Strange Groove is a very unique band from the Bay Area in Califorina that happens to be of the experimental progressive rock persuasion. Their three track EP, Turning Leaf is all about the connection between consciousness to subconsciousness.
The vocals of the singer are something that genuinely stands out on some level. They sound wonderful, when you can hear them. Perhaps its the style, but it often sounds like his voice is being drowned out by the instrumentals some. This is primarily on the first track, "Eclipse" though.
Each track, while they go together quite well, are all very different from one another. Everything has a vibe all its own and that's wonderful! It shows a lot of talent when someone can make an EP with a similar sound that also shows off other genres as well. "Aurora" at times actually was slightly reminiscent of "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica, but not all at once.
"Red Tide" was interesting. While its still progressive rock, it also had an upbeat sort of punk undertone feel to it and that definitely was something that stood out a lot. Its impressive to hear genres mix, and still mix well.
Clearly, this is a hard EP to explain, so why don't you just listen for yourself? Its well worth the chance. If you'd like to hear more from Strange Groove, you can check them out on Reverbnation, Facebook, and Twitter.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
