Seismic Preview: Speed of Sound in Seawater @ The Comet 8/9
This Elk Grove trio (looking for a new bassist), are taking on the road in support of the new 6 song EP Red Version, and thankfully they are making a pit stop at my much beloved Comet Tavern. So props again go to Mamma Casserole and her amazing booking, cause this band is a jewel. Speed of Sound in Seawater (SOSIS) categorizes themselves as pop and no doubt some “math” … and this may be true but they seem to have a secret up their sleeve. The best descriptive way to describe the course of their music, is as if you’re reading a lovely children’s book, and something abruptly goes terribly wrong. It’s like a well-groomed homicidal maniac has busted down the door, and turned this perfect fluffy world upside down. SOSIS have beautiful vocal harmonies, ridiculously fast arpeggios and impressive melodic crooning, but no sooner than you are settling into their very sounds of beautiful and impressive guitar plucking, they turn on you and school you in a crash course of Vocals: Primal Screams 101. With all that said, it’s some of the freshest and most original stuff I have heard in a while, impressive to say the least. So save some steam for Monday night and check this band out, It’s gonna be rad as hell. For a free download of their latest EP click this link.
