes all out with its guitar and drum on the chorus. The second verse punches forward and adds more of the traditional instrumentals into the second chorus. The bridge goes with an instrumental section before Bronnie her vocals are added back with a short acoustic break. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song seems to partly talk about being in love, but also the conflicting feelings of the protagonist with the whole concept.

What I like about this song is the powerful feel of the chorus which just hooks you in.

Perfect Blue – Softcult

Opening with ambient noise before introducing some dreamy guitars, the vocals quickly flow into the song. The chorus keeps the songs dreamy vibe but adds more drums into the mix. The song keeps moving forward in the same vibe on the second chorus. The bridge features some vocal effects before the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song feels existential in nature, with the protagonist feeling like someone else.

What I like about this song is the overall dreamy vibe it has, making it the perfect gloomy song for a rainy day.

Threadbare – The Wonder Years

Opening with slow acoustic guitar the song quickly introduces vocals into the mix. The song keeps a slow vibe even on the chorus. The second verse builds up to a little louder chorus, which still retains a soft feel. The third verse follows the same blueprint as the first verse, the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song seems nostalgic, with the protagonist thinking about past times.

What I like about this song is the winter/Christmas vibe I get from it.  

Lost – Drastic Park

Starting of with upbeat guitars, the song quickly adds its vocals. An instrumental shift is introduced before the songs’ chorus. Following the same patter for the second verse, the song goes into the chorus once again. The bridge introduces an emotional high point, before flowing together with the last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about choosing for yourself and cutting out toxic people

What I like about this song is the emotional feel at the end, which really kicks in.
