Mosa – Foaming at the Mouth: Pensively Poised Post-Rock

“Foaming at the Mouth” is the third single to be released by alternative artist Mosa which comes with a jarring amount of pensive emotion. Whether it hits you through the melodically ambient instrumental progressions, Mosa’s reflectively poised vocals, or the lyrics, you’re going to feel bruised.

With inspiration for their sound coming everywhere from Tom Waits to Justin Vernon, there’s a real sense that the single was born through true expression rather than just going through the motions of production. With elements of Post-Rock, Darkwave, and Indie within the chilling soundscape, a contemporary stylistic sound was easily achieved. Yet, there are enough familiar elements to latch onto to transform listening to Foaming at the Mouth into a cathartically restorative experience.

From the first verse, I knew I wouldn’t get to the outro dry-eyed. Mosa definitely didn’t let me down.

Vidaus – Mother and Sister: Pensively Sublime Shoegaze Indie

“Mother and Sister” is just one of the hauntingly stunning singles found on Vidaus’ second album “Don’t Check My Arms, Pt. 1”.

The sublime mix of Indie, Post Punk, and Shoegaze comes together in an ambiently pensive arrangement creating the perfect lucid platform for the softly versed vocals to bleed into.

The light guitar progressions match the melancholic sting of the lyrics as they synergistically offer a bleak catharsis.  Even though Mother and Sister is a dark track, there’s still a warmth within its concordance making the single incredibly distinctive. But it’s safe to say that for any fans of the Verve, this up and coming artist should already be on your radar.

You can check out Mother and Sister along with their second album via Spotify.
