Angry Arcade is a LA based group that is putting out some
great new music. When I heard their new song Tear Drops, I thought this is a
lot different than most of the most I hear on the radio. And so I needed to
take a closer look at their music. I listened to the song again, and I realized
that I really like the electronic sound the band has going on. The lyrics are
sad, it’s about letting someone back into your life after you let them go. You
know that what was I thinking sadness you get when you return to a relationship
that clearly should not have been revisited.
So I went on over to their page on reverbnation, and found some
of their other music. And I liked it too. The song All Caught Up was a little
less electronic focused, and used more guitars, which shows diversity on the
part of the band. The song Haunted has more of a pop feel to it, but just
because it has a pop sound it doesn’t mean that the song is lightweight. It
reminded me a little bit of some of Coldplay’s music. And their song Pharcyde
has a little bit of a heavy metal overtone to it, which really appealed to me.
I really like that this band is not sticking to the music
formula, the music they have presented so far doesn’t fit into just one into
just one niche. They are experimenting and that is a sign that they band will
continue to put out great music. And I can’t wait to hear what they offer up
So listen to their music, and let me know what you think.
