Last year marked the release of the debut long player by Sri Aurobindo, a behemoth of a record called Cave Painting. The LP explored the transcendentally deep side of the Baltimore crew with plenty of pop tendencies and psychedelic wails. The band has since gone on to record a handful of new gems, two of which are displayed on a new Friends Records seven inch.
“Eyes” is the fiercest Sri Aurobindo song to date. It was recorded by Chris Freeland at his Beat Babies studio outside of Balitmore, a sanctuary that has hosted such acts as Lower Dens, Wye Oak, and Oxes. Lead singer Brandon Arinoldo's vocals are as true to his intensity as they've ever been, as Freeland recorded Arinoldo standing up with no microphone stand and in full action as opposed to being more confined like past efforts.
The result is a skull-crushing new banger which channels an inner-rage that's sure to wipe any sonic palate clean. Early in the track it's tough to believe that “it's not your fault“, as the impending doom seems quite imminent. But as the track moves forward the stark haze turns to cosmic dust, and you are lifted to a much more forgiving place.
The new seven inch is limited to 300 copies, grip it right here.
