hit (Linklater) by Bill Diver’s Passionproject: Review
Bill Diver’s Passionproject creates an indie sound filled with elements of slow rock and funk. Their track entitled “hit (Linklater)” feels like a groovy youthful anthem gripping our hearts with nostalgia.
The song is a modern twist on the indie genre’s emotional pull, with high-gain guitars and a steady rhythmic perspective. The singer exudes an alluring presence that works beautifully with the music. Instead of conforming to the conventional tropes of pop or rock, it uses a more experimental and spoken-word style of singing. It’s really invigorating to the ears, and the fine appeal of the guitars’ multicolored presence adds to the overall experience. While the song started off slowly, it took a pleasant turn when an atmospheric synth entered the scene and set off an explosion of sounds before ending on a similar note.
Bedroom guitarist vibes emanate from the core structure of the instrument’s vibe on “hit (Linklater)”. Aside from that, the magic of the melodies has a remarkable nod to old-school style indie pieces dating back to the genre’s first boom in the music biz. Bill Diver’s Passionproject is an ambitious indie/art rock endeavor with the stated goal of capturing the world’s unacknowledged grief over loss. The band’s musical ideology is quite moving, focusing on the realities of isolation, and disconnection. The latter which the artist believes arises as a result of the increasing reliance on the internet as a substitute for face-to-face interaction.
