Music industry vets and multi-instrumentalists Alexx Calise and Dennis Morehouse bring together their love for rock, blues, funk, and psychedelic sounds. The result is six tracks that will stick with you long after the album ends.

For instance, the final track “Sorry, Not Sorry” is undeniably catchy and it’s hard not to keep humming the melody long after the song has ended. Then there’s “Get Out” with its amped up vibe and a chorus that’s just begging to be sung along to.

But it’s “Now That You’re Gone” that will really tug at the heart. There is a distinct R&B feel to the track, but Calise and Morehouse really bring their own thing to a familiar sound.

Really, that’s the hallmark of Batfarm’s EP; it’s full of an unfamiliar familiarity. True, In The Belfry contains all of the best elements of music, everything from swooning piano accompaniments to powerfully punchy vocals, but there is almost a lament to the rock music of the ‘90s with an embracing of the latest production techniques. Perhaps that’s why it brings to mind bands like Roxette and Greta Van Fleet.

Still, Batfarm really has their own thing going on. Their music is dark, strong, and enticing, and it is definitely not to be missed

Batfarm’s In The Belfry is now available on their website, and through iTunes and Amazon. And don’t forget to check them out on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Samantha Stevens has been singing along with the radio for as long as she can remember. Guided by a love for music, she spent the better part of her childhood performing in classical and contemporary choirs. But straight out of high school, she decided that she wanted to see the world, and so she did what any young adventurer would do…she joined the navy. An entire world of sounds, music, and stories opened up to her, and she found herself inspired by it all. In 2015, she retired from the Royal Canadian Navy after over a decade of service. Since then she has achieved a BA in literature, will soon have an MA in journalism, and is even a trained journalist and reporter. Currently living near Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Samantha has written for a wide variety of publications including Spill Magazine, Stereo Embers Magazine, and the North Bay Nugget. She still sings for the sheer joy of it.

  1. Yes. To all of this. Batfarm”s new EP is a tight modern rock trip, beautifully written, produced, and executed. Strong melodic hooks, passionate performances, and carchy lyrics that belie the poetry of the deep issues being explored. Stays with you, choruses stuck in your head and emotions that linger long after the music stops. Check it out!
