Negative Lovers – .38 Loves Me/Flooded Eye
by Ken Jenie
Negative Lovers (formerly Denial) is a band quickly, if not already, getting attention of many independent music fans here in Indonesia. With a record that has been in the works for years now, it’s great to finally see an official release from the group. What we have above is a music video featuring their song, Flooded Eye, which is released digitally via Picture in My Ear Records Bandcamp and (according to the description) and as a b-side to .38 Loves me.
The music feels a lot less abrasive on record than their high-frequency drenched live performances. With the low-ends & melodies becoming more apparent, the details of their compositions that are often submerged under the wave of noise are now visible, revealing rather elaborate arrangements. A treat to the ear (and for the colorful video a treat to the eyes), be sure to give the group a listen and purchase their music via the link below.
