Justin Jennings and Joseph Vitterito comprise the project FLAUNT, formed via social media. Their first album, CODON, was “mainly instrumental turntablism”, with Jennings’ vocal and guitar additions adding to a standout sound. Their most recent project aims to enhance the sounds of CODON with lyrical content and more engaging song structures, implementing both electronic and organic sounds throughout the 18-track release entitled RAVE NOIR.
A released track from RAVE NOIR, out March 18th, begins with an ominous dystopian synth pad, barren-sounding in its enveloping creepiness. Exotic chimes coincide with vocals and bouncy percussion after the one-minute mark, with crunchy guitars and various vocal layers combining for a focus on swampy rock. The progression from electronic ambience to crunchy rock is well-done, a preview of the group’s intended versatility throughout their upcoming release.
