With the coronavirus crippling everyone’s touring plans for the foreseeable future, there at least is good news as far as bands writing new music. Recently releasing Reverence in 2018, Parkway Drive is yet another band seeing their touring plans dry up – which is a shame for a band that prides themselves on putting together a great live show for their loyal fanbase.
The good news, whether you were disappointed in Reference and/or you’re hoping for new PWD music soon – Parkway Drive is in the process of writing a new album.
The Chain Gang of 1974, 2020
Over the years, a genre I’ve taken a fancy to is Indietronica. This synth-driven brand of alternative creates a soundscape that is transcendent. When I came across Kamtin Mohager’s project The Chain Gang of 1974, I knew I had to hear more from the artist. Today, I’m checking out his new album Honey Moon Drips, set to release tomorrow.
After the title track eases the listener in with a euphoric backdrop, “Do You Mind” displays fervent evidence that Kamtin’s style can be likened to a pleasant dream. With such an easygoing, relaxing demeanor, the layers upon layers of production stand with the genre’s greats, like Chvrches and Purity Ring.
