I’ll be honest, the tracks found on up and coming artist Brent Beamer’s debut album “In the Tumultuous” aren’t the easiest to listen to. Yet, within the caustic angst of Brent Beamer’s style, there’s plenty of cathartic appeal – only if you find catharses in volatile music of course.
While perfectly polished harmonic vocals may be easy on the ear, it’s incredibly rare for those very same vocals to resonate as human, let alone sincere. But with Brent Beamer’s new album you’re treated to raw, unfiltered emotion.
If you could imagine elements of Post Punk artists such as Magazine combined with contemporary Emo Rap, you’d probably get a good idea of what is waiting for you when you hit play on tracks such as “Fourth of July”. Hate the holiday? Well, now you have a brand-new soundtrack to your contempt.
You can check out Brent Beamer’s single Fourth of July along with the rest of their experimentally disconcerting tracks from their debut album by heading over to Spotify.
