Downy – Haze Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising post-rock band; DOWNY, from JAPAN. We have reviewed their brilliant song; HAZE, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Downy is a promising melodic post-rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about a month ago with their captivating song; Haze, off from their latest long-play album; Untitled, which was released in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2013. As far as I understand, they are one of the most respected rock bands from Japan. I can sense this by looking at their discography first, their image, videos, and by listening to their music. They are unique, quite successful, and also inspiring with their artistic way of doing things. Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
I can’t say I am a big fan of this specific music, yet I am open to good music by inspiring people. Downy is an excellent example for me here. There are many things we can expect for a band or artist in general. For me personally, I expect them to be creative and innovative in every single thing they do. It’s upsetting to see tons of bands out there making music and never thinking of being creative about anything else such as its video or artwork. We live in an era where its no longer possible for someone to become successful by only focusing one of these many different aspects. As I have mentioned above, Downy immediately caught my full attention with the character in their music. The overall feeling is so tense, so chaotic, it reminded me of our modern era with its vibe and the music video. The music is so well composed, it channels your attention to the actual message than the music itself. It’s simply genius! Imagine listening to a song that makes you think of the 2006 Fifa World Cup. That would be insane right? How would the 2006 World Cup sound like? Which instruments shout fit in this mission? To me, city life in our modern era sounds like Haze.
The structure of the song is so good, it flows so flawlessly from the beginning to the end. The band is not only showing potential with their songwriting skills, but also with their instrumentation and understanding of music. I mean, after listening to this song a few times, I can easily say that everybody can write music, but not everybody can write stuff like this. This is just another level in songwriting ladies and gentlemen, this is Downy…
Technically, Haze has top-class standards in every way. Everything sounds super clean, clear, very well recorded, engineered, balanced, mixed, mastered, and in perfect harmony. The character of the music here is phenomenal. It’s like the ultimate combination of all these instruments. The producer has done an amazing job here and I am blown away by his work. I am not an expert on the technical side of this, yet I can only imagine how challenging it would be to work with such music. It leaves you breathless with its standards. Brilliant job, truly…
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am super impressed by Downy. I have the utmost respect for everything about Japan, and I am delighted by my discovery of these remarkable gentlemen. Haze is definitely one of the most characteristic songs of 2020 for me!
