Music Finds #7 – The Visualist from OZ

Music Finds

“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”.

For being someone who plays in a Visual Rock-band, it feels a little out of place that I haven’t had any Visual-bands featured here yet. I think it is because I for a while haven’t really explored the new music coming out, at least not as much as I used to when I was newer in this scene. However, a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon this song by the Japanese band -OZ-. I’ve heard them mentioned before, but I never checked them out until I stumbled on this song.

-OZ-DETOX

This is a song that probably is a good introduction to the mid and late 2000’s VK. It’s both heavy and light, makes use of both clean and aggressive vocals, a catchy melody as its signature, all with a commercial and polished front.
The song starts off with a catchy intro, and my favorite part of this song is easily the intro and the post chorus break down.
The guitars breaths nostalgia.

  • First and foremost, thank you for yet another interesting Music Finds. I have truly enjoyed everyone! Again, I love the diversity. Although I must confess a particular favouritism towards the post-rock Explosions In The Sky. That well and truly off my chest, I’ve been expecting something more visual to appear.

    I will try and write something resembling an opinion even though I’m far more used to analysing text. But as a scholar I simply can’t say I like it either. Why do I like it? I have to concur the intro is very catchy. I got inspired and listened to the other VERSUS songs as well and I quite like the intro to IN RUBBISH too. Back to DETOX, brilliant title I must say, the lyrics don’t make all that much sense to me although they make a lot of sense. I do revel in such ambivalence. To know something and yet not fully grasping it. Or text wise anyway. In life that can be annoying as hell… Digressing. I will say that my favourite part is the Fly Forever bit. It gives me an upbeat feeling of breaking free. Overall I’d say it’s catchy yet remaining a bit of a mystery, I think that’s because of the impression the vocals and lyrics have on me.
