Release Sophomore Album
RXN_002, Available Now
Atlanta nerve pop quartet Small Reactions are back with RXN_002, their long-awaited sophomore album. Stream it today on Bandcamp, iTunes, Soundcloud, or Spotify — and be sure to grab a copy on vinyl, CD, or digital formats here.
Noise and melody, volatility and composure, pop music and anything but. Following their debut, Similar Phantoms, and a collection of 7”s, EPs, and mixtapes, the album is their most successful, realized version of “nerve pop” to date.
Small Reactions spent the last several years paring down their music to the most essential elements. By focusing on basic instrumentation, simple structures, and few musical cues besides “loud” and “fast,” songs were easily driven to the tipping point, off the tracks and towards destruction. RXN_002 assesses the wreckage, puts the pieces back together, and starts the journey anew where the band left off, to the darker recesses of human experience. Noisy guitars, relentless drums, and hypnotic, melodic bass are all intact, but the tools for exploration have expanded. The sound is something less monolithic, but more nuanced and complex.
