DARMA ‘Gloom’ EP

The Manchester-based trio DARMA, have released their new EP ‘Gloom’. The band comprised of Harry Corbett (vocals), Lloyd Whitehead (bass), and Issac Whitehead (drums), give a new meaning to the term garage rock. The band themselves have coined the phrase “loudquietheavypop” to more accurately describe their sonic sound. Singled out by Louder Than War as one of the most energetic young bands around, DARMA have supported the likes of Primal Scream, Dinosaur Pile Up, and fellow Mancunians The 1975 and Ist Ist, DARMA have had a busy 2018, playing shows at Sound City (Liverpool), Tramlines (Sheffield) and the Manchester Apollo for Radio X. 

‘Gloom’ is a searing torpedo ready to demolish your ears in feisty dark grunge, glorious melodies and alternative rock mania. The rich blend of tracks is first rate as they slither between blissfully melodic and frenzy effortlessly to pack in something for everyone. From the first gritty strike in ‘Miasma’ something clicks. A thrilling notion that this band have something special sparks a fire in your belly as crashing guitars throttle through punchy drum whacks and raspy attitude driven vocals. Dark melodies melt with a bubbling texture into your ears as this trio surge kinetic adrenaline into each and every track.The bombarding assault of  ‘Procrasturbator’ follows. These tracks are perfect for that mosh pit frenzy as Corbett screams over a hyperactive backdrop filled with lacerating sharp guitars, rumbling bass and bombarding drums. This is one heck of a track. ‘Hey, You’ cools the tone of the EP with a melancholic sweet melody which glides mournfully over a hypnotic drum and bass rhythm while raw guitar-strikes thud throughout. Anthemic choruses are what this trio do well and this track in particular was designed for the mass sing-along live show display. Their muscular rock keeps the tracks from becoming soppy and maintains a stomp and edge to their melodic swoon. Its all blistering frenzy until ‘Interlude’ brings a chilled dreamy “breather” to the EP as twinkling guitars accompany soft vocal coos. Even during this little rest DARMA entwine some distortion at the end to keep us all alert for the ground shaking final track ‘You’re Always Right’. The moody melody lures you into the dark menacing abyss of the track until you are hooked craving for one more listen. Catchy, creepy and enticing the final track on the EP ripples with grit as guitars crunch and smash their way through a mosh ready rhythm while the endearing vocals soar and escalate as the track progresses.

Each track within ‘Gloom’ burrow’s deep into your veins with a satisfying thrilling sense of ecstasy that leaves you frothing at the mouth for more. These guys are just so good, what a debut EP. I need to see them live.

Northern Ireland art rock/neo psychedelic five piece Cloakroom Q are set to release their new EP ‘Going For A Walk and I’m Not Coming Back’ this Halloween. The band started in late 2016 and have since released a few singles and low fi compilations. These compilations were in the form of “official bootleg” recorded during the band’s earlier stages which include the single “Don’t Come Home” and their other more recent complication “Seven Stories Up”, partly recorded in Toulouse France and features versions of tracks off their debut EP ‘Going for a walk and I’m not coming back’.

‘Going For A Walk and I’m Not Coming Back’ is a spine tingling collection of tracks that weave and flourish with sublime obscurity through abrasive instrumentation while a healthy dose of psychedelic is churned through magnificent art rock elements and intense atmospheres.‘South of Sane’ kicks the mayhem off with the perfect tension building beat and spoken vocals. Soft guitars strum as the thrilling track builds and slowly creeps adding a warm trumpet into its swirling dark soundscape. Musically these guys create refined hair raising masterpieces with western-esque melodies mourning through rich rhythms and pining guitars. Through this EP  they showcase their ability to create stripped back wispy, mind melting acid soaked tunes shown brilliantly with ‘d0nkroom’. All these elements are twisted and entwined in euphoric dizzying bliss. ‘People With Energy’ rushes through on a heightened vibe of snappy beats, funky bass lines, jagged guitars and haunting synths. It’s danceable, groovy and filled with energy yet drenched in ominous vibes. Each track is crafted with the finest components to make it luscious, manic and thoroughly enjoyable. Their sound is unique to them and it is this band’s attention to detail and meticulous musicianship that makes these tracks so impressive. The grunge hued ‘Feeding The Stranger’ smears on that dark atmosphere thick. Rugged guitars crash and batter into the punchy drum assault while the vocals exclaim over this frenzied backdrop narrating about coughing blood, alcohol and vomiting.’Unearth’ closes the EP disguised, to start as a soft delicate number with a gentle beat and slow jam groovy bass line. The track builds becoming the mosh ready banger Cloakroom Q are pros at. Their braided rhythms keep a fluctuant foundation for everything to explode off. Cloakroom Q really give it their all for this beast of a track, constructing the verses perfectly to increase and tease the intensity of the fierce dynamite choruses. It’s a lengthy track, clocking in at 07:09 minutes but each and every minute is worth it. These guys blend the soothing and gentle tones seamlessly with the skull bashing heavy tones to lure you into a false sense of safe psychedelia before whacking you out of your dreamy daze with meaty gritty rock injections. It’s a magnificent end to the EP.

