Many believe that the flame of Rock music has long since smoldered under the vastness and accessibility of modern pop, indie, etc. Ego Kill Talent are here to show us that the flame still burns bright if you know where to look. Turn your ears toward Brazil if you’re yearning for immense drum sounds, heavy guitars and powerful vocals.
Despite the influences from harder rock genres, My Own Deceiver is a versatile single that blends pop sensibility with edgier style. Verses are arranged for easy singing along, even if you only know one word. This is definitely a single that will raise attentiveness at a live show. There’s a respect for classic rock in there as well. You can hear it in the way the song builds dynamically to its climaxes. While modern hardcore enthusiasts will go for full speed and peak volume right out the gate, My Own Deceiver is a track that takes its time and packs a bigger punch for it.
Even if you’re not ready to abandon your posh life of dream pop and folk ballads, there’s a timeless quality to rock music and Ego Kill Talent can dial your mind to a time when you were ready for more energy out of your music. This could be just the gateway you need to break out those guilty pleasure Motley Crue tracks that we both know you love.
