I reviewed Soft Treasure from Titanics awhile back and really enjoyed it, here’s proof. They let me know they would have a new release coming out and this October, they released Deeper, their latest album. Since then, I’ve been listening to it barely passing a single track and I wanted to share a little of what I thought because let’s face it, you can’t stop me? (but if you can, just please, don’t…)
The album starts out with an instrumental, all synthesized out, and pads everywhere; just slowly building into the meat of the album. Kick, punch, and it all comes in on that second track and it keeps that general tone and feel throughout the album. Look, I love when an album actually sticks within itself and doesn’t travel the musical globe in each song. To me, that tends to jar from the experience and the journey music can take you on, but I digress.
Each track has a way of just relaxing your mind, taking you away from whatever may be facing you that day. They still goes to different places, and each of those places are familiar and unique moving song to song without the listener getting bored. From the slow synth to the plucky reverbed guitar riffs, I find myself letting my mind wander into nostalgia, dreams or just letting go and focusing on what I’m doing. All this opinion to say, I think we can agree music affects us to the core, and this music does just that. I have a thing for chill wave, I just do and this is just my experience with this album. I suggest, you take a listen to it, and find out for yourself what music can actually do besides just get stuck in your head making you end up hating it anyway.
Deeper is a self produced and recorded indie release, which by no means is easy, and promoting this disc is key to its success. Titanics put out a wonderful disc that will be in my rotation and something I most certainly recommend. You can support this band by buying this album, or telling everyone you know about, which again, you should; they deserve it.
You can find the album at Bandcamp.
