Generally, palpitations are kind of a bad thing. Except when they come as a courtesy of rhythmically hypnotic guitar melodies such as you will find in Race to Neptune’s single “Will the King?”
Will the King? is just one of the absorbing tracks to feature on the Fort Collins’ based Indie Alt Rock powerhouse’s latest EP “Share My Frequency”. While I would have been quite happy to listen to the melodic guitar progressions for the whole duration, the evocative vocals kick in after an extended prelude and the instrumentals amp up the momentum. This is where you’ll find Race to Neptune’s tendency to experiment with plenty of distortion and effects on the guitars turning Will the King from a cathartically ambient single into a caustically cutting one. The lyrics and vocals also bring plenty of bite to the soundscape.
You can check out Will the King? along with the rest of the EP for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
