clash bowley Releases “Delusions of Cool”

Delusions of Cool is an album released by clash bowley. The artist has released a string of albums in recent years. Delusions of Cool is a twelve-song album and builds upon a palette of sounds that define the artist’s sound.

“Lacking Resolution” is the opener and one of the first things that stuck out to me was the dynamics. The drums have a consistency to them which is rare and I found everything else was of creating this morphing ebb and flow. bowley sings with a melancholy yet stoic delivery: “I fell apart / Could find no restitution / I lost my heart / Lacking resolution / Longing failed / When measured against you / Truth unveiled / Must be always true.”

The next song “The Airship” configures to a similar architecture although on this song the drums take on different textures and tones throughout the song. It’s a catchy tune and joyfully explores the terrain with a fine comb. “Retrochronation” is a great one. I found this song haunting and minimalistic. The vocals sound like they are close to you. There’s an intimacy here but there’s also a sense of mystery. This feeling continues with “The Window” which isn’t too far from the atmosphere and feeling you get when listening to a band like Radiohead. bowley is able to make this crawl in the best way possible. I enjoyed the drums especially how they faded in at different points. 

“For Sammy” brings a different type of energy. It’s fast, kinetic and bowley displays a versatile vocal style on this. There are harmonies and arguably the catchiest vocal hook on the album. bowley sings “I gotta run, jump, run, jump,  catch that spring.”

bowley continues with “A Series” and “Love Me” which both have their high points but I have to say “Chosen” felt like a high point. There are some really inventive approaches to the design of this song. I thought the way the vocals blended on the chorus was fantastic. There’s a wide range of emotion and lyrically this song was one of the easier ones to interpret. bowley sings “And so I live my thread /Chained to ancestral fate it was for me they bled / And I am filled up with their hate I cried, I wept, I pled.”

There are some great songs but “Desire” was another standout track. On this track bowley combines a slick beat that sometimes sounds like it’s reversed with a modulation. bowley is in top form here. There’s another inventive beat on “Three Times the Rule” and a unique blend of energy on the closer “Desert Song.”

I noticed on the Bandcamp page this is bowley’s latest release. bowley seemed to be making a monthly album which was impressive in many different ways. Is this release his last for the foreseeable future or will we hear more from the artist soon?  This album displayed a lot of originality and I found it to be enjoyable from the start so I hope there’s a lot more to come from bowley.
