RobinPlaysChords returns with a new 5-track album (not an EP despite having 5 tracks, due to a run time of nearly 40 minutes) titled, "Unmasking." Slated for release on Feburary 10th, it is a manic, noise-rock-opera experience.
"Welcome To The Hell" is a Hard Rock track that balances beauty and pain in such a distinct manner that it forces the listener to pay attention to every detail. Counting with the collaborations of Neil Taylor (Tears for Fears, Tina Turner, Chris De Bourgh, Natalie Imbruglia, Metallica, Phil Collins, Kylie Minogue, and more), and the amazing vocals of La Strange, the single is a must-listen for any music fan.
"This Song encapsulates all the weird and wonderful music i've ever grown up with, while featuring one of those very musician's on the track, Kellii Scott. His band Failure's influence is highly eminent in my life and this song is my tribute in return." - Qoma
A truly mesmerizing soundtrack to which we can return to in the heaviest of our days. A haven of music for us to lay our heads down, and recharge. Now we can't wait for the full album to drop! Which will do so on Dec 28th you can pre-order now!
You will end the track with a nice empowering feeling, and a sweet sensation of being put back in the 2000's musical universe. A very, very strong release for this young artist and a big promise of what's to come.
"Crown is a song that when you are at your lowest points and ready to give up, all you need to do is stand back up and fight (put your crown back on) take back what is yours and what you deserve. This song was written for those who struggle and are tired and want to fight for something greater better in their life. You can't give up" Kevin Whitaker
In grim times, the Qwarks search out moments of joy, riding on a wave of psychedelic joie de vivre with the backdrop of a barren wasteland of fragmented selfies and melting database columns. In the desert by a campfire they met the Reverend Zebadiah Hawkwind III who attempted to exorcise their demons through a heavy dose of 5/4 psyche based skronk.
"We built this album around a space theme to reflect on feelings of distance, isolation, loss, introspection, and ultimately the relief of interpersonal connection. We wrote that which we felt while hunkered down in our own 'space ships' through the harrowing trials, and the few stolen moments of joy, of a global pandemic. As a lyric notes: "Every hour's a gift: The signals, the noise, the sorrows and joys." - What Strange Beasts
"One day a voice in my head said, "You must make an album based on the original planet of the ape films" I followed that voice and worked diligently to complete the album." Maybe Human
"During this one [the EP], I’ve been sober, and I just felt like a stronger person that had finally dealt with a lot of stuff. In particular, the “regrouping” of myself mentally and physically lent a hand to diving further into more technical aspects of production, and I think the results reflect that." - Quizboy
