[ New Music ] Slow Burning Car – release single “Soul Crimes”
Artist: Slow Burning Car Single: “Soul Crimes” Album: Defection
Weezer, Guns n’ Roses, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine… these are just a few of the huge rock bands based out of Los Angeles. Today we set our sights on a band on the rise, LA rockers Slow Burning Car.
Slow Burning Car takes inspiration from English alternative rock bands Swervedriver and New Model Army. They are also Influenced by American rock bands Queens of the Stone age, and Black Sabbath. The band is made up of Troy Spiropoulos on lead vocals and bass, Adam Idell on drums and backing vocals, along with Tommy Marcel on guitar and backing vocals.

This September, Slow Burning Car released their highly anticipated fourth album, “Defection”. You can hear the Ozzy Osbourne similarities in singer Troy’s vocals, and the heavy melodic sound from their explosive single “Soul Crimes”.

Without delay “Soul Crimes” takes off with crisp guitar, warm steady bass, and a classic rock beat into the verses, the band changing dynamically to put a spotlight on vocals. “It seems the more you give the more they take, a losing battle you fight everyday”. The world can seem chocked full of negativity, disappointment, and insincerity at times. Often we can find ourselves being put down by loved ones, or told to keep expectations low. Slow Burning Car is here to remind us that we have all the tools for success and happiness right within ourselves. “They underestimate your sense, the heart that beats beneath your breast, I see it all inside of you”.

Tommy Marcel takes the lead halfway through the song with a notable, impassioned guitar solo. Adam Idell and Troy Spiropoulos holding down the rhythm. Spriopoulos with perfect timing and tone on the bass, perfectly complementing Idell’s tight hi-hat pattern on the drums.

“Soul Crimes” would be the perfect companion to a late night drive into the city, a friday night house party soundtrack, or your afternoon pick me up playlist. Keep a lookout for more tracks from “Deception”.
