It all the time appears like a vacation when Sullivan King drops new music, not to mention a full EP. “Close the schools! Pack up for the day, we’re going home!” Except, I work at home and my job is actually to evaluation music, so I can’t actually complain once I get one thing like this in my inbox for the day.
Sullivan King is out in the present day together with his new EP The Demented on Kannibalen Records, and let’s simply say I like it. There are some new kinds on this, an acoustic of an previous fan favourite, a recent collaboration with Grabbitz — what extra are you able to ask for??
The EP begins out with the title observe, “The Demented,” which sees Sully making an attempt his hand at midtempo for the primary time. It’s undoubtedly a bit jarring to listen to midtempo in a Sullivan King model, however it’s higher than him simply hopping on a bandwagon. He undoubtedly takes the style into his personal palms and molds it with guitar riffs and his personal vocals; plus, there’s nonetheless loads of rock to go round.
The Demented strikes on with “Lie,” which retains among the deep sound from the earlier observe, however ups the tempo a bit right into a extra electro home than midtempo rhythm. The construction of the track can be extra indicative of conventional verse-chorus-verse than the build-drop-bridge of your regular EDM observe.
Grabbitz and Sullivan King lastly collaborate after years of friendship on “Show Stopper.” There are in all probability numerous demos on their respective laborious drives, however that is one thing really value placing out. Grabbitz bears his rapping chops on this one, which you may need seen dwell for those who caught Sully’s set at HARD Summer. The observe additionally has a showtunes model bridge that makes this one among Sullivan King’s most various and musically bold tunes but. And final however not least, it ends with an exceptional breakdown that actually showcases Sully’s love of Avenged Sevenfold.
Finally, the EP ends on an acoustic rendition of his track “Don’t Care” from his House of Wolves EP in 2017. Nothing a lot to say about this one besides that we like it.
