I LISTEN TO MUSIC ALL DAY, SO I MIGHT AS WELL WRITE ABOUT IT. [SINGLE REVIEWS]
Zonezero-Virus: This is a band that has not slowed down since their inception. And this track proves that. Don’t let the name scare you off. LOL!!!! But, this single is a straight banger. The members of Zonezero have studied Nu-metal and Alt-rock from the early 2000s and made it their own. I’m excited to see what the future holds for these guys. If you still aren’t listening to Zonezero, then this track is the perfect time to jump on the bandwagon before it’s too late. Because this is going to be one hell of a ride.
Nothing, Nowhere-Death: This is an act that I listen to every once in a while. After I saw him a few years ago at Spring Fling I became a fan. But this, this is amazing. While I enjoyed the emo-rap feel, I really like the nu-metal/rap-rock feel here. Any song that makes me want to dance and mosh is excellent in my book, and that happens here. It leaves me wondering if this is the direction he is headed now. If it is, I’m all about it. If you are a Fever 333 fan, I’d also recommend checking this out.
Holding Absence-Birdcage: I recently got into this group from Wales. They came up on a playlist I was listening to, and then a few days later this song was released. While it doesn’t have the same bite as the songs I listened to, it still bangs. It has a Movements feel and I can for sure get down with that. It’s the kind of song you will put on after a long day at work. It’s just so calming. It’s the vocals. They are so soothing. And right now, we all could use that.
Glaare-Mirrors: We all have things that catch our eyes when it comes to certain things. When it comes to music, if I see emo, pop-punk, darkwave, synth-pop, or post-punk, I’m bound to check it out. That was the case here when reading the email, I saw two of the genres I mentioned above. I was instantly like, yes, I need to listen to this band. I’m glad I did, as it fits perfectly in Cobra’s world. It’s perfect for a rainy Friday night home while listening to Cigarettes After Sex, Pale Waves, and The Cure. Just be prepared for the haunting vocals, because they are going to pull you in.
Death Ray Romano – latitude, longitude, absolute solitude: This is the debut single from Brian Bonner. He is somewhat local to Columbus, kind of. He lives in Athens, OH but over the years he has become part of the pop-punk/emo scene here. So to hear him finally make music is pretty cool. I really like the lo-fi sound here. It’s a sound I have always enjoyed. The aspect that I really like about this song is he recently recorded it while stuck at home, like so many of us are. And the subject matter is one that is close to home as well. And at a time like this, we need to be aware of that and take care of ourselves and loved ones.
