Strangelight are a band from New York that plays noise rock and this is a review of their 2013 ep "9 Days" which was released by Sacrament Music.
"Split And Divide" begins with some melodic guitar riffing which starts using power chords once the drums, bass guitars and melodic vocals start kicking in and after awhile they turn into aggressive screams while also keeping around the melodic elements as well as bringing in some clean playing.
"Mosh Party Ad" begins with some heavy and melodic guitar riffs and drums which lead to some clean singing becoming a part of the song along with some powerful bass guitars and melodic guitar leads and after awhile t he music gets more diverse.
"High Five Hailstorm" begins with some clean guitar playing and drums before going into a heavier direction along with some aggressive vocals and after awhile powerful bass guitars become a part of the song along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later.
"White Feather" begins with some bass guitars and drums before the melodic guitars and vocals come on along with some more aggressive elements being utilized as well as some heavy guitar riffing and after awhile t here is a brief use of guitar leads as well as the riffing getting faster in certain parts.
"Xmas" begins with some clean guitar playing which leads to some drums, melodic riffs and spoken word parts and after a few seconds melodic vocals are brought into the song while also keeping around the spoken word parts and after awhile the song starts bringing in heavier parts along the cleaner elements.
"Tiers Of Joy" begins with some clean melodic guitar riffs and drums before going into a heavier direction along with some melodic vocals which get more aggressive as the song moves on and after awhile there is a brief use of melodic guitar leads.
Song lyrics cover everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t he recording.
In my opinion Stranglelight are a very great sounding melodic noise rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mosh Party Ad" and "Tiers Of Joy". RECOMMENDED BUY.
