Artist Of The Week- Anthropoid- Dualism ( Single Review)

Words Were Written by Anselm Anderson for Rambling Man's Reviews

Anthropoid AKA David Kuchar hails from The Czech Republic. The Dubstep/ EDM producer/ Musician has been trying to forge a voice for himself through the music he creates from an early age. He began in a rock band with his elder brother, rehearsing and performing music until he moved to Florida when he was 17. Kuchar experimented with various styles of music until a move to LA changed things for him.  It was here that he started to produce his own songs, before finally residing in England to continue his musical journey. The London- Based singer has now released his latest single " Dualism", a song he explains is " about the observation that people are capable of producing complete mayhem. The song is about acknowledging that these two forces are very much present in my life as well"

Dualism is a mix of EDM and Dubstep combined with Funk and rock create an organic and fresh sound that produce different elements of tones that provoke an array of emotions inside the listener upon first listen. Anthropoid achieves this by telling a story about battling demons through a variety of textures that sound joyous at times, and dark at other intervals.

The opening bars of guitar mixed with dreamlike electronic beats instantly hooks the listener onto a track that feels out of the ordinary.  The scuzzy guitar line heightens the tempo before a breakdown of a funky riff acts as a bridge for the opening lines of  I thought I was nice/ I thought I was A good kid. 

The vocals are thoughtful and reflective, as the narrator battles between good and bad. The intensity of the music retains its mid-tempo stance. The song has a positive feeling towards the end during the final third, as the breakdown slows down, before resuming to finish on the chorus.

This is a well-produced track that manages to keep a balance between a laid back dance track, as well as a deep, hard-hitting rock track. I feel there is a bright future for this artist if they can keep producing tracks like this one.

Anthropoid- Dualism is available now via online musical platforms.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK : Graylinglake- Runaway ( Single Review)

Words Written by Anselm Anderson for Rambling Man's Reviews

Graylinglake is an Indie/Alternative rock band from Malmo, Sweden. They consist of former True Lies member Michael Harrsjo ( Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards) and drummer Conny Stade.

Graylinglake have been making inroads within the music scene in their native Sweden, and have recently released a new album The Impossible Possible.   Runaway is the band's latest single; a pop-orientated bundle of feelgood music and a catchy chorus that will whisk the listener away.

The opening bars follow a basic chord progression that lets the rhythm bounce along uninterrupted. The upbeat tempo is soft and melodic which engages the listener before the vocals enter. Harrsjo's voice is warm, as to sound easier over the harmonic guitar lines and gentle drumming. This allows the singer to sound soothing without intimidating the listener.

 The lyrics are well balanced to match the optimistic tone. I feel the song is more apt for a summer tune due to it's laid back nature.  The track itself feels like something Bruce Springsteen himself would write;  A simple, easy to listen to a ballad with no complications.

You can now find The Impossible Possible available via all good online platforms
