Solar – ‘Demo 2016’ Premiere

Posted: by Sean Gonzalez

“Adriana and I started writing songs as Solar in the summer of 2014. She wanted to sound like Catherine Wheel or Cocteau Twins and I wanted to rip Superdrag and the Pixies and we landed somewhere in the middle. This demo is two years in the making, hopefully it’s sounds as dialed in as it should for having taken us that long.” – Che Hise-Gattone

Welcome to punk/power pop in a raw and fuzzy form. Above is Demo, a three song EP from Solar for the year 2016. While not neck snappingly abrasive, there is a lot of energy that will crush listeners, whether the crashing drum work or the chuggy distortion from the guitars. The vocals slice their way through all of the dissonance and present melody through all the discordant beauty. It’s transcendental. This has been a long time coming for the group, and it shows off. Pick up a tape from the label today right here!

Demo is released tomorrow.
