“Bittersweet” is the upcoming single taken from the newest DIE SO FLUID album titled “One Bullet from Paradise” out later this year.
Die So Fluid incorporate the engorged power of metal with an energetic post-punk approach and the tight depth & reflection of grunge. In fact, their output is largely post-grunge rock ‘n’ roll.
The trio first formed in 2001. In 2004 they released a debut album — Spawn of Dysfunction — sales were almost entirely based on an extensive tour of the UK, during which they performed admirably and relentlessly.
On 25th July 2016 the band announced that drummer Al Fletcher had passed away following a bout of double pneumonia.
However, the remaining members of the band [Grog on bass + Mr Drew on guitars] pledged they would continue the band journey and complete their fifth album.
Grog explained the thought behind “Bittersweet” — “[the single] makes a statement about embracing yourself as you are, thorns ‘n’ all…”
Not surprisingly, this single has a relentless, effervescently thick bass.
Then a fluorescence of squishy and squelchy guitars takes over. There is also a squeaky synthesizer sound somewhere, perhaps in middle distance.
The voice is powerful and proud without being unnecessarily aggressive…
The melodic contours are filled with creative energy. This is a first class number.
