Here’s a little dose of some local heavy, with Absolem finally unleashing their debut EP.
Engineered, mixed and mastered by Vinnie Moncada, Absolem blend early 00’s nu-metal tones (think KoRn, Soulfly etc) with powerhouse vocalist Leah Russ switching between massive rock vocals to absolute throat-tearing screams.
Dubarray’s new single ‘Rise and Fall’ delicately weaves idyllic soundscapes with a sense of resolve. A tribute to the band’s love for Queensland’s Heron Island, Dubarray’s latest offering carries the listener into clear blue oceans and melting sunsets. A testament to the band’s evolving electronic sound, ‘Rise and Fall’ is driven by a dub-groove baseline, and is characteristically lifted and complimented by high vibrations, layers of atmospheric vocals, and mesmerising melody.
