“CALEB CHRONIC” has captured something stylish and mighty with his latest single. “SLUMBER PARTY” is a song that draws you in step by step, with an immense use of contrast as the delicate verses evolve into the hard-hitting, heavy hook section. It’s a sound that’s all his own right now. “Music that demands to be listened to.” That’s the mantra of CALEB CHRONIC’s discography, and his latest single SLUMBER PARTY is just that; gut-punching guitar riffs, incendiary breakdowns, and a groove that could sway Olympus Mons. CHRONIC music is largely based in heavy metal but is not afraid to dip into electronic, rap, and even dubstep. This creates a dynamic feeling throughout each verse and each chorus that can only be described as a journey.
While you’re likely to find yourself impressed by the vocal delivery on this track, the song itself is one that inescapably weaves its way into your consciousness in a pretty unforgettable manner. It’s not easy to do that these days when so much new metal hits the airwaves every hour, but “CALEB CHRONIC” has found a way – and this is done without excessive levels of volume or unnecessary drops.
The track is minimalist for the most part, standing tall on the strength of its own unique concept and confidence. That second verse is something that drives the energy of this whole project – the further you get into the song, the faster and more intensely these lyrics pour through. So much so that a single listen or even two is far from enough to catch every idea. “SLUMBER PARTY” is a mighty example of this, a track that blows you away with it is an awesome rock delivery and the sheer volume of words among such a strong, spacious backdrop.
There’s undoubtedly something musically characterful about this track, it feels in some respects like a classic, alternative metal piece, but the quality of the sound and the instrumental and sample choices – even the placement of the leading voice within the mix – all point in a slightly left-of-center direction. As you listen to more of CALEB CHRONIC’s music, this quickly becomes a lasting trait of his sound and his approach to expression.
“SLUMBER PARTY” from the same recent collection sees a creative and simplistic yet interestingly detailed soundscape pour through alongside yet another strong and awesome leading vocal delivery. There’s color to this one, a certain fusion of genres and influences, a sense of possibility. It fits well among his discography, as suggested, it helps finalize the listener’s understanding of CALEB CHRONIC as an artist.
