Genius – ‘2226’

artworks-000240210721-zg2063-original

Based out of the port city of Busan, South Korea, GENIUS is Steve C, Lee Chung Mok, and Kim Il Du.

Since forming in 2009, they independently released two studio albums Yangatchi (2009) and Birth, Choice, Death (2010), before releasing their third album, Beaches (2014) through Helicopter Records. The rock and roll foursome released their new and fourth album Starsea back in August and ‘2226’ is the latest single lifted from the record. ‘2226’ is a fuzzed-up, scuzzy and meandering rock and roll jam. Imbued with a punk spirit, the drawled vocals and buzzy punk guitars wade through a haze of fuzz and feedback with a loose, free-flowing vibe. As incessant the buzz and fuzz is, ‘226’ is strongly melancholic, dreamy and somewhat catchy – in short; it’s a top tune!

Starsea is out now & you can stream it here. For now, listen to ‘2226’ below now:

Johnny Kills – ‘End Game’

Brighton/London-based garage-surf trio Johnny Kills have been delighting our ears with a series of infectious and scuzzed-up singles; ‘Let’s Talk About Me’ & ‘My Shirt Guy Is High’.

The trio have returned with a scintillating, razor-sharp single ‘End Game’. A fizzy sub-three-minute blast of fuzzed-up and scuzzy alchemy. Vocals flicker in and out between meaty bass, crunchy riffs and searing percussion, all the while maintaining a sweetly melodic core. Clocking in at just under three minutes, it does not mess about and it will certainly brighten your day.

Everything from Johnny Kills thus far has been sensational, here’s to that trend continuing into the future.

For now though, you can take a listen to the superb ‘End Game’ below.
