Prize Horse "Under Sound"


Prize Horse ushers in a new sonic chapter with their eagerly awaited debut LP, Under Sound, slated to drop February 16th on New Morality Zine. The trio's musical evolution takes flight with ethereal and fuzzy tones, departing from the grittier layers of their previous 2021 Welder EP. Recorded in Loveland, Colorado, again in collaboration with Corey Coffman of Gleemer, the album encapsulates Prize Horse's journey through airy soundscapes, delving into the emotional nuances of life's rapid changes.

A true sign of a band's maturation is their ability to show that their strength as a group stems from all members working in unity, and Prize Horse has demonstrated this truth throughout this 10-song listen. The record evidently draws inspiration from the band members' favorite artists and contemporaries, yet it avoids mirroring those influences directly in its sonic presentation. The band navigates various genres, establishing a unique musical identity that is distinctly their own. In his lyrics, Jake Beitel chooses a subtle approach to depict the challenges of life's transformations poetically rather than directly. Consequently, he possesses the skill to craft imagery, leaving room for interpretation by the listener. This reveals that Jake not only has found comfort in his lyrical expression but also in his vocal delivery. He adeptly maintains a harmonious balance, blending mild harmonies with gently delivered lines that captivate the audience. Musically, the band persists in utilizing thick bass lines and fuzzed-out guitars as the foundation of their songs, but they have integrated more nuanced sounds into their composition. The songs exude an organic quality, deriving vitality from the pulsating heartbeat of bass riffs to the deliberate and precise rhythm of drums that effortlessly drive the whole thing forward.

Under Sound promises an atmospheric and dynamic exploration, where the band's growth is seamlessly woven into each note, inviting listeners into a captivating fusion of fully fleshed out heavy rock and emotional depth.
