Metrophobia – Words Unsaid

Taking the world by storm since 2021, Metrophobia is the Swiss/Spanish pairing of Markus Gmür on vocals and acoustic guitar and José Garrido on guitar, bass, and drums programming. They are an indie / alternative rock band who have taken their influences from the independent 90’s scene, combining the likes of alternative rock, noisy pop, indie rock, grunge and punk rock from bands such as Pixies, Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Pavement.

Words Unseen is their latest release and is a well-rounded track with good melodies and a slightly darker production. The mix of dark pop, emotional lyrics, distorted guitars, intense drum rhythms and melodic bass (all from just the two of them!) has given the combination of genres a modern touch to create a great original track.

This is a hauntingly beautiful track, and the feelings of sadness and melancholy are stunningly portrayed. The guitar work is awesome and energetic, the bass line is polished and tidy, the percussion is bombastic, and the vocals are poignant.

This is a great track! Well done!
