Punk angst and poetic poignancy sit hand in hand in up and coming Alt Rock artist Under Stolen Skies’ debut single “State of I”.
Any fans of Rage Against the Machine’s high-octane all-consuming energy will definitely appreciate the experimentally absorbing Nu Metal single. And yes, the single comes with the Morello-style improvised intricate guitar breakdowns which will make your synapses feel suitably rearranged.
Reminiscences aside, Under Stolen Skies’ sound could never have been born through mere assimilation. The urgency, the authenticity, and the sheer performative conviction well and truly put them in a league of their own.
The Canadian artist has been firmly affixed to our radar after hearing State of I, you’ll undoubtedly follow suit once you get a taste of just how fresh their sound is.
