Do you ever take the time to question everything that you believe and even the reasons why you believe it? If yes, then good for you. If no, Undesirable People wants to help you think about your life. The goal of their music is to stand on their own terms. Undesirable People want to be indie, they want to avoid the mainstream and they want to watch MTV crash and burn in front of them. With this goal set, the band is releasing their first full length album, Eternal Vision of a Blind Future. This 11 track anthem is five years in the making and fueled by everything that sets them apart.
Eternal Vision of a Blind Future is a heavy rock album that is built upon, well, questions. They have said f*ck off to the top 10 and gone down their Road Less Traveled By. Although they have taken some influences with them; Jimmy Eat World, Alkaline Trio and more, they are venturing out on their own. While they are trying to fight the mainstream, they have not made their music out of reach of most audiences. Driven by loud guitars and heavy amps, this rock band has created a great album that includes lyrics that reach a rare depth along with bluesy and metal riffs.
From the first song, when the guitar riffs come in slow and the vocals come together, I was intrigued. The longer the album went, even though it seems to take longer than 37 minutes, the more I liked it. It was loud, pushy and in your face, yet at the same time I felt connected. I felt invited to listen to it and never forced.
The thing that I love about good rock albums, the balance between music and noise is always difficult to find. But when you find an album that knows the balance, even if the vocals are not perfect, you cannot pull yourself away.
I found myself tapping my feet, bobbing my head and even drumming along with the songs. Here is the thing that makes Undesirable People’s album different than the other rock albums on the market today. These songs are crafted, while so many others are synthesized. While they use some editing and cleaning in post-production, these songs were created to challenge the listener.
At no point did I feel offended or ostracized, I felt like I was having a conversation (no I didn’t talk to the album). Undesirable People, in my opinion, don’t have an ill idea. They want to help anyone that picks up a copy of their album to be 100% sure of what they believe and why. I, for one, can appreciate that in this world of change and political agenda.
