 Bubbles Erotica Coming Out May 9th.
Bubbles Erotica
by  Coren E McLeod

I like to be thrilled every once in a great while with music that will take a chance.  These days, I have the pleasure of being exposed to new music from all around this great nation of ours.  However, I do get a little giddy when a Chicago native graces my inbox and my ears are open to a hard core recipe of rock!!!

Bubbles Erotica will be releasing their latest self title album on May 9th, 2017.  Let me just say the guys of Bubbles Erotica for sure took a huge gander on this.  And in my opinion, it is just what the summer season is asking for:  Refreshing, make no regrets with experimenting with a new sound and just go with it.

"In today's cut-throat music scene, it's rare to find a band as self-sufficient, forward-thinking and as conscious about their art as Bubbles Erotica.  In 2010, members Philip Hasso, Bradley Springer, Michael Hasso and and Colin Stone came together to bring something new to the Rock Genre.  From the constantly shifting sounds they create to the lush cover art of their two albums to their expansive, mind-bending videos: this is a band that, while eager to stand-out, doesn't seem pre-occupied with waiting for someone else to get them heard. They're forever creating, always two steps ahead of anyone else in their genre, locally or otherwise."

I have and will always support anything that is Chicago.  This album from Bubbles Erotica just makes me proud.  Giving it a few listens, I found myself gravitating to a few of the tracks.  Track #5 "Wisco Disco" is just a fun filled rock fusion of dance grooves that will get your ass up while throwing your fist in the air uncontrollably.  The hypnotic beat had me just enjoying every second of this song and as Depeche Mode would say, "I just can't get enough..."

Now, let us get serious here:  "Alive" is an emotional roller coaster that literally takes you on a trip of all the feels. Bubbles Erotica makes you want to take a few shots of Marlot to have you experience the regret and pain of life.  Yet, it is fast pace and filled with the awesomeness of lyrics explaining how one needs to move on.  Well done boys!!!!

I am not shy about saying what I like.  "Under Your Wing" reminds me very much of Highly Suspect:  in your face, heart felt reactions, stellar guitar and an unbelievable groove with a haunting undertone.  I just love it!!!!  Swaying back and forth to fast to a chill vibe, Bubbles Erotica plays their cards right on "Under Your Wing" and I will please order another....

Bubbles Erotica will be playing Bottom Lounge in Chicago on May 6th, 2017 with Killing Gods.  Get your ass out to a great venue and a killer release party.  I will be there with bells and whistles on!!!!!

Great job boys!!!! |
