Watch: Kylesa – “We’re Taking This”

Kylesa - Ultraviolet

Savannah sludge heads Kylesa are known for mixing psychedelic washes of thick guitars with a penchant for metal virtuosity and have even thrown in some raggedly pulled together pop melodicism in their songs from time to time. On the latest single “We’re Taking This” from their upcoming record Ultraviolet, the band doesn’t disappoint. Chugging guitars and a chest thumping rhythm section mix with singer/guitarist Phillip Cope’s vocals to create the perfect soundtrack for some late night demolition.  But there is more to the song that its superficial anthemic-ness (though that would be enough on its own). Look beneath the swirls of casually tossed off guitar notes, pounding drums, and angular bass thuds, and you’ll hear a band who relishes in picking apart the conventions of the genre within which they work and doing it effortlessly.  Ultraviolet is due out May 28th via Season of Mist.
