If you’re always looking for the latest evolutions in Alt Rock, that’s exactly what you’ll find in the latest genre-mashing single “Crimson Skies” from the NYC-based trio The Final Sound.
While you’ll find plenty of elements which will drive you right back to the golden era of Shoegaze and Post Punk, you’ll also appreciate the contemporary Alt Rock drive and ingenuity which has been put behind the single.
Fans of Joy Division, the Cure, and Depeche Mode definitely shouldn’t hang around in placing the Final Sound on their radar. Their ability to capture the atmospherics of Post Punk and infuse it into a contemporary veracious single set the Final Sound apart with perceptible distinction. Needless to say, it’s accessible from the first hit, which may have a lot to do with how much synergy is found in the seamlessly tight instrumental arrangement.