Their self titled EP presents five drum driven diverse tracks that bounce along a compelling backdrop with gripping melodies beautifully folding and enveloping sublime guitar moments. ‘Mystery Moves Me’ kicks the EP off with its moody strikingly riveting atmosphere as a delicate melody floats around eerie guitar refrains and an explosive rhythmic foundation.Filled with ominous mystery, this track displays the rich splendor of Seprona’s musicianship. ‘Who Won The War’ and ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’ continue the sinister vibe with stinging guitars wandering between the stomping drums and chilling vibes. The tracks are composed with refined grandeur that makes every song creep and crawl yet pack in an immense hefty instrumental backing. They keep the tunes catchy with a subtle anthemic persona. ‘Fragile’ takes the roll of the more tender emotional ballad as they strip things down to a soft beat, twinkling guitars and a delicate vocal delivery before building to its mighty passionate crescendo. The bands knack with melody is top notch and the velvety dynamic vocals pack in oodles of emotion that cut deep.

Ghostking is Dead ‘This Is Doubt’ EP

After releasing his debut – the Sweet Boy EP – and three standalone singles in 2018, as well as a packed touring schedule including the inaugural It Takes A Village festival, Matthew Corrigan’s solo project Ghostking is Dead returns with a new EP, ‘This Is Doubt’, on Hausu. Following the trajectory of his musical evolution, ‘This Is Doubt’ sees Corrigan experimenting with new forms within his songs.This EP draws from the difficulties of the year’s work so far, the physical and emotional price of the work, and the pressure of creating newer, groundbreaking work despite having a huge number of songs written by age 20.

‘This Is Doubt’ is a weaving entanglement of mind melting bliss filled with mysterious wobbling structures and electronic sounds blended between warm synths, infectious melodies and hip hop flavours. A new rendition of an earlier Bandcamp single ‘Tokyo’ which is a song about re-creating and changing identities creates the smooth cruising tone of the EP. A gentle slapping beat gloops between subtle electronics creating that immersing dark atmosphere that beautifully surrounds Corrigan’s deep vocals. The glorious melodies are presented in a lavish lounge bar manner with the ethereal electronics building in the background swirling and caressing your ears in rich textures and weaving soundscapes. There is a jazz element sprinkled along the tracks with ‘Hollow’ showcasing this most fluidly. With a hip hop feature and spoken lyrics this track brings  confidence and attitude into the spacey EP. There is rich depth and moody vibes smeared throughout however, Corrigan balances this perfectly with a touch of soul, slick smoothness and steamy grooves. ‘Burn Out’ glides and sweetly twinkles along cooing vocals and buoyant guitars. The atmosphere floats and wisps about the dreamy background and catchy melody. This melody at times swaggers with a Justin Timberlake suaveness yet maintains and drives through on the Ghostking is Dead stamp. The immense sulky brooding sultriness continues with ‘Its Over’. With vocal whines of depression and glumness between a fabulous enchanting guitar injection and glistening synths – Corrigan pines and almost howls over the steamy guitar and steady rhythms to create the perfect sobbing material. ‘How Did I Get Here?’ brings us to an emotional and fiery end to the EP. Organ chords give an erratic spookie sense of misery as the anguish filled vocals exclaim over a groove infested backdrop that verges on a slow form of reggae- like beats and striking keys which venture into a sort of ethnic style.

‘This Is Doubt’ is a unique collection of enthralling and enchanting tracks filled with rich rhythms, deep meanings and expressive vocals. There is something quite mesmerising about each track – it almost places you in a trance – entirely of Ghostking is Dead’s creation.
