There’s little room to wonder why so many people have jumped on the pioneering work of Colorado-based up and coming Alt Rock duo Project Vela.
If you haven’t already been introduced to their sound, their latest single “Watch You Leave” is the perfect introduction. The single kicks off with a contemporary yet cinematic Synth Pop prelude before introducing arrestive layers of stylistic Alt Rock complete with semi-orchestral swells.
Project Vela made the momentum of Watch You Leave constantly in flux, so you’ll get plenty of rhythmic reminders of just how immersive the soundscape is. The instrumental melodicism and vocal harmonies switch to high-octane riffs in a chaotically concordant style which you definitely won’t be accustomed to.
Fans of Linkin Park, Bring Me the Horizon, Enter Shikari, and Incubus will all find plenty to love about Watch You Leave.
