GRAHAM REPULSKI drops his debut 7″ on the fairly new Big School Records which is based out of Philadelphia. “My Color is Red” is his first release since his full-length album “Into An Animal Together” in the summer.
Graham Repulski, hailing from Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, brings us his own strand of rough-around-the-edges indie-pop, featuring crunchy, dazed-out guitar textures and blown-out vocals that almost sound like they’re trying to hide something (other than the fact that they’re insufferably whiny). These four songs all stick to a similar formula with their lo-fi and alternative rock vibes, meaning that there are no sudden surprises to be found here. Thoughtful lyrics tell a story in a song like “Mommy’s Dreaming,” while sharp and dagger-like guitar licks continue to swirl and create that rough and edgy feeling. Aside from these edgy feelings, the notion of dream-pop also manages to come through in a feather-light track like “Everyone Likes My Three Dollar Shirt.” Guitars sound dense, jangly, and dirty but still somehow manage to produce the feeling that you’re floating up in the clouds – a surely strange but ultimately fitting combination.
Check out the songs below and don’t forget to snag a 7″ – there’s only 200 to go around on red vinyl!
