Toronto natives Holy Fuck released their new album Bird Brains on July 21, 2017. The short and sweet four track album is packed full of energy and new age electronic sounds. Holy Fuck brought new listeners and diehard fans together with their fun and fresh sound.
Kicking off the album is the title track “Bird Brains” – an upbeat tune ready to make listeners move and groove. The song creates a feeling of relaxation and high spirits, with the muffled vocals and relaxed tempo – attention-grabbing. From the smooth flow to the intricate mixing, “Bird Brains” leaves listeners wanting more.
The second song “Chains” has quite a different vibe from the rest of the album. A mysteriously haunting beat mixed with futuristic, almost otherworldly sounds makes this tune one to remember. Creating a feeling of urgency and an atmosphere of obscurity, Holy Fuck hit the nail on the head with this seven-minute masterpiece.
Raymond, another track from Holy Fuck, is one that instantly grabs listeners attention. Keeping with the idea of creating a relaxing atmosphere – but this time with a more jazzy vibe is what helps to bring the album full circle. While the consistent and intricate beat plays, it is accented with notes that are light and airy, giving listeners a sense of peace and calm.
Wrapping up Bird Brains is “New Dang” – a new age dance tune sure to have listeners on their feet. Unquestionably groovy, Holy Fuck gives us a wavy beat with accents to really make it pop. Returning with the subtle vocals really caps this song off to be a high energy, club ready tune.
Bird Brains is an album that gives listeners everything they want while keeping them wanting more. Holy Fuck gave an array of tune in the short and sweet, four song album. Every song gave off a different vibe, all while flowing together to create an epic soundtrack.
