"Architects", well what can I say?
I was never expecting one day, I'd be writing about these lads.
So before my assignment is revoked and I'm eating mozzarella sticks and crying to myself. LET'S DO THIS!
"Architects", formed in 2004 in Brighton by Twins Dan and the late Tom Searle, at this point Sam was not their vocalist.
However! Let's do the time warp to 2020 (the worst year ever).
They have dropped their new Song "Animals", A new sound.
Upon listening we hear what sounds like a computerised sound with backwards vocals, until this knarley drop just comes from no where, it's a short one, but it's beautiful.
Sam's cleans are immaculate and I'm so happy they're here more than usual.
The verse just goes straight back into pit mode! With the phrase "We're just a bunch of F***ing animals!" Everything about this song - makes me so happy with the new era. From the heavy stomp guitar riffs, to the marching glitch effects, to the linkin park style breakdown with the blaring alarm - RIGHT BACK INTO THE CHORUS.
This Brighton 5 piece is insane! I could see a Bring me the horizon tour with these lads soon. Following the previous LP "Holy Hell" comparing something like "Doomsday" to "animals" this is something fresh, this could potentially be the sound that stays for a while and I for one will love it!
Anyway "For those that wish to Exist" is available everywhere February 26th 2021! Go pre-order it at: https://www.architectsofficial.com/
