Zilla With Her Eyes Shut

Whisper Whisper (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

I've landed this under prog. Don't expect old-school progressive rock. This is more of an art rock kind of thing. It has some definite weird elements that bring both a psychotic vibe and an art music thing. It overall probably fits under modern pop headings, but those artsy twists are what prompted me to put it under prog. Whatever you call it, though, this is unusual and intriguing music.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 2. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2020.

Track by Track Review
Whisper Whisper
Some weird effects start this in a rather atmospheric way. There are odd whispers in the mix over the top. As the vocals come in, the track seems to walk a line between pop and weird music. There is a real artsy element here even as it shifts to more pop oriented zones. The number has a real twisted, psychotic feeling to it. Yet it also has some hints of reggae and other more mainstream elements at play.
