The Bellwether Syndicate
Post-punk from the shadows, The Bellwether Syndicate bring the noise and the feels from their home in sunny Chicago. Taken from the album Vestige and Vigil, this new single and video opens the floodgates and lets the music pour out. Gradually at first, we can be sure of the streams that build up into rivers. It’s taken six good years to finalise this record that’s to be released on Sett Records and Nexilis Records at the same time. The band was formed by William Faith, previously of Christian Death, Mephisto Walz, and Shadow Project, with his wife Sarah Rose Faith aka Scary Lady Sarah. Adding Philly Peroxide on keyboards, Stevyn Grey on drums, and Corey Gorey on the guitar, these hand-picked and hard-working artists complete the set.
Rumbling synths build into a fire of raging guitars, thumping bass, and shuddering drums. The punk-rock sound batters through the wall of anticipation. A smash of harmonies and rhythm bears down on the vocal section, adding pressure and release to the verbs as they rhyme in rhythms and catchy hooks. Driving and punchy ferocity keeps the motion hot as the band explore aspects of the sonic universe pieced together by the intention and the flow. Guitars and drums dominate the facia as synths and bass hold the walls steady under their crumbling vibrations. A vocal line continues to throw the drama into the main arena as frantic and brilliant bars hammer down.
