Release Radar #89

First week of the new year and that means back to the regular programming, so lets take a look at this weeks new releases.

Closing The Door- Voltage Avenue

Kicking off with upbeat guitars and pounding drums, The song quickly introduces its vocals, working in sync with instruments for the verse, the vocals get an edge at the end of the first chorus. The second verse picks right up keeping with the song’s energy and getting back to the chorus much quicker. The bridge focuses on the vocals again, before stripping the instrumentation back even more. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about leaving the past be and moving on to better things.

What I like about this song is its positive attitude and the edge on the vocal delivery.  

Cabin Fever – Mason Levi

Starting of with quick distorted guitars, the vocals are quickly introduced, flowing with the instrumentation. The chorus itself gets louder and has an angry edge on the first part, before mellowing on the second part. Keeping with the fast nature of the song the second verse flows right back into the chorus. The bridge stretches the chorus out before stripping the instruments, whom return for one last chorus.

Lyrically the song feels darker than you expect from the instrumental sound and deals with mental health and the protagonist losing his sanity.  

What I like about this song is the emo feel the vocals have, which feels different in relation the other parts of the song.


Starting of softly with instrumentation only, the song introduces its almost whispering vocals the song flows forward, introducing louder guitars and vocals halfway through the song contrasts with the calming start of the song, working to almost the end, where the song calms down again.

Lyrically the song doesn’t got much to say, but revolves around heartbreak

What I like about this song is the calming feeling, that changes to sudden outburst halfway into the song and the feel it gives off.  

Have You Ever Been In A Storm Wally? – Outatime

The kicks of almost from the start, with the vocals opening the song before the instruments get their moment to shine, The Chorus quickly kicks in with an upbeat instrumentation, which is complemented by the sharp vocals featured. The second verse feels a little sadder but quickly flows back into another chorus. Going on a more emotional feeling streak with the vocals, gives the bridge its sound. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about being introverted and the burdens it can bring in life.

What I like about this song is its overall feel, while the song flies and has its emotional parts but overall feels positive.  

Attention Junkie- Story Untold ft Dallas   

Opening with some drowned beats, the first vocals, which are sung by Dallas are introduced, the dream beats quickly make place for pounding drums and distorted guitars, which coincides with a change in vocals. The chorus instantly pulls you in with its lyrics. The song flies by on the second verse before introducing the second and last chorus.

Lyrically the protagonist describes his frustration with the attention junkie in question. What I like about this song, is the quick energy behind the song, which made extra powerful with the mellow opening of the song.
