Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Sonar Red. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the haunting melodies of their songs.
Upon first listen, the dark and intense atmosphere of this band immediately struck me.
A music definitely innovative that goes to explore new sounds. In some passages, this music reminded me of David Bowie.
Boundless creativity that becomes contagious.
The continuous change of mood and harmonies makes these songs as unstable as a raft in the ocean.
But after a while of sailing, instead of just trying to stay in balance, you let yourself go to the movement of the waves and you start to feel the sound inside and you start to feel safe because you are part of everything now.
The raft becomes safe and you know for sure that it will get you to shore.
This music is not to be listened to but to be felt and you have to let yourself be carried away by the notes without asking questions because the answers will come by themselves.
The Ground Beneath Our Feet is Sonar Red’s Single Out Now!
A successful sound experiment!
Sonar Red produce intense and emotive post/alt rock combined with a strong visual and lyrical message. Plenty to write about but possibly more for those leaning towards NIN, A Perfect Circle and bands of that ilk. That’s not to say that there isn’t a pop/accessible vibe here but that tends to temper the more aggressive, darker melodic moments.
Why post rock? Mainly the blend of rock and electronica with more experimental textures etc. This is the first release from a very diverse debut album named Nonunion.
