Language – Game Piece

posted by: Olinger New Music Daily

NYC-based Language cue up some speedball revolver riffs with a highbrow twist. While their tunes often channel old school punk vibes while their tight narratives are imbued with scholarly insight into world history and socio-political functions.

Language‘s Charles Sloan (bass, vox) shares, “I started with of a couple ideas: a middle school project where I had to decide what I would take with me on a spaceship to a new world, and the story of Aeneas, one of the mythical founders of Rome, who took his father, statues of his gods, and his son and lead them out of a burning Troy. It’s all reduced to a few shouted phrases, which is where the desperation and irrationality enter.”
