The latest featured stream at Scene Point Blank comes from Sorespot. Titled Gifts of Consciousness, the record releases on April 3 on Midnight Werewolf Records and showcases distorted, harsh pop on the surface with subtle melodies that peak through the feedback.
The Chicago, IL quartet released the album between 2017-2019 with a simple theme:
After finally getting everything tracked after various member changes, we are all ready to share this record with the world. It's concept is simple; witness and acknowledge the things wrong in your life, and move on from them peacefully with confidence. The title itself was taken from an interview with someone who had died, and was then brought back. Gifts of Consciousness to me means that everything, whether good or bad, is a gift to your consciousness to help you learn and grow. Lyrically we mostly fixate on situations that bring us anger or discomfort, although there are also songs that incorporate feeling thankful or finally understanding a situation we went through. No matter what we write about though, we try to end it with optimism. The song "Meet You" though, that song is specifically about meeting Big Foot and becoming buds with it.
Order the record now from Midnight Werewolf.
