Complex thinking and expert sound design come together to provide listeners with escapism that goes to inspiring depths – “Electrify” is the latest song by ZPEXTRE. It’s a stimulating Alternative/Indie dream to lose yourself within.
ZPEXTRE (pronounced “zip-X-tree ”) is a multi-instrumentalist from California. ZPEXTRE is a firm believer in all forms of self-expression that benefit society and the future. He commenced his musical career as a punk rocker and skateboarder before leaning toward the complexity of avant-garde, jazz, and classical music.
He began playing the piano and violin when he was 12 years old and later sang in college. He will dedicate the rest of his life to studying music’s therapeutic benefits and manifestations in our lives. After spending so much of his life immersed in music, it seemed evident that song was the best medium for him.
ZPEXTRE makes a stunning breakthrough, breathtakingly introducing his sound and style with this single. What begins as a pretty straightforward, nostalgic, and deeply reflective track – a mellow tune from the nineties comes to mind – quickly transforms into a wholly original work that elegantly blends the delicacy of indie vocals with the raw energy of Indie / Alternative music.
ZPEXTRE’s unmistakable whispered vocal delicacies in “Electrify ” introduce somewhat fragmented lyrical ideas that seem to suit the soundscape’s cinematic, distant and colorful nature.
Its heavy influence on Alternative and Indie music, “Electrify,” transports the listener to a different dimension of sound and imagination. It’s a breath of fresh air that admits its sources of inspiration through powerful instrumental work and lyrics. The individual elements may sound familiar, but they create a current and inventive entity when everything is together.
This single, which is brilliant in that it does not strive too hard to be anything other than what it is, demonstrates an artist with a diverse range of influences and a natural and honest approach to creative expression.
Throughout the track, there is a dreamlike ambiance that beautifully compliments the thoughts presented in the song. I’m looking forward to hearing more from ZPEXTRE.
