The devil is in the visceral detail in Tatum Quinn’s latest alt-rock unveiling, Sell Your Soul

The price was evidently right in Tatum Quinn’s latest quintessential feat of viscerally jarring alt-rock “Sell Your Soul”. The arrestingly torrid and industrially mechanised track perfectly captures the frustration that becomes all-consuming in the presence of something that you would do anything for – pressing self-destruct and tearing apart the fabric of your reality not off the table.

The lyrics (Ring his phone just to check if the devil is home) are just as efficacious as the post-rock-meets-pop-hook instrumentals and Quinn’s hell-hath-no-fury vocals at depicting the kind of psyche storms that are enough to make you swear off wanting for good. Sell Your Soul seriously gives Chase & Status’ Let You Go’ a run for its money in terms of gravitas and intensity.

Sell Your Soul is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link.

Sandro Cuzzetto – Sign of the Times: Inimitably eccentric progressive psych-rock

Sandro Cuzzetto

Ahead of the release of his 2022 EP, Canadian songwriter and experimentalist, Sandro Cuzzetto, released the boundary-breaking title single, Sign of the Times. I’m rarely left stuck for words, but this consistently evolving melting pot of contrasting texture and tone that lets traditional time signatures fall by the wayside left me speechless.

With the dirty disco grooves, polyphonic scores, indie psych melodies, uplifting Enya vibes, effect-laden vocals and general obscurity, Sign of the Times walks a thin line between insanity and ingenuity but we’re here for it. This bop-worthy track succeeds where so many fail when it comes to offering inimitably vibrant soul.

Check out Sandro Cuzzetto for yourselves via SoundCloud.
