Survival Code Give Us The Brief On The Release Of Their Brand New Single ‘Not Working’

 

Currently gearing up for a momentous year, Survival Code have been pushing themselves to the limit, and now with a full-length album currently under-way there seems to be no stopping the dynamic duo!

With fantastically edgy and heavy past releases including ‘Broken strings’ and ‘One’, music lovers are eagerly awaiting what the boys in Survival Code have come up with now.

“I always encourage people to take what they can from a song no matter what it’s original intention so not sure if there’s a need to dictate the feeling. Having said that the title isn’t keeping too many secrets in fairness, so I suppose the new single is just about putting your hand up and letting anyone/someone know if it’s not working for you”, Explains Gary(lead singer of the band).

The song is already out, and with a artistically intriguing music video to accompany it, definitely don’t hesitate to keep up to date with the boys from Survival Code.

Interview: We Sit Down With Mexican Band Ikkarus To Talk About Their New Album ‘Stains And Echoes’

 

We got the chance to talk to the band Ikkarus, and with a brand new album out, they sure do have a lot to talk about.

Q: Firstly, you’ve just completed and released the new album ‘Stains and Echoes’, how did you write the songs, and what does the writing consist of?

A: “Normally, Javo gets to the studio with the main ideas, or sends them to us through email or any other means. When I listen to a “skeleton” I start to think about patterns, rhythms and fills that would fit into it. Sometimes I just work on it by humming”.

“When creating music, I try to make it a spiritual thing. I ask for guidance within my beliefs and I start playing for a long time until something jumps out and catches my attention: Maybe a simple melody or guitar riff. Maybe just a chord sequence. I record that onto the computer, leave it sounding on and on for a while”.

Q: How did you finish off the album, how did you figure out the track list? 

A: “We practically went through all the finished songs we had. We took care that the ones chosen for Stains & Echoes were all part of the style and genre we’re trying to work on”.

Q: What is your local music scene like? 

A:  “There are many projects I’m a fan of. However, I feel it can be monotone. It doesn’t really explore an original sound or seek to create one. Many local bands sound pretty much the same, and I feel emerging styles such as Indie-Pop and Indie-Folk constantly influence them and so the product all around is too similar”.

“I feel it has been a difficult scene in Mexico, for many bands (us included). It’s generally difficult to get a gig unless you have some sort of connection”.

Q: How do you guys think you fit in?

A: “We hope that the different elements we’re bringing to the table captivate our audience from the first experience, whether it’s live or listening to the studio record. If there’s something we’re looking to be, is emotional in our music”. 

“Based on our live performances I feel we’ve had a good response from the audience, however, only time will tell what kind of part we played in our local music scene”.

Q: And finally, What do people need to know about the album? 

A:  “Stains & Echoes is our presentation card to the world and at the same time seeks to be an instrument to find some good vibes, solace and consolation through art”.

“I want to say that Stains & Echoes has a little piece of our hearts tattooed into every single song of the album”.

“Stains & Echoes is a huge thing in my life. The hope of its existence at the beginning led me personally through many rough places, helped me push through a multitude of musicians who just wouldn’t believe in this project, through a huge lack of self-belief and many other things”.

Anarchy Reigns Are A Formidable Force With New Track ‘Hypocrisy’

With a string of music videos, live shows and a long list of songs now in the back catalog, Hitch and the rest of the guys in Anarchy Reigns are ready to take on the world.

As a front man who looks dark, gloomy and  haunting, Hitch is actually just like everyone else, a man just chasing his dream. With a medical profession alongside, Hitch sidelines as a rock star, making his fans highly excitable thinking about what Hitch will do next.

 

The brand new track ‘Hypocrisy’ is a hard-hitting installment based on the idea that there are those who look down on us, believing they have higher standards and beliefs.

Be sure to check this track out:

Review: Oceans Of Noise’ ‘The Age Of Ghouls’

 

Raging riffs, melodies that posses and an front woman who could make heads turn with one single note.

I need to state one thing before I write this review. I love this song! Its reminiscent to many of my favourite bands and artists, while still managing to maintain a fresh and stylistically unique sound. The production is a great, and makes all of the instrumentation shine through the noise.

The song itself has elements of bands such as Evanescence, as well as mixing melodies not too dissimilar to my favourite band HIM. The track itself is an ultimate anthem, which is set to feature on their brand new EP ‘Oceans Of Noise’, Out now.
