E.P. Review: Chelsey and the Noise – Blank Frames

38543322_2118899974997718_1054139838074191872_n(1)

Artist: Chelsey and the Noise

EP: Blank Frames

Genre: Electronic/Industrial/EBM/Noise Pop

Rating: 8/10

We’re all aware of the fact that the majority of “Industrial” music is utterly abrasive. Whether it be the chaotic discombobulating harsh noise of “Industrial” pioneers, or the modern “EBM” genre “Industrial” has evolved into with it’s focus on the more tumultuous side of “Electronic” music, it all happily dives into the rabbit hole of nihilism. That’s a good thing when it comes to the genre, but what we don’t get enough of is the representation of how the genre can be catchy, and dare I say…… Poppy? Hayward, CA based duo “Chelsey and the Noise” fearlessly spotlights the catchier side of the genre on their new E.P. Blank Frames. Members Chelsey Hice and Brent “the Noise” Watters create instrumentation that is dark and synth-driven with pulsating percussion and even “Metal” influenced guitars like on the track “Castle.” As chaotic as the instrumentation can get, it never strays away from it’s danceable quality. Singer Chelsey Hice replaces the distorted howls and growls the genre is typically known for with melodic vocals that are sexy, seductive, and vulnerable, showcasing her versatility and myriad of emotions. The final moments of the track “Thick / Clear” delves into gloomy atmospherics with gorgeous piano arpeggios, and this is proof of the duos brilliant craftsmanship that keeps their sound from being one-dimensional. Being only four tracks in length, this E.P. packs quite the punch, and it is sure to get rivetheads on the dance-floor, but simply labeling the duo “Industrial” doesn’t do their music justice, because it is evident that their musical possibilities are endless. This is music that demands your attention, and it can even win over people that typically don’t listen to this kind of music, because the infectious grooves are undeniable. “Chelsey and the Noise” encourages us to dance to doom and gloom.
