Catchy up beat grunge rocker.

Broke House - The Sound of the Streets     Rock, Alternative Country, Psychedelic, Pop 05/11/2018
Broke House transmit stories through the ether on whammy bar and spring reverb. Metronomic bass, kick and snare hold steady while resonant keyboards tune in as mediums, vibrating with melancholy.
Warm, sensory rock music that bares the tint of a pained heart before you’ve heard its tale of romantic decay. The melancholic atmosphere gains depth thanks to some well-chosen imagery. Initially it’s animating – enchanted jewels, flowers in bloom – but soon starts to deteriorate – abandoned trailer, dust-covered dreamcatcher. Resembling the Go-Betweens in its sober enunciation of emotional unrest.

Indtiko - Plastic     Rock, Punk, Electronic 05/11/2018
A firm nod to post punk PIL. Pixies and At the Drive In, ‘INDTIKO’ claws the music industry cliff face by the skin of his lyrical prowess and punk/electronic vibe.
A grunt signals the arrival of Jake Moose’s combative vocals and offbeat lyrics, whilst the beat and bassline (reminiscent of T-REX) instantly gets the body moving. Apace with the groove are distinctive guitar licks, providing posture. From start to finish, the vibe is in full support of Moose’s vocal delivery which has been likened to Johnny Lydon of PIL.

This song tells the story of man who has had his soul crushed by the system....the daily grind of repetitive life. Most of us will experience it at some point in our lives. The musical version of Falling Down.
