After years of writing and tweaking, the Nashville-based indie rock duo Eric Vattima (vocalist) and Jacob Redding (guitarist/producer) unleashed their project Thankmelater dropping their debut single Shutmedown on the 28th of April, 2023. Mixing their influences with a modern sound, Thankmelater will take you on a cool trip. Let me tell you more about it.
Thankmelater opened Shutmedown with a deep melancholic soft melody that made me pay attention to every word Eric was saying and follow every note Jacob played. It has a heart-hitting flow that keeps on getting stronger with its smooth progression, with a sound that gets denser as we move on, using modern elements with emotional alternative influences in a unique mix that shows character and vision. The vocal melody has diverse, everchanging deliveries that boosted the song’s dynamics as well as the pounding beats did while staying true to their mood and extremely relatable lyrics. Shutmedown is one of those songs that organically build an emotional bond with the listener, offering the screams you wanna scream and reflecting the voices inside your head in an artistic expressive form.
Thankmelater showed their writing skills and musicianship in Shutmedown. Producing a catchy tune with a dynamic solid structure with hooking twists and turns and solid arrangement. Looking forward to more from Thankmelater, keep on rocking. Cheers!
