Musicismost turn it up a notch with a raucous rehashing of their debut single with Pheromone Too (Hard Mix) — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Following up the successful release of the original version of Pheromone Too in December, the members of reclusive London-hailing powerhouse Musicismost crank it up a gear (or several) on this remix, delivering an even-more-potent dose of sleazy Sunset Strip-style tempestuous energy. Laced with distorted guitars weaving through serpentine progressions and breathy up-front vocals synonymous with ’80s hard rock, the track offers a modern anthemic take on the iconic sun-soaked sound.
“Pheromone Too sheds light on the effects of pheromones and how they can affect you and your emotions without realising it,” Musicismost say. And there’s more where that came from, they add. “We wrote a collection of songs, mostly from an observational point of view, to introduce the listener to new concepts.”
Their own concept is nothing new, however. Musicismost are a collective of lifelong friends who started jamming in the ’80s. Shortly before the lockdown hit in 2020, they banded together once more and hit the studio with their viscerally electric approach to hard rock.
Creating catchy, fresh and high-energy alt-rock became the objective, and that’s exactly what they deliver. Any and all comparisons to other artists are extremely fleeting — yet fans of Scorpions, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row or The Electric Boys will feel right at home in Musicismost’s world.
Pheromone Too was recorded at ICP Studios in Brussels (The Stranglers, Stereophonics & Suede). Mixed by Paul-Edouard Laurendeau (Pharrell Williams, Wolf Alice & Suede) and mastered by Grammy-winning producer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana’s Nevermind). It’s the first single released from their upcoming debut album, due for release in autumn.
