Ugly Beautiful Delivers Progressive Alt-Rock With A Message
The brand new single dropped from Ugly Beautiful sends out a progressive alt-rock tone with a massive soundscape and layers of guitars coupled with an honest and straightforward lyrical approach and a driving backbone.
"Sunrise" is laced with some beautiful and atmospheric guitar sections and aesthetically feels very cinematic and theatrical as the song swells and breathes with its changes in intensity.
Bass lines and drums are incredibly tight and create some outstanding musical time signatures that border on a math rock sound at times. .
The single has a pretty strong message and it's really about change and how we view the world.
Synths fill the air and bring the song into an even more space rock tonality while drums slam with a wonderfully 'in room' sound giving the entire song a certain warmth.
What's even better is the accompanying video for the track which is completely animated but quite addictive to watch.
The colors of the video even make sense with the music and follow the whole vibe of the track very well.
There was clearly a ton of heart and time that went into both the single and video creation that really comes through heavily and maybe that's part of what makes this so impactful.
It's also relatable of course so there's that too.
Ugly Beautiful has really put there all into this release and the dedication to their work shines bright as the sound and visuals leave a mark and cause you to want to know and hear more.
It's excellent to hear a song in this genre with such a great message and delivered with power behind it.
This is one to really dig into.
