Artist: Six Gallery Song: "Bermuda Triangles"

Shred-happy Columbus indie-rockers Six Gallery just signed to German record label Superball, best known for its association with ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. The deal gets them U.S. and European distribution through EMI for this year's self-released debut Breakthroughs in Modern Art. They've also inked a deal to have their album sold in Hollister stores nationwide - not the hippest retailer in the world, but quite the coup nonetheless.

In honor of the news, today we spotlight "Bermuda Triangles," Breakthroughs' blazing intro track. A lot of the band's songs delve into breathy interludes and breakdowns, but Six Gallery barely takes its collective foot off the accelerator here. Band MVP Will Vokac's chops are on display as usual, but the harmonized vocals do a lot to aid his cause, and those gang chants are quite the nice touch. It's a little math-y for my tastes, but the songwriting's there.

They'll play Columbus next on Saturday, Dec. 19 at Skully's. The full press release is after the jump...

Breaking News!

Six Gallery Announce Debut Album, "Breakthroughs In Modern Art," out March 23rd on Superball Music * New York Appearance December 12th at Spike Hill!

The musical machine gun of Will Vokac and Ben Schreiber's finger-tapped guitars is still there, but the addition of Daniel Francis' fervent vocals has pushed the group into uncharted territory. One could go on and on about the ways in which Francis bounces from expression to expression, often ripping into a soulful cry before sinking into a whisper (give the standout “Built to Last” a try). His rambling lyrics drop facts, allusions, secrets, and tall-tales with equal earnestness and we're not sure whether to believe all of it or none of it. The sheer excitement his stories offer sprints arm-in-arm with the sparkling guitars with an incredibly balanced, energetic effect. - Absolutepunk
