It’s a composition that explores the fundamentals of dream pop and shoegaze but also continuously touches the base of other complementary music genres. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some of the finest properties of post-rock, psych-pop, soft-rock, or similar music styles. Satan’s Fried Scapegoat Breakfast irresistibly levitates between the slightly reverby, psychedelic ambiances and catchy pop orchestrations. You’ll also hear how the sixties pop-rock, seventies psychedelia, or eighties Brit-pop inspired Eric Alexandrakis to write, compose, and record such a mesmerizing number that unquestionably bursts with brilliant ideas and impressive musicianship.

Alexandrakis achieved this psychedelic ambiance by implementing calm, soothing, nearly cathartic vocal performance over cleverly assembled chord progressions. The artist drenched the vocal channel in a reasonable portion of reverb, echo, and chorus, but you’ll also notice these effects on other instruments along the way. Of course, there are some ear-appealing piano, synth, keyboard leads, themes, and background ambiances that uplift those chord progressions on an entirely new level, while the heavy electronic beats are solely responsible for all the grooviness and dynamics. The interference of psychedelic ambiance intensifies as the song progresses, but the calmness remains intact from scratch to finish. It’s nearly mindblowing how each segment bursts with so many impressive sonic maneuvers that will force you to spin Satan’s Fried Scapegoat Breakfast over again. There are no doubts Eric Alexandrakis is one of the best artists on the contemporary dream pop scene. You should check out this composition and the remainder of his discography as soon as possible. The single is available on all streaming platforms.
