Release Radar #104

Its time for a new release radar, with a one week break there’s a slew of releases to talk about

Bash out – Citizen

Starting of with pounding drums, the song slowly introduces surf type guitars into the mix. The vocals flow together with the melody moving forward into the chorus. The second verse comes by in the same mater. The song continues into an instrumental filled bridge, ending with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about leaving behind those who aren’t good for you.

What I about this song is the more garage rock sound, citizen seems to be going for on this song.

Foxglove – Boston Manor

Opening with the vocals, drums and guitars all at once, the song slowly adds more instruments into the mix. The eerie instrumentation flows into a heavier chorus, taking the dark tones even further. The second verse goes much the same flowing back into the chorus. Going into a breakdown on the bridge, the song ends with one last chorus.    

Lyrically the song is both a love song and describes an internal struggle of the protagonist.

What I like about this song are it’s darker and heavier tones.  

Double Life – Royals ft Two Year Break

Kicking of with both guitars and synths, the song vocals are quickly flowing together with the beats. The chorus goes more into the classic instrumentation. Getting back to the electronic mix on the second verse, the guitars also get more room to shine. The chorus comes around again, before taking the electronic route for the bridge and ending with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about the struggles of living a double live and the toll it takes to not being fully yourself.

What I like about this song is how it gets out the signature sounds of both artist featured.  

Daydream – In Her Own Words

Opening with distorted guitars, drums and vocals quickly follow, goes forward towards the chorus. The second verse follows much of the same pattern as the first, getting back to the chorus in the same way. The bridge remixes the sounds of the chorus and builds towards slow break of the songs momentum. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is mostly a love song

What I like about this song is the 2010s pop punk vibe I get from it.

When You Were Young – Fluorescents (originally by The Killers)

Kicking of with heavy guitars and pounding drums. The vocals are quickly added, the chorus comes around quickly. The second verse keeps the same blueprint and the chorus keeps much the same. The bridge takes things slower slowly putting the spotlights on the instruments and ending with the last chorus

Lyrically the song talks about growing up and the ideals you keep from your youth.

What I like about this song is how it keeps the spirit of the original but puts a pop punk twist on it.
