Happy Monday! Hope you’ve all enjoyed this week! I know I did- Harry Potter 7.2 let me have it at the theater. More on that later. . . Today is all about the music. This week’s MM artist seamlessly joins rock angst and electronica. It’s the fresh, alternative sound of AWOLNATION.
This alternative rock band is the solo project of Aaron Bruno (Under the Influence of Giants). Bruno initially started AWOLNATION after Red Bull Records approached him in 2009. After several false starts, their first full-length album, Megalithic Symphony, was released in March.
On the first single, “Sail,” Bruno’s moody wail screeches above a driving electrobeat. It’s the album opener, and sets a fierce tone for the rest of this funky album. Check out the video for “Sail:”
Funkaaaaay! I first heard “Sail” on an episode of “So You Think You Can Dance” and was hooked. Check out the rest of Megalithic Symphony. It rocks.
“Guilty Filthy Soul”
“Burn It Down”
You can pick up AWOLNATION’s stuff on Amazon or iTunes. Let me know what you think! Have a great week, folks! xx
