Exclusive Review: Dearbones – “Feed The Birds” Single

Since emerging onto the scene in 2017, Massachusetts quartet Dearbones began gaining an insatiable following with their highly energetic indie/post-hardcore signature sound and visually captivating live shows. And on Halloween of this year in 2020, the band dropped a track that would continue to prove that their presence is a massive one with the release of “Feed The Birds.”

Accompanied by a charismatic official music video, Dearbones grabs the listener by the throat and dares you to ask them to loosen the grip. The edge-of-your-seat intro is a thrust of anticipation with a buildup that is bound to heighten the blood pressure just a little, and once the song kicks into high gear, all bets are off. With a dueling single picking and full chord blast technique, the soaring guitar progressions and melodies on this track are furious, unrelenting and unwavering in its execution. Adding to the fury is a super tight-knit rhythm section with a host of drum progressions and bass lines that cruise through each measure diligently to tie all the energy together; giving off a presence that is highly contagious and dynamically crafty.

Frank Chuili’s vocals are packed full of violent punches and at the same time provide an atmospheric and anthemic aura. With neurotic screams and lyrical outbursts that bring a plethora of heavy rawness to the band’s authenticity, the clean cut and melody driven chorus really adds a brilliant finishing touch to everything else that surrounds it. Altogether, all four members bring crucial components to this track and equally serve major importance to the band’s entirety. “Feed The Birds” is the perfect track to truly hear how dynamic and talented these musicians are both individually and collectively. This anchor single is not only effective, but also pivotal to the band as well granted this song definitely raises the bar very high for any subsequent release – it’s gonna be a tough track to follow, but Dearbones continues to prove their worth with every song they put together. So we have no doubt they will continue to slay their way to the top. “Feed The Birds” is available now on YouTube, Social Media and several digital music streaming platforms.

Neoborn Caveman – “12 Days of Love” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Neoborn Caveman has graced our platform before. And the more we get to know him, the more versatility of his musical stature comes to light. His single “12 Ways of Love” is definitely a rollercoaster ride of one of his many angles of multifaceted goodness that truly shines on a path that bridges the gap between originality and familiarity; giving us even more insight into NC‘s soundscapes and artistic merit.

Utilizing a more electronically infused signature sound, from beginning to end, NC‘s vocals resonate both lyrically and rhythmically parallel. And that’s what makes this song truly unique – we get to indulge into NC‘s vocal abilities in ways that are multilayered with standouts of their own.

The usage of EDM is very anthemic and organized. Everything flows melodically much like his other material, but, “12 Ways of Love” is a modern treat for the ears that brings forth a futuristic sound that is also comprised of many familiar vocal melody structuring. And that’s another facet of this song – structuring. We get genre-bending elements that are surprising but still smoothly transitioned in a way that doesn’t throw the song off. Oh, and the subtlety in NC‘s voice manages to sustain perfectly alongside his musical character. The many elements used to suspend every measure of this song is chosen wisely and crafted carefully. This song has twists and turns, but never strays from its actual foundation that the track starts with. “12 Ways Of love” is one big dose of versatility with its own sense of sweetness, splendor and charm all doused in one electronic package of compelling production value.

“12 Ways of Love” releases August 31st and will be available everywhere including all digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Phillip Foxley – “I’ll Try ‘Till I Die” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Phillip Foxley’s ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die’

I never thought I’d see a clean cut man of Phillip Foxley‘s age performing some of my favorite Rock, Punk and Indie styles. His long lengthy 29-track album, ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die,’ is an anthemic collection of songs with crunchy guitar, dynamic leads and vocal melodies that tie it all together into one rockin’ package; and it’s anything but a disappointment.

After releasing a vast array of singles, this debut album, though a long journey of a listen, is worth every listen. Opening track “I’ve Forgotten Something Else!” is an explosive and in-your-face catchy track with some of the best guitar progressions and vocal melody combinations that have been put together in this era. Phillip is not just another musician searching for that next groundbreaking sound that has over theatrical antics with post production; it’s good old plug-in-and-play, writing effective songs, and just going for it. His sound is reminiscent of classic 90s/2000s bands like Saves The Day, Ramones and The Suicide Machines. You hear this right off the bat, he’s not after anything innovative or seeking that next big thing, he just wants to write songs that are fun-filled, energetic and catchy enough to draw you in to his flavorful Rock sound.

Now again, there’s 29 tracks to choose from. While they all maintain consistency, each track offers new angles to Phillip‘s talent; adding in feature artists, instrumentals and different tastes of his signature sound and stylization. His piano track “Promises” is beautifully crafted with waves of backup vocals, gorgeous string arrangements and is hauntingly visceral from the very first listen. This album, literally, has something for everyone and offers up an anthemic sound that is comprised of multifaceted textures and versatile measures. It’s just one of many songs that will surprise you, but still fit among the rest of the album’s content.

Phillip Foxley is quite a find, and anyone that can resonate with the late 80s and 90s Rock sound with classic Emo and Indie flavors will absolutely fall head over heals with this record. It’s currently available on several platforms and we can’t stress enough how much we recommend picking this one up.
