Release Radar #94

Its Friday once again, so lets take a look at five new releases

Debbie Downer –LØLØ ft Maggie Lindeman

Starting with slow distorted guitar, the song quickly adds drums and vocals into the mix. With catchy and alternating instrumentals get the first verse flowing into the first chorus, the chorus is the catchiest part, where Maggie and LØLØ share the vocals. The second verse is shorter and quickly gets back to the chorus. The bridge consists of a break in the chorus which is lengthened to until the end of the song.

Lyrically the song seems to be a description of LØLØ and Maggie’s experiences, with assumptions about them.

What I like about this song is the quick paced nature of the song combined with the catchy chorus. 

Push Comes To Shove-Karvel

Kicking of with sludgy guitars and pounding drums, the song quickly introduces its haunting vocals. The chorus introduces stuttering guitars and keeps with the vocals. Instrumentals introduce the second verse which flows forward in the same way. The chorus adds its stuttering guitars again, giving an extra push to the vocals. A new instrumental part is added, this time introducing a much slower bridge, which almost feels like an end of the song, but the band got one last chorus, giving It their all and slowly getting back to instrumentals slowly ending the song.

Lyrically the song is filled with social commentary and about breaking the mold

What I like about this song is the haunting feeling that is present throughout the song.

Celebrity Skin- Emma Blackery ft Bronnie (originally by Hole)

Starting with distorted guitars, Emma her vocals are introduced almost immediately, getting to the first chorus quickly Bronnie her vocals are also added. The second verse is carried by Bronnie, with the third being shared by both. The third chorus goes much the same, with the bridge being shared again. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is about the rise and fall of celebrities, and the price of fame for those who are used by the machine.

What I like about this song is how true it stayed to the original while still being fresh, with the production feeling a cleaner and Emma and Bronnie mixing in their distinctive vocals styles in.   

Don’t Fall In Love With Me – Story Untold

Opening with pounding drums and distorted guitars, the vocals have a slight electronic effect to them. The chorus removes the effects but keeps the drum and guitars as its instrumentation. The second verse brings back the effects, slowly building back to the chorus. The bridge takes things to an instrumental level, before the vocals are re-introduced and the instruments are slowly stripped away.

Lyrically the song’s protagonist is warning everyone that they are too broken to be loved.

What I like about this song is the old-school Myspace/Neon pop feel it has.

False Start – Outatime! Ft Nick Thompson

Kicking of with distorted guitars and rhythmic drums, the songs vocals are added quickly flowing into the chorus, which takes things more energetic. The second chorus gets a slower, making the second chorus kick in louder. The bridge is introduced by an instrumental break, and adds some vocal effects, the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about being left behind and ranting at those who are arrogant

What I like about this song is the upbeat and catchy nature of the song, giving it a classic pop punk feel.
