Posted 31 Dec 2020 in News

Slow Burning Car is an American band from Los Angeles, California that specializes in a metal sound that incorporates elements of garage rock with a bit of punk sensibility. “Public Cynic” is a song from their upcoming album, Projection, which as of today has no release date set yet. “Public Cynic” starts out with a speech and from the get-go it becomes obvious this song has some political and societal roots. “Public Cynic” is a gritty and heavy mid-tempo song that takes a deep dive into the counter-culture surrounding those who believe that shelter-in-place, stay at home and social distancing measures as a response to COVID-19 were inappropriate. Overall, the song is very reminiscent of heavier politically charged songs...

Posted 31 Dec 2020 in News

June 13, 2020 – Slow Burning Car turns up the volume once again with their stirring release of Public Cynic. This daring effort by the Los Angeles rock band is equally brilliant as it is sinister. The musical structure put forth by Slow Burning Car is something that rock purists will find nothing less than endearing. Public Cynic features an oasis of rugged guitar riffs and hard-hitting live drumming, which comprises much of Slow Burning Car’s commitment to quality rock music above gimmick-type musings. Public Cynic encompasses visions of protest, a timely topic in view of the recent public outrage and reaction to the death of George Floyd and the subject of police brutality. Slow Burning Car’s Public Cynic, however,...

June 11, 2020 – Slow Burning Car goes for an early 90s alternative rock swagger with the powerful “Public Cynic”. The live spirit of the song further lends to its infinite charm. Vocals are snarled with just the right level of attitude. Everything about the piece deserves to be blasted – from the blown-out quality of the guitars to the physicality of the drums. With nods to Kim Deal’s The Breeders project, the work has an infinitely catchy quality. Nor do they ever let up, choosing instead to roam with a sense of pure unbridled freedom. The din of a live audience sets the tone for the work. From there they really blast forward with a righteous fury. Attention to...

Posted 31 Dec 2020 in Reviews

June 2020 – Slow Burning Car is a band with a focus on creating music that blurs the lines between alt-metal and alternative rock. Their most recent release, “Public Cynic” channels the swagger of bands like the Sex Pistols, and the technical proficiency of bands such as Guns N Roses, as well as Velvet Revolver and The Damned. The song has a catchy guitar riff, which has a darkness that almost reminds me of Nevermind-era Nirvana, going for a more direct feel. The drums are pounding and fierce, going for a truly special and distinctive edge that goes along with the vocals. What I love about this song is that it blurs the lines between punk, grunge, hard rock,...
