Superterranea – Replicant: The Artist Who Created an Aural Flood with His Synthwave Hit

Describing any track as a masterpiece always feels a little exaggerative, yet, I’m lost for what else I would call an electrically arrestive hit which resonates like nothing that you’ve ever heard before.

While I’ve spent a fair amount of time listening to the synth pioneers create their own brands of EDM, the way that Superterranea lay down their synth lines in Replicant allows you to feel that you’ve just undergone your very own epic adventure.

Spacey sonic hits aren’t exactly rare but Superterrenea puts a distinctive twist on Replicant, so it doesn’t feel all too War of the Worlds. With the same amount of experimentalism as you would enjoy from a Bjork track, Superterranea brings Synth-driven soundscapes into an anthemic Rock arena. You’ll need very little persuasion to crank up the volume and envelop yourself in the visceral, slightly ominous soundscape as it reverberates through you.

Simply put, Replicant makes the Arctic Monkey’s synth dabbling with their latest album sound positively amateur. And while the vocals don’t get showcased all too much, they still bring a great dynamic to the sound, as no matter how many effects are laden on the vocals, the power doesn’t fail to captivate you. The vocals from Jessica Blaise Ward were fairly reminiscent from what you can expect from Shiny Toy Guns and Yeah Yeah Yeahs; and there definitely isn’t enough of that on the contemporary soundwaves.

The Alchemy Live Up to Their Name with their Single “Intertwined”

Even from the first verse of the up and coming Rock band’s standout single “Intertwined” from their debut self-titled album it becomes immediately obvious just how they came up with the name ‘the Alchemy’.

With Intertwined the East Sussex, UK based 4-piece powerhouse created a potently powerful sound which carries a certain amount of reminiscence to bands such as Incubus with the plaintive lyrics resting over the melodic Rock track. Yet, the layers of electronic effect give the Alchemy’s sound a slight pop feel. Perhaps the most notable element in Intertwined was the fact that even though the emotive Rock single got the Pop style production, the raw and authentic Indie feel to the sound was never lost.
