Swiss rock duo Metrophobia recently released a new composition. After Silent Treatment, an excellent full-length with loads of outstanding songs, and a couple of singles such as Easy Love Of Tales and Kryptonite For The Superman, Metrophobia returns with Crazy Heart. These creative musicians continue at the same point where they left with their previous singles but also deliver some new, impressive sonic movements that will unquestionably indulge listeners who’re into the late eighties and early nineties alternative, indie, and shoegaze rock. Crazy Heart will be right up your alley if you’re into Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, Wheel, Ride, and Pixies, but Metrophobia somehow does it in a new, fresh, unique way.
Metrophobia relies on harmonious chants, soothing chord progressions, calmy riffs, warm-sounding basslines, and profoundly dynamic rhythmic sequences. Crazy Heart appears as a perfectly produced rock song that doesn’t have any weak moments. Besides the vividly hearable dominance of alternative rock, Metrophobia implements shoegazey, reverby, and echoic ambiance into this song. However, the shoegaze aspect doesn’t affect the primary sonic direction of the band. It’s nearly mindblowing how the duo combined only the best qualities of the beforementioned genres to achieve that characteristic sound loved by so many music enthusiasts out there. There’s no doubt you’ll love Crazy Heart too. The Single is available for listening on all streaming services.
