BEST NEW TRACK: TOBACCO - GOT WET IN THE BOMB SHELTER
Tobacco solo side project is starting to seem like more of a career shift and we're just fine with that. The mysterious Black Mother Super Rainbow leading man released his fourth solo album, Sweatbox Dynasty last year and he's now finally following it up with a new song. We here at We Are: The Guard are equally pleased to be representing TOBACCO on our sister company publishing company, Brill Building. So, we can't help but be stoked about this release.
The track is titled "Got Wet in the Bomb Shelter" and makes us feel like we're living in a video game. Like if the world was ending and we needed to fight off zombies, this would be the soundtrack we'd want playing to keep the adrenaline pumping--so the title seems quite appropriate (at least the Bomb Shelter part).
TOBACCO - GOT WET IN THE BOMB SHELTER
What makes the song so powerful? It has a bass that vibrates but never overwhelms and blunt beats. It's a bit deranged but somehow in a controlled way. At the very first synth, your ear drums will feel it because it is quite dense, but your body will settle in. It could even be cathartic since controlled, chaotic sound has a way of drowning out the noises in our head.
We At The Guard are not sure if this is a one-off the beginning of a new album roll-out. One can only hope this is just one chapter of a compilation with equal parts ferocity.
