Voodoo Rays Release New Record ‘Empire’
Voodoo Rays, hailing from London, have released a stunning new album called ‘Empire‘. The four-piece group’s latest release is an instant hit that draws inspiration from current pioneers in addition to the indie heavyweights.
The first track, titled ‘Chantal‘ on the album, is a strong indicator of the album’s overall quality. The guitars’ bone-chilling aesthetic immediately draws us into the mix. Also, they blast a hole through the speakers with their powerful sound. As the vocalist, Frank moves closer to the microphone; the drums hit with a raucous tongue.
The band takes pleasure in the more sinister aspects of their style, as this tune and those that follow it have a dark tone. Additionally, numerous indications of psychedelic pop rock also rising from the shadows. The song ‘A House With No Windows‘ first drew our attention to the band because of the stadium-filling quality of the guitar sound that reverberated throughout the space. This song seems to be a step in the right direction, and the band’s quality reaches a new pinnacle with it.
The song ‘She Drives‘ is another of our favourites, and it brings to mind the kind of music that Pink Floyd produced in their early years. It is experimental in structure. Additionally, there is no right or wrong way to proceed here and the band pave a new road for indie.
‘Empire’ is the title of the album’s last track. It has a striking introduction, with the bass riff carrying on from the murky textures that were there before it. The vocals have a hazy, ethereal quality to them. Also, they take us on a journey that will stay with us for a very long time.
