“Pit,” the latest single from LA based psychedelic punk band Bus, imbues the psych rock energy with a focus on a more twisted sound.
The first moments of the sound are reminiscent of a King Gizzard track with its high pitched guitar, then quickly shifts into a distorted and menacing lull. The track expands with the introduction of relaxed and mellow vocals that contradict the harsher production.
But by the 2:20 mark into the song, everything changes. Every aspect before is suddenly left behind without warning. It’s more intense and raw and features a heavy and overwhelming amount of bass, even overshadowing the drums. This doesn’t create a negative sound though, instead it becomes a welcoming change into this new dark, perverted punk rock.
