Breezy the band – Telemaster

If you live in a smallish city or in one that is reduced to being a cultural wasteland, you should look after some artists, as they were albino tigers. Make sure that they are careful crossing the road, careful with what they eat, and careful not to spoil their talents. 

Do you have a poet influenced by the romantics? Treasure them and tell ‘em they’re great. Is there anyone looking to become a sculptor after having works by Rodin or Brancusi? Excellent! Let them know they’re going to do great. Do you have any dark, brooding, goth or post-punk bands knocking about? You’re lucky. You support that!

Most people don’t have those sorts of luxuries where they live. And, in fact, more and more people are going to be in this situation pretty soon. There’s no replenishing of these kinds of artists. Dark, brooding, goth bands are especially hard to come by. Ones that are also good are starting to be part of a very exclusive club. 

Treat Breezy the band’s efforts on the new single “Telemaster,” as the works of someone trying to keep an old art form alive. The band’s music is subtle. It requires that you acclimatize with it. This is not a group obsessed with creating a scene for themselves based on all-too-obvious fashion choices and cheesy choruses. Nah, Breezy the band want more for themselves and they could use your help. 


Parallel – Painkiller

I like good songwriting. That’s no secret. I like it when verses and choruses come together. I’m a fan of songwriters who manage to be either immensely clever or supremely dumb. I like songs that work in the same way that an Ernest Hemingway short story does. 

But all of those things can work against a band just looking to get the listener planted into a moment of their own. Bringing in characters or chanting funny slogans may just work to drain the song of its intensity. 

Some bands’ music is similar to a cartoon that can be published in a daily paper. Other bands’ music is more akin to abstract painting. It’s not telling just one story. But that does not mean that by giving it your attention, you’re not going to be able to create one. 

Parallel’s “Painkiller” is all about setting a mood and delivering it with style. In doing that, they go back to what is now an almost ancient tradition that started with goth and post-punk bands. The band is interested in colors, especially as they begin to fade away. “Painkiller” is a sunset turning into nighttime, and no direct storytelling would describe it in quite the same way.
