Hidden Worlds by Tracksuit: Album Review
Tracksuit is an indie rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, consisting of Brendan Rice, Tyler Harrington, and Marcus Johnson. Their sound is a complex fusion of genres and sounds, with layered production and passionate baritone vocals. There are 10 songs in the album, of which popular mentions are “Area #51,” and “Ghost of Rome”.
The album stands out from others in the indie music scene due to the guitar and vocal performances and looks at the ideas of memory and death through the eyes of a divided modern culture. Most of the songs are introduced by a catchy guitar riff, of which I can’t get enough, and a steady percussion beat that immediately establishes the song’s speed. Even if the speed of their song is not slow, it nevertheless has a chill vibe. You feel like the tunes are flying by you while Rice is sitting there singing to you. Incredible psychedelic rock-influenced guitar work from the 1960s.
The synthesized, ambient noises are precisely placed in the mix and add just the proper touch. This is the ideal conclusion to a track of this genre. The songs stay faithful to their indie beginnings, proving that certain musical genres stand the test of time. This album more than does its job of showcasing how uniquely brilliant Tracksuit is with their organic attempt, in comparison to the rest of the modern scene.
