Ego – Rats, Snakes & Spiders (2011)

EgoSMELL LIKE THE ‘90S

Serbia, internationally better known for wars and Novak Djokovic than its music scene, is the place where this blog originates. Surprise, surprise, we have good rock bands (but poor music industry). One of the bright young bands comes from south of Serbia, a city called Nis.

I heard EGO for the first time over a year ago. It was their debut gig and it was a part of a benefit concert. Their own songs sounded great and it was the first time for me to hear a band that’s from Nis and is playing mainstream alternative rock inspired by Muse and Kings of Leon. But they also have that powerful ‘90s vibe and female vocal, so I like to compare them to Garbage and The Cardigans.

“Rats, snakes & spiders” is their fourth published song (online, without label) that represents the band members’ personal phobias of the animals mentioned. Main riff sounds spooky and sets the dark ambiance throughout the whole song. Unlike their previous tracks, “Rats, snakes & spiders” has a more advanced solo guitar and main vocals sound better than ever.

Ego is just three girls, two guys and really close friends that make their music in the basement and wait for their big break. Well, they have the potential and I wish them all the best.

MIRIŠE NA DEVEDESETE

Srbija, u svetu više poznata po ratovima i Novaku Đokoviću nego po muzičkoj sceni, je mesto iz kog potiče blog. Gle, iznenađenja, i mi imamo dobre rok bendove (ali oskudnu muzičku industriju). Jedan od primamljivih mladih bendova dolazi sa juga Srbije, iz Niša.

Ego sam prvi put čuo pre više od godinu dana. Bila je to njihova debi svirka i to kao deo humanitarnog koncerta. Autorske pesme su im zvučale odlično i bilo je to prvi put za mene da čujem bend koji je iz Niša a svira mejnstrim alternativni rok inspirisan bendovima Muse i Kings of Leon. Ali oni imaju i moćan vajb devedesetih i ženski vokal, pa stoga volim da ih poredim sa Garbage i The Cardigans.

“Rats, snakes & spiders“ je njihova četvrta objavljena pesma (onlajn, bez izdavača) koja predstavlja lične strahove članova bendova od pomenutih životinja. Glavni rif zvuči jezivo i daje mračan ton celoj pesmi. Za razliku od njihovih prethodnih numera, “Rats, snakes & spiders“ ima napredniju solo gitaru i glavni vokal zvuči nikad bolje.

Ego su samo tri devojke, dva momka i bliski prijatelji koji stvaraju muziku u podrumčetu i čekaju svoju veliku šansu. Imaju potencijal i ja im želim sve najbolje.
