CD Review: Chronosynclastic

The Prids


Velvet Blue Music

Rating: 4

With a dreamy and distorted texture and feel, The Prids take delicate harmonies and instrumental compilations to construct sweet swaying music.

Similar to the beautiful yet melancholy remnants of the industrial landscapes of their hometown Portland, Ore., The Prids create music that evokes slight undertones of sadness and yearning. Yet hidden within certain tracks, the band sneaks in heavy drums and pulsing guitar rhythms that balance out the general sound of Chronosynclastic.

The Prids have been making music for over a decade now, and they’ve continued to keep it simple and utterly sweet. With soaring vocals and harmonies between David Frederickson and Mistina La Fave, The Prids have a delicate yet hazy quality that is great mood music to get lost in.

Give these tracks a listen: “Break,” “Desolate” and “In the Fall”

For Fans Of: The Smiths, The Smashing Pumpkins, Built to Spill
