A while back I wrote many articles about a band called Dekades. You might remember (if you’ve been reading this site for a long while) I was really stoked about that band. Well, sadly they aren’t together but, thankfully, the singer has continued on with a new project and it’s just as good if not better. Allow me to introduce you to BADTOOTH. Musically it’s dark and pulsating with eerie soundscapes and textures to compliment the goth inspired elements. The latest single “Latent Sea” is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year. The vocals and accompanying music are both soothing and hypnotic mixed with an ethereal vibe. BADTOOTH is the perfect next step into what electronic music today should be. All the right pieces are intact for this to make a huge impact.

In the time that I’ve been writing my little blog, I’ve come across quite a few bands that have given me hope in the future of music. One of those bands is Dekades. These goth rockers have been beyond consistent with all the material they have put out. On their newest EP, the band has stretched out past the norm of most goth/Post Punk bands. They have upped the groove and added another dimension that packs a bit more bounce. The rhythm section of Chris Cano on drums and James Carter on bass have a real knack for pushing the groove to the forefront while guitarist Josh Benson provides dynamic structures upon which multi-instrumentalist Matt Shores applies his ambient textures and all this is tied together with vocalist/guitarist Arden Fisher vocal delivery and conviction. Dekades is definitely a band to be on the lookout for.
One of my favorite new bands Dekades, have released a new single from their upcoming EP. This song entitled “The Drones Are Coming” is pulsating and dripping with groove. The dark goth dance rock they have created is cool and different. Instead of relying on just the electronic side you can really feel the instrumentation in all their songs. Dekades are full of talented musicians and they show off their skills appropriately without taking away from the formula that has made them so good. I can’t wait for their new EP.
The fantastic Dekades just released a new song. Check it out below:
Attacking with subtle goth moments and borderline industrial sounds, Dekades has unleashed another great song in “Red Trolley.” The vocals and melody are unique and powerful. Imagine if Fiona Apple had more range mixed with Beth Gibbons of Portishead. The drums come out heavy with a bit of a Nine Inch Nails vibe attached to them. The guitar accents and ambience amplifies the direction of the song, all the while the heavy distorted bass drives the song. Dekades are on the right track. I personally can’t wait to hear more.
