In my never ending quest to find some new tunes which offer a unique take on older genres, one need look no further than this new track “Doomer” from Melbourne based band Obscura Hail. The group, lead by Sean Conran, take elements of grunge rock and a sludge rock style and pair them effectively with some nice poppier elements and impressive vocal work. I especially love the unique fuzz sound coming through on the guitar throughout the song to give the track some real teeth. You gotta love this one.
Over the last few weeks I’ve found myself immersed in the dark album soon to be released by TV Ghost. They’ve titled the record Disconnect, and In the Red Records will release the album on September 3rd. I think a lot of people are going to be really impressed, especially if they have the patience to let these tracks unfold. On the latest single, there’s a stabbing guitar pulse that ends up providing a rhythm for the track, while the cymbals carefully shake in the background. I think, for me, the most interesting thing about listening to this track is that the band is able to maintain your attention with each track, even though several tunes span over the five-minute mark. Here’s a new one to enjoy.
