The foursome have used as inspiration their “everyday struggles and fears”, as heard in the dark opening track ‘Disappearing Act’, while the distorted vocals and heavy guitar bring the genres of rock, metal and grunge together in ‘Unknown’ and ‘Cat’s Eyes’. If you’re a fan of Queens of the Stone Age or Sonic Youth, you will want to give The Lightness of Being a listen.
It’s not only their musical backgrounds that are diverse; singer Gabriel is originally from Singapore, Sam has lived in Japan and the US and Sergio is from Poland.
Listen to ‘Unknown’ here:
The debut EP “Directions” got heads banging last year, and the amp has been turned up even higher for their three-track release ‘Movements’.
