Here is a beat heavy, electro-fuzz anthem from New Jersey-based electro-pop band Blood Cultures.
Coming off the release of Blood Cultures’ freshly announced (as of today) album ‘Oh Uncertainty! A Universe Despairs‘, the New Jersey four-piece have put together such a fantastic single.
To coincide with the release of their brand new single, Blood Cultures have released a manifesto, which explains what they want to achieve on their musical journey.
Speaking on their ideology, Blood Cultures explain how they would like to “create genuine, emotive art for individuals to connect with in a unique way.”
“We choose to not publicly reveal any information about the project and ourselves in order to effectively carry out this mission: We believe that disclosing our personalities, politics, alignments, intentions, orientations, etc could detach the listener further from the personal connection that they have made with the music.”
“We must support and respect the unique truths and individual meanings that the listeners generate themselves from the tracks and the visuals,” the band continues. “Art is not what the artist intends it to be, but rather what you make of it. If we are simply the vessels, who are we to take meaning away from something by imposing our own views, biasis, intentions, etc?”
Speaking on listeners of their music specifically, Blood Cultures explains how they want their “listeners to find their own significance in the pieces by looking inwardly and seeking the answers within themselves rather than from us: disclosing the context of the work could shatter the individual’s distinct value of the piece that they have created for themselves.”
“There is only one true meaning, and it is that which the listener has concluded is their truth,” the band explains.
If you feel the music, you understand it, you understand us, and just like that, we are connected. Regardless of our potential differences, we are there together, in the same emotional landscape, through this music. And that is worth preserving.
Blood Cultures is an interesting project yet to reveal their full potential. Stay tuned for more closer to the release of their forthcoming record.
