Philadelphia’s rock band Residuels – comprised of Justin Pittney (vocals, guitar), Mike Cammarata (drums), and Kyle Garvey (bass) – have been hard at work prepping their new EP Hurricane for us. It’s a rough and tumble collection of four exquisite songs that will have you lacing up your fall boots with confidence. We’ve got your exclusive first listen.
Recorded and co-produced by Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording, Hurricane is just what we needed to roll into the next season. The title track, “Hurricane”, is a heavy rock anthem if there ever existed one, highlighting the raspy, enduring qualities of Pittney’s voice. It unfolds into a more upbeat, instrumental-heavy piece, with composition reminiscent of Foo Fighters greats. “Whatcha Wanna Do?” continues in the same vein, however on a more psychedelic track with the reverb and scream/sing variety of vocals.
“Maligned” starts out with a stunning guitar riff, percussion building in to the piece. It’s held at a slower tempo than its predecessors, the vocals coming down to a loose baritone. “The Castle” rounds out Hurricane, equal parts western soundtrack and slow rock song. It’s a rock ballad, replete with those signature rough vocals Pittney has maintained throughout the EP, and a more melancholic vibe to really bring closure to the release.
