The sound of this band is very interesting as it is modern and innovative.
There are influences from the past but they have been cleverly integrated into a sound environment that mirrors today’s music.
What If is a beautiful alternative rock song. The mysterious melody that creates tension… seems like a post-apocalyptic sound.
It feels like these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve this musical understanding.
THE HYBRIS have found their sound that puts them in a limbo of their own. Honestly, I found no flaws both in terms of composition and production. The chord progression is well thought out and the mix leaves the right space for each sound element and the song breathes well.
A band to keep under the radar as these guys produce quality music.
What if is THE HYBRIS’s Single Out Now!
Modern and Innovative!
What if is THE HYBRIS’s Single | Indie Music
THE HYBRIS is an international Alternative Rock project of three friends. Originally all members lived in Germany, they know each other for many, many years. In the past they played in various rockbands, before the trio was spread all over the world.
Today they live in Nice, in L.A. and in Cologne, but still – and more than ever – make music. They write and produce everything on their own, in a joint virtual recording studio. Every member plays various instruments and contributes what the current piece of music needs.
And why this name? In greek tragedy ‘Hybris’ stood for exaggerated self-pride, arrogance, excess of ambition causing the transgressor’s ruin. The perfect headline for the age we live in.
Their lyrics often show political attitude – well, rock songs without attitude are crap, right? But why these silly masks? Isn’t this mask thing worn out? THE HYBRIS create their music as Ringo Rabbit, Beanie Bison and Malcolm Mandrill – three wannabe superheroes on a mission to save the world. “We felt like doing something ‘different’. At first it was a stupid idea, but meanwhile we think it is pretty cool”, Ringo says.
Some suspect, they want to make themselves more interesting than they really are. Others believe it is a smart move – since they’re incredibly ugly in real life.
