Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Strumbrush. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their musical vision.
The single “Burnout” is part of the album “Way Back” and I must say that both the song and the whole album amazed me.
It is not easy nowadays to find something new but these guys have managed to create an intriguing, hypnotic and original musical landscape.
In their compositional style, I felt influences from the 90s which, however, are expertly accompanied by modern intuitions and nuances that make the sound of Strumbrush timeless and impossible to label.
This band managed to create their own musical limbo because they courageously followed their instincts and their artistic vision.
Although the genre is different their compositional ability made me think of bands like Radiohead. I will definitely keep this band under the radar as I believe they are very talented.
Burnout is Strumbrush’s Single Out Now!
Innovative and Magical!
Strumbrush is an estranged solo indie project turned eclectic experimental rock band. The debut Strumbrush album, Way Back, is a collective effort, full of twists and turns in all the right ways — not lost is the warm, fuzzy feeling of the old, carefully integrated with the grit and lively, noisey nature of the new.
The Atlanta-based quartet are quickly ascending with their mix of varied artistic visions and perceptions. The group takes their favorite parts of grunge & alt rock and intently sprinkles in their individual jazz, noise, folk, math and other subtle influences. The album introduces Jack Pace’s lead guitar prowess, haunting vocals, and atmospheric and immersive sound design. Fans will experience for the first time the genius of Tyler Sherman’s unique, melodic yet percussive bass playing. As well as Kalen Schaffer’s tasteful, swinging style of drumming, which can be recognized in an instant. All this stacked on top of the foundation singer/songwriter Foster Wells, culminating in something truly spectacular.
