Orlando Florida's are back with their latest release " Euphoric", the release comes from a band who are already tipped as having a heavy yet charmingly appealing sound. It's within this chaos blend of angst ridden harshness bordering on psychotic rock with melodic, hook filled sensibilities that has earned them critical acclaim and radio airplay all across their home country.
Since forming, the band has shared the stage with such notable acts as Jucifer, The Phuss, Black Tusk, Ken Mode, Lo-Pan, Black Cobra, among others. The swift and compact album starts with "It's a Sucker's Game, Kid" which has a drilling into the skull kind of magnetism that blasts out some crunchy vibes straight away. It stomps around with the kind of vocals that make you feel torn apart and inspired to listen to more of the album all at the same time.
"Emmett Brown Has Never Met a Scott That Wasn't Great" rolls in with possibly, the song title of the year award behind it. It has a 90's calm before the storm kind of introduction that blends, into a thundering off-key harmony splatter that is just what you need to get over that Monday feeling or a bad day.
"Benaquyl" grooves in next with melodies that are very of influence, rich with insomnia based lyrics it's a quick punchy number that smoothly paves the way for yet another greatly titled track. "Have I Told You Lately That I Loathe You" which could be taken as a quirkily mimic on romance, the road side biker, sludge track is smouldering in blisteringly infectious riffs.
By the time the album reaches "The Dirtiest Dream Jobs" more of the band's influential anger and attitude is full force and compelling. The album is so packed with these stomping stoner sludge tunes with an almost industrial punchy punk edge, which makes it - just excellent.
Ending with album with "Bitches Hate Misogyny" which rounds off the album with a final blast of high octane tone and powerful volume, this band truly understands the art of writing a good memorable song.The album is a short but it's entertaining blend of sludge and noise rock that is sure to appeal to fans of bands such as The Melvins, Ken Mode and Helmet. The album is due to be released on digital and vinyl formats.
