Faunshead – Come Wake Me Up: Ethereally Dark Experimental Indie

LA Rock duo Faunshead’s recently released single “Come Wake Me Up” is a salaciously ominous soundscape which any fans of dark Indie Rock will want on their playlists.

If you could imagine what Marilyn Manson would sound like if he adopted a fuzzy, grungy, melodic Indie approach to his music, you’d get a good idea of Faunshead’s nuanced distinctive style.

With Come Wake Me Up, the US artist created a sublime feat of Alt Rock through the use of cavernous drum rolls, growling ethereal vocals and inventive blasts of synth. But around the experimentalism, they weaved in a massive chorus which is extremely efficacious in snaring you into a feat of rhythmic euphoria. Faunshead’s sound feels like it has already has a home on Mike Patton’s Ipecac record label.

You can check out Come Wake Me Up for yourselves by heading over to Spotify. Or, you can witness the aural alchemy in the making with the live video via YouTube.

Vlad In Tears – Great Goth Almighty!

Even before you read anything about the wonderfully titled Vlad In Tears you could have a decent stab at the fact that they hail from Europe, German even and you might even be confident enough to suggest Berlin. And you would be right. There is something in their sound which seems to scream “Old World” and those dark corners which sit perpetually across some of its oldest cities.

If the bands name seem to suggest something aimed at the black clad, wannabe pagans who still have visions of relocating to Sunnydale and hanging around with Buffy and the gang, I am most happy to report that Vlad In Tears rise far above such first impressions. Give the music a spin and you find yourself in a dark and emotive alt-rock soundscape. Even the term gothic, as a genre at least, is slightly amiss here, for it neither fits in with the old-school post-punk movement or the metal sub-genre it has since become. If it is gothic at all it is more in the literary sense, painting dark mystique, broken romanticism and haunted emotions across its musical canvas.

Plastic: Another Monster Hit From The English Duo Black Fun Surgery

If you want to get the feel of what good music sounds like, then Black Fun Surgery’s latest hit- Plastic is the music to listen to. What can I say? This track is simply off the hook. For music lovers who love a combination of hard rock and electronica, you wouldn’t go wrong to listen to this fine tune that is currently rocking the airwaves. Yes, there are good music but “Plastic” by Black Fun Surgery beats them all.

Although this amazing electro Goth duo have stayed away from the music scene for quite some years now. They make a resounding comeback with this tune that promises to give music lovers that tingling feeling they wouldn’t want to recover from.

If you think the lyrics to this incredible song was lit, wait till you listen to the crazy beat that accompanies this fine music. You will simply be left breathless by the magical production that went into this track. Yes, the group black fun surgery is an indie group looking for the breakthrough to the big stages, but with this monster hit- Plastic, they have simply made a statement that they are ready for the top.

While their single Spectralia has success in 2016, Plastic promises to surpass their previous milestone. And with many radio stations currently airing this scintillating track, it wouldn’t be long before Plastic start topping popular charts. If you love energy in a music, then this is the one for you. The energy in this music is on a whole new level.

According to the duo, Plastic is a song inspired by a fake world where they feel the desire to celebrate their uniqueness through music. The lyrics of this hit track is a testament to the message they want to send out there. While Electro Goth is a very popular genre in Germany, Black Fun Surgery have owned this genre and taking things up a notch with their latest track “Plastic.” Are you having a bad day and looking for a track to burst the adrenaline in you? Instead of sliding in some boring old track, why not revel in the euphoria of Plastic? Without mincing words, Plastic is the ultimate mood changer. Slide in this tune and thank me later.

Like I said earlier, this music is currently enjoying massive airplay. This explains why it has earned its place as number 7 on the ReverbNation UK’s electronica chart.
