Bittersweet Descent – Fall Around You

Similar artists: Bob Mould, Sugar, Foo Fighters, Green Day, The All-American Rejects

Genre: Indie Rock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock

Bittersweet Descent proves that they’ve acquired the most intimate of understandings of how alternative rock works judging by their single “Fall Around You.”

There are people who spent decades of their lives trying to invent a new and worthy style of music. They make their friends and relatives resent them and sever any relationships with those who might disagree with them. They arduously study musical formulas in a bid to avoid them. 

Worse of all, they most likely never end up fighting what is that they sought. As it turns out, most of what we call creativity is just rearranging things that others did before us. But what will we pick with a near-infinite variety from which to choose? That’s where the great ones make themselves known. 

Bittersweet Descent love the work of Bob Mould and the dynamics of alternative rock. They handle this sound better than most, as can be observed by leaning in close and listening to “Fall Around You.” Plus, they manage to bring in their own set of emotions that lend themselves so well to the kind of well-crafted melodies put on display here. 


Hevvy Serve – Torture

Similar artists: The Smiths, Joy Division, A Place To Bury Strangers

Genre: Gothic / Dark Wave

Hevvy Serve is a band obsessed with the dark rock sounds of the 80s, infusing their brand of minimalist rock with artsy sensibilities. 

Why are people so fascinated with creativity? Why can someone get people to join their cause merely by showcasing their ability to be creative? After all, almost all great cult leaders have revelled in showing their disciples their ability to sing, play music, draw or write. There are some gurus who claim to have written thousands of pieces of music or hundreds of books. 

The quality of these works is rarely discussed. It doesn’t need to be. Most people do not engage in meaningful creative endeavours. Consequently, seeing someone proficient in this kind of hidden language is enough to warrant their trust. 

Everybody, however, is bound to earn something by being creative. Hevvy Serve’s post-punk/goth hybrid carries with it the group’s clear interest in art in the single “Torture.” It rings throughout like the only thing that can bring about some hope in an era of faithlessness. And while Hevvy Serve’s sound is built from darkness, it’s controlled almost in the same way that meditation is.
