The sonic vision of Blake Alexander, the artist known as Gallowayyys, is one of relentless innovation. With a determination to thrust past the fringe of trendy music, Alexander's newest album 'Angels with Fangs' is a hypnotic fusion of genres, styles, and influences.
The opener with the same name "Angels with Fangs" showcases Blake Alexander's unparalleled skills as a producer and sound designer. The track is an aural assault, its screaming synths and warped vocals violently grabbing you and dragging you along on a harrowing ride with no chance of escape until the crushing finale. Every detail of the intricate production is meticulously crafted, the components interlocking with machine-like precision to create a twisted form of order out of the churning chaos roiling under the shimmering surface of the soundscape.
" Heart Throb (ft. Sterling VanDamme)" highlights Gallowayyys' vocals and unique compositional style. The track deftly toggles between soaring highs and throbbing lows, incorporating varied electronic elements along with Gallowayyys' manipulated vocals. "Tyler Durden" follows, opening with Gallowayyys' precise crooning before building into a sultry, shimmering groove. Twinkling soundscapes and irresistible allure prevail. "Crazy Like A Fox" showcases the range of the album, a whistling bass melody and hip hop-infused beat forming the backdrop for Gallowayyys' reverberating vocals, which imbue the track with more flavor.
Then there's "Bathsheba (Redux)", a whirlwind of charismatic delivery and refreshing energy. Gallowayyys' words cascade with a casually stylish flow, creating an experience sure to draw smiles. The album’s climax arrives in the form of "Buried Alive". A reprieve from the breakneck pace of the preceding tracks, the song adopts a more leisurely tempo reminiscent of contemporary rock.
