A sonic experiment at it’s finest, taking you on a crazy journey through their evergrowing change of sound is Excellent Jacket’s new anthology ‘’1000 eyes’’. It embarks on a discovery of unique styles, feeding of a wide range of human emotions.
Throughout you’re taken on a rollercoaster of ups and downs through a series of sounds that create short, poignant yet catchy tracks.
Some are mysterious and dark others have a more joyful element. There is a combination of sadness, confusion, and happiness and the way that in every single song it gives off a different feeling through the use of high and low tempos, it’s creative and talented.
Without even having to use vocals, they’ve managed to create something for the listeners solidly based on sound taking them through an absolute whirlwind of emotion. With the first few tracks sounding like a horror game theme tune, to infiltrate panic and confusion, with a heart-racing beat and thrilling laughs.
Excellent Jacket have created a piece of art, it’s something that gets you hooked and proves that you don’t always have to have vocals to make an excellent album.
Be sure to check it out, you can listen to the album here on soundcloud.
