If you missed the waves which NYC artist Takeover made this year with their sunny, eccentric EP “Starr Street”, it’s our pleasure to introduce the vibrantly melodic feat of Alt Rock.
The first track “Picturesque” is the perfect introduction to their angsty romantic edge. If you could imagine what the Beach Boys would sound like if they put more scuzz on their guitars and more bite behind their vocals, you’d get a good idea of what’s on offer.
There’s also a slight hint of 00s Emo Rock to Picturesque, but make no mistakes, Takeover is a band who carry a serious stylistic nuanced sound despite the slightly rough Garage Rock tonality. It’s a genre smorgasbord which you’re definitely going to want to sink your teeth into.
You can check out Picturesque for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
