Review:: Fukushimarama! | SIIINES

If you like 3OH3!, Ellie Goulding, RiFF RaFF, HYPERCRUSH

It’s a Friday night and you’re a little buzzed while waiting in line at the club with your friends. Your hair is long, your shoes are rad, your outfit is killer and you are ready to take on the night. When you walk inside there is a pounding pouring out of the speaker that throws you off but is intimidating at the same time. Drinks are had, there is a lot of dancing and you are in a daze as you head home after a long night of rowdy activity knowing there will be a hell of a hangover tomorrow. This is what it feels like to listen to Fukushimarama! by Los Angeles electro-rock band SIIINES.

SIIINES are an in your face aggressive electronic band with EDM booming through the veins of their music.  Made up of two members, Travis Nesbitt and Morgan Gies, they have previously released an EP called Disk0sno earning them an Edmonton Music Award for ‘Best Electronic Release.’ In 2013 while starting work on Fukushimarama! they focused more on celebrity, drugs, sex, and money as their content.

The first cut on the five-track album is called “God I hate Clubs” but could not be more perfect for one. This album fits right alongside the EDM popularity and I would not be surprised if I heard it at a rave. Although it can be repetitive at times, EDM comprises that element and makes it work to their advantage. When asked about the EP Gies stated, “It’s about watching the world burn and dancing in the flames. YOLO!” If you decide to give this album a listen be ready to boogie. You can catch the duo on tour this year.

Review:: The Wolves | With Beating Hearts

image

For those who like: Kelly Clarkson, Ellie Goulding, Skrillex, Avicii 

By the looks of the album cover for The Wolves, I was expecting a completely different sound from L.A. artist Colleen D’Agostino. When she isn’t busy taking on a new excursion, D’Agostino fronts the L.A. band, The Material. With this project she has ventured to take on a solo approach and stray away from the rock scene that she is used to delving into the realm of electronica.

If you have a liking for gauzy synthesizers and a heavy electronic feel this EP entitled, The Wolves is definitely for you. D’Agostino has strong female vocals that power her through the album and make you warm inside. Each song seems to get poppier than the next, but in a good yet catchy way. “The One For You” sounds like a Kelly Clarkson ballad yearning to be the only one in someone’s life. There is not one track that doesn’t utilize the synth and is reaching towards something much different than what she has done before.  D’Agostino reaches past her comfort zone and tries on something new that works for her.

She claims that The Wolves is 80’s heavy, but I feel as if it calls upon a more modern scene and vibe with a place next to Ellie Goulding and Krewella. D’Agostino can fit in right in the modern world of EDM and find her own little niche. Hopefully her voice will breakthrough and be heard amongst the crowd of screaming, jumping rave-going children and create a spot for her in their world.
