Sweden-based trio, The Killing Tapes, recently dropped their new EP, Falling Down (Red). A 6-track ride that comes fully equipped with hypnotic vocal flows, dynamic instrumentals, and spot-on production work, this is a genre-bending release that'll leave you smashing repeat once it's over. What a release!
Each track flows seamlessly into the next, and The Killing Tapes shine brightly by being able to creatively craft a sound that feels welcoming while at the same time eerie. Light and dark elements seem to be in a constant struggle in this release, especially in the instrumental work. This dynamic makes for a unique sound that keeps you engaged and wanting to hear more. Whether it's the soft synth work that seems to make an appearance on each track, the clever lyricism, or the unique transitions, each element seems to be carefully placed to be able to deliver this anthemic sound.
As we said above, each track feels like it belongs. This allows for the EP to feel like a complete release, and not just a set of songs. By the time this wild ride is over, all you'll want to do is hear more, and that's exactly what an EP is supposed to do. We can't wait to see what's next! While you wait to find out, we highly suggest you give the other EP they released this year a listen too. It's called Falling Down (Blue).
You can jam along to the new release below. We also added a couple of tracks to our Underground Indie & Alternative playlist on Spotify. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow The Killing Tapes so you can stay on top of what else they have going on. Enjoy!
