Amorphous by Icon For Hire

Amorphous Icon For Hire Cover

Amorphous is an experience built on soaring melodies, powerful beats, clever lyrics, and a welcome return to a soundscape shimmering through electronic beds while staying rooted in guitars. Icon For Hire portrays a world where our wounds do not lie in opposition to our strength, suggesting that maybe the two are inextricably linked. Maybe in all the unformed, amorphous moments of our lives, there is grace for all the conflicting truths about ourselves to coexist.

German Alt-Rock Activism: “In Too Deep” by Arson

In Too Deep Arson

Trying to pinpoint exactly who German rock band Arson sounds like is no easy task. Put together a seamless blend of alternative rock (a la 12 Stones), classic rock (Theocracy and Stryper), symphonic rock (Red and Starest), and a dash of just straigh up metal, and you have the sound that Arson produces in their single "In Too Deep." While there is still refinement to be had in the sound, the overall delivery hits in all the right places.
