7.50 (Seven and a Half)

by Electrotype

This classically-influenced rock EP is a moving blend of haunting melodies and highly-charged guitars, a synthesis of grandeur and intimacy, moving from consonance to dissonance and back, with rich keyboards, pulsating basses, and restless percussion.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In this debut EP for Philadelphia-area art-rocker Electrotype, the songs draw from the familiar but reorganizes the influences to create surprising—and interesting—juxtapositions. In one example, the synth-heavy "Ready" owes a lot to eighties Genesis or early Keane but pairs it with punk-like energy and grunge-like explosiveness. "Pound of Flesh" puts Radiohead-style vocals/melody/lyrics over a Blondie-like organ/guitar/bass/drums combo. The album's experiments with dissonance range from pretty (the layered jewel-like "Clockwork") to harsh (the guitar solo concept piece "Invisible Shadows"), but are beautiful all the same and are more interesting with every listening. Make no mistake, 7.50 rocks harder than most art rock out there, such as the stadium-rock opener "Both Sides of the Atlantic" or the metal-flavored second half of "Night Visions/In the Blink of an Eye". 7.50 has its semi-acoustic moment in "Hard To Believe" and proves that it's the composition, not the sound alone, that drives the album. This EP could be a genre-definer for a new generation of art rockers.
