Cool and dark – Galanos go noir like no other in their newest album, “Deceiver Receiver.”
Each passage plays perfectly into the next in “Mariana Trench” – leading us across an oceanic expanse of sound.
We’re in for a cool cruise.
“Way down in the trench…”
Did we mention how cool this song is? We’ll cap our use of the “C-word” at infinity for this article.
A brief and bombastic drum break after the first chorus cracks through thick, droopy atmosphere.
We’re a few fathoms deep.
“7 fathoms plus…”
Two singers evoke Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age – taking turns at whispering to us; soft, soothing, colluding…
They mouth “mariana” between verses voiced in hushed tones.
Rumbling bass grinds at our ears menacingly – chasing a laid-back strumming rhythm on guitar.
We plunge to the center of the Earth.
And yes, it’s cool.
Take a second to sample this lush listening experience for yourself.
