The Confusions – 1664
Genre: Punk, New wave, Indie Rock
Rock music has found perfection a few times over. There are enough versions of perfect sounds, crafted in just the right manner for modern audiences to listen in awe and young artists to want to gift the world something equally as alluring.
It’s no mean feat either, and rock musicians didn’t arrive at this state of grace by coincidence. Any scholar of rock history will tell you that there is plenty of garbage that you need to sort through in order to reach something worthwhile. Rock’s many permeations and its continued metamorphosis are what have allowed these remarkable forms of music to exist.
The Confusions have witnessed this excellence of human expression and were ready to carve it apart and reassemble it into their language in 1664. The tune is really a complex strategy that aims to marry punk, 60s rock, and even modern indie. All of these forms achieved an incredible sort of tightrope balance. Now, it’s The Confusions’ turn to dare to reach something of similar effortless beauty.
