If you didn’t catch our interview with them back in January, Via Coma have released their debut full-length album Figures. The California trio has knack for creating a deeper emotional vision in each of their songs. With a refreshingly unique sound that blends piano with unpredictable guitar parts and the soft crooning of 3 part harmonies.

Comparisons are difficult, but may include parts of Matchbook Romance, Mars Volta and Muse.

 

Figures resembles a ‘haunted candyland’ of sorts. The melodies are rich and sweet  while the the piano/guitar dynamics can create a curious darkness that’s irresistible. Via Coma pulls it off flawlessly. Iron Horse is a great example of such a song. The band explores new territories of sound with the beeping guitar and the stomping beat that is truly unique and resembles the amazing creativity of these guys.

But that’s not all!

 

The opening track Aquanota highlights the vocal highlights of the groups and the dynamic that introduces you into the realm that band operates in. It does down smooth as long as you “Take one a day/Demons away”. Which leads you right into Blame with a falsetto ridden chorus and alternating time signatures. Their single Stitches was released as a single before the album came out and has seen many incarnations as remixes were done by HAS! and Spacebrother (Jared Piccone of Innerpartysystem). The album exits on the 5 minute track All’s Well That Ends that asks “Are we stars?”.

 

There’s not enough good things to say about the originality of Via Coma. It’s a shining beacon of sound that stretches musical boundaries and expands the imagination.
