Stop scrolling – Thumbstopper is the must listen to song of the day. Today, experimental artist Brandon Ares shares their shapeshifting and industrial new anthem ‘LOWER THAN BEFORE’.
New York-based multi-hyphenate Brandon Ares is pummelling traditional conceptions of genre in their new claustrophobic anthem ‘LOWER THAN BEFORE’.
A forward-thinking and unconventional cut that pulls from a myriad of sounds, the record serves as a cathartic exercise in letting go. Melding their love of performance and visual art into a video they co-directed, Brandon’s penchant for industrial and incendiary sound palettes is in full display in the monochrome offering.
Additionally, the multi-media piece hits the sweet spot between grand and cinematic instrumentation and intimate songwriting, simultaneously opening an exciting new chapter for the artist.
