da22 intrigue with debut single ‘callingallcars’

Here is an energetic single to greet our ears so nicely from da22 as they smash through on ‘callingallcars‘.

Inspired by a misheard lyric, da22 (Dead At Twenty Two) explores existentialism in modern youth. In 2020, friends Sebastian Quintero, Destin Johnson, Ryan Denis, and Christian Carcamo formed the American alternative group, marking its debut with the single ‘callingallcars‘- a look into different perspectives and misinterpreted situations. This is a punk rock song that hits all the heights here.

“While all four of us are obsessed with the immediate captivity of a really obvious pop hook, I have an affinity for everything to the left of that.” says da22’s frontman Quintero. “The intensity of distortion, the ambiguity of an indefinable tempo or melody; traits perfected by the likes of Brian Eno and Sigur Rós, are ones I greatly admire. The marriage of both notions has always intrigued me. I think ‘callingallcars’ is a testament to that, which is why we went with it first.”

callingallcars‘ is a fun song that certainly jumps the heart into speeding off into the night. The power and skill here musically from da22 is a marvel to lock our ears onto like a comfy pair of headphones.

Missouri band Systems End smash the doors down on excellent ‘Wonder’

Systems End rock in with their new fiery single called ‘Wonder‘.

Two brothers, Nick and Mike Wachter, formed the band just two weeks before entering the studio to record their debut EP, ‘Dweller Series‘, in early 2020. They grew up together in rural eastern Missouri and have been playing music together for 13 years. They know each other well and this is shown up in their music. They play so tight and the years of practice and knowing what each other is doing, shines so bright.

Life makes you wonder sometimes and the journey can possibly cause you to overthink which isn’t good. You just want life to be simple and a happy place. I love how passionate the band are and the powerful guitars and smashing drums, morphs this song to a high level.

Taken off the new 3 track EP called ‘Dweller Series’, this is a powerful entry into the rock music world. The vocals are so strong and this is a band that must be awesome while performing live on stage. ‘Wonder‘ is a smashing single that adds value to the Alt-Rock scene in 2020.
