Small Planets Release New Indie Track “Drowning”

With their high energy, driving rhythms and dark tones Small Planets present their new track “Drowning” which features woven melodies, an expressive vocal and a rich blend of effects in a captivating atmosphere. With a vocal melody that is simplistic, yet strong, and a set of deep and thought provoking lyrics, this song skilfully expresses a place of darkness through a sound which is actually captivating and sonorous with flowing harmonies and guitar effects. Apart from its vibrant and communicative performance element the music also features an interesting blend between atmospheric synthesiser sounds, a steady driving beat and an element of diluted rock blending in convincingly.

Apart from it’s strong character, the song truly shows Small Planet’s potential as a very creative group with a clear vision. These guys know how to enhance their music with the right amount of effects and create a sonic environment which suits the mood for the lyrics through a distinctive sound. Although very conscious of the dark subject matter Small Planets manage to mould their sound to remain exciting and driving throughout with an element of etherial melodies which truly enhance the meaning behind the song.

Slaves Supporters GENERATION Release Debut EP ‘Who Loves This Generation’

Anyone who misses high-energy rock being on top needs to open their ears and join the mayhem that is Generation. Off of their debut EP is I Like It, a track that doesn’t waste time letting you know what you’re in for and pulls you into a wild ride of quick, sloppy rock that sounds fresh out of your neighborhood’s finest garage. With some socio-political overtones borrowed from punk ancestry and just enough transduction on the vocals to add a lo-fi tinge, Generation doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel to know how to get it turning.

I Like It sounds like a leather jacket, and if that description alone doesn’t make you want to listen, you should be looking somewhere else for your music. This isn’t something meant for arenas or ballrooms, but ballroom bashes have made it further from more humble beginnings. It’s always wonderful to know that no matter how much technology changes and the industry evolves, there are always groups like Generation to remind us how fun music can be if we just remember to rock out once in a while. In other words…I like it.
