Well, ‘I Hate Rock n Roll’ is certainly a bold statement for a title track but hear him out.
Sidney Berthier may have decided to go with shock tactics when it came to naming the track, yet, when it come to the bluesy experimental composition he absolutely knocked it out of the park thanks to his prodigally futuristic style. The up and coming artist created a rhythmically reverb-heavy single which almost flirted with the Shoegaze sound thanks to the crunchy guitars. So, if you could imagine My Bloody Valentine meeting the psychedelic transience of the Doors, you’d come close to getting an idea of Sidney Berthier’s authentically pioneering style. Hopefully his single will inspire more artists to stay away from the revival sound and veer toward contemporary reinvention of the classic.
