Repeat are a newly formed alternative / stoner rock band from Sweden consisting of members Torbjörn Hallberg on guitars and vocals, Johan Holmberg on drums and Matthias Belin on bass, and Repeat is the band’s debut single, released on 08/09/2023.
And what a debut this is!
Kicking off with some distorted feedback, the track soon erupts into a frenzy of stoner, sludge, and grunge rock!
The guitars are heavy, with riffs coming at the listener from all angles, and distortion really gives the track its fuzzy vibe. The drumming is energetic and frantic and the meaty basslines that come through really hold the song together. Musically, this track is a masterpiece. With melodies and hooks that really pull the listener in, this is a really catchy tune, and the listener will be humming this for the rest of the day once hearing it.
Distortion is used once again on the vocals, creating a great atmosphere to the song that is raw and full of angst. With backups vocals in much the same vein there really is a great depth to this track and the energy that is emitted by all the members involved is immense. Repetitive lyrics add to the catchiness of the song and the only gripe I had with the song is that it just wasn’t long enough!
This is a fantastic track that will appeal to a wide range of listeners, from punk rock to alternative rock, stoner rock and hard rock. Be sure to check out the band Repeat and see what you think for yourself!
