Indiana Heights put a modernist spin on Prog Rock-Fusion with “In the Thick of Things”

Indiana Heights

Indiana Heights treated us to a preview of forthcoming single In the Thick of Things which offers a modernist Avant-Garde spin on time-old tones.

There may be a serious amount of pioneering complexity within In the Thick of Things, but the Boston-based Prog Rock-Fusion 5-piece succeeded in making it alluringly accessible from the first hit.

With the bendy throbs of the bass, the eccentricity of the Jazzy piano progressions and the ardent passion which blasts from the sax, In the Thick of Things could only be described as mesmeric and insane in equal measure.

A frenetic Jim Jones-esque energy runs through the Jazzy Funk-laden ensemble – especially with the vocals – but the soundscape remains radio-ready all the same.

You can check out Indiana Heights via Spotify.

Nick Sargentson – Possessive: Sticky-Sweet Blues Funk-laced Pop Rock

Nick Sargentson

Don’t be surprised if you feel your heart reposition itself in your throat as you’re wrapped up in the sticky sweet melodies in Nick Sargentson’s upcoming single “Possessive”.

Possessive is just one of the singles which feature on the Melbourne-based singer songwriter’s debut EP which is due for release on 20th March 2020.

If you can imagine Eddie Vedder’s seductive vocal evocative appeal mixed with nuanced vocal harmonics you’d expect from the likes of Adam Levine and Shawn Mendes, you’ll be able to get an idea of what’s on offer through Possessive.

The track simply oozes homegrown soul. Yet, despite the humble nature of the track, there’s a perceptible innovative talent which would more than justify an ego; the self-taught guitarist definitely didn’t hold back when it came to the riffs in Possessive.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Possessive, in the meantime, you can check out the artist’s earlier releases via SoundCloud.

Wine Morals’ Self-Titled Track is the Intellectually Orchestrated Indie Funk Rock Track You Never Knew You Needed

I knew that the probability of liking a track by a band who go by the name of Wine Morals would be high, but what I could have never anticipated is the pure raucous energy that the band poured into their eclectic soundscape with their self-titled single “Wine Morals”.

The single is just one of the tracks to feature on the Indie Funk Rock band’s 2018 release “Shake the Glass” which is sure to leave you thirsty for more of their intellectually orchestrated individualistic expression. There is a palpable sense that the powerhouse of musicians had fun pouring the high-octane experimental antagonism into the single. Which is just one of the reasons it’s impossible to allow Wine Morals to fade to a close without being enamoured by their raw gritty charisma which feeds into the seamlessly produced track.

You can check out the Wine Morals’ latest single for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.
