Dom Shaq – All I Am: Defiantly Visceral Alt Rock

Alt-Rock solo artist Dom Shaq is set to release their bruisingly evocative single All I Am, the intimate yet intense passion projected into the soundscape definitely didn’t fail to resonate. The sheer determination, resilience and unapologetic candidness of All I Am make the vocals as colossal as the sonically tight instrumentals grinding their way through the distortion in the sweet mix of cold gritty Rock & Pop Punk.

For me, like many others, the mark of an unforgettable track is one which allows your breath to quicken in synergy with the progressions and leaves you with visceral emotion swelling beneath your rib cage. All I Am does all of that and more. I’m not crying, you are.

You can check out Dom Shaq’s single All I Am for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud from the date of release on September 4th. In the meantime, you can check out their equally as enrapturing singles.

Homecoming has released their punchiest Indie Pop Punk single to date with the release of “Prime”

Pop Punk, Post Hardcore and Indie Rock all entwine in the explosively adrenalizing recently released single “Prime” from breaking San Antonio-based artist Homecoming.

They’ve gone right back to the roots of Emo and Pop-Punk with the bouncing anthemic choruses which stand as a testament to the production standard of Prime. Yet Homecoming played a bit of Machiavellian trick as they allowed the harmonically magnetic vocals to be interrupted by the raw screamo lyrics. The seismic shift in energy definitely wasn’t expected. Yet, it made the sticky-sweet choruses which followed even more absorbing.

No review of Prime would be complete without mentioning the guitar which borrows Indie Rock nuances to ensure that the track isn’t just a heavy-hitter. There’s also a smorgasbord of deftly intricate distinction within their playing style to gorge upon.
