Phases by Dried Cassava | Music Review & Song Recommendation by Indie Accent by Indie Accent

PHASES
by DRIED CASSAVA


"It's got groove, it's got grip, it's got fresh ideas"


PART OF CEASE, SEE, SEIZE ALBUM
RELEASED ON 2023

The production on this latest album of Jakarta based group, Dried Cassava, as a whole is very cohesive, and the instrumentation for “Phases” is surely a standout. It's got groove, it's got grip, it's got fresh ideas.

Their development and matureness on music are very visible in this album, it showcases their signature alternative-rock which a bit more polished than their past releases. “Phases” is a euphoric and calm dance-y track that you will be listening to over and over because it's a goodie.

The coming-of-age lyrics such as “It’s ok to be not ok”, meshed with edgy guitar riffs subtly gives the song a calming vibe. Vocals that perfectly fit into the modern-day rock sound make the track relevant and exciting. The “guitar solo” part is the absolute highlight of the track and I could listen to it over and over again, just to hear that section. It doesn't hurt that the rest of the song is also great, and I hope you enjoy it too.
