Review Summary: Mystery Skulls will ruin your life

You hear that" That’s the sound of your life being ruined. After you listen to Mystery Skulls debut EP you’ll be humming it’s tracks non stop for years on end. Luis Dubuc possesses an insane talent that not many artists in and out of Mystery Skulls' respective genre or style have. Or at least not to the same magnitude that Mystery Skulls has. Luis Dubuc has completely mastered the elements of a perfect pop song. Carefully crafting the fragile elements and cementing them in an irresistible 80’s vibe of electro pop bliss. Each of the tracks on this EP are stuffed full of pure unstoppable energy. Energetic melodies, catchy hooks, snappy beats, and irresistible on mark falsetto vocals. On this EP are five outstanding tracks stuffed full of enticing and irresistible energy that anyone can give a spin and walk away happy. Even if that means you’re walking away with every single last second of sound stuck on repeat in your head for three years.

The production on Mystery Skulls is satisfying to hear. It seems like every single element is given utmost attention and care because of how simply complete each track sounds. There’s a lot to digest in each track one way or another considering how much is stuffed in there. Meshes and blends of guitar riffs and erratic piano instrumentation on gritty electro synth leads complement the insanely crisp drum beats in every track. Which all in turn play off Luis’ vocals brilliantly. Luis Dubuc also knows how to write some damn good lines. Not too out there but just in the right spot to catch on with the listener to drive them to sing along with each passing lyric. Every track on this EP is brilliant in it’s own way and the lasting appeal on each track stretches to no ends. Luis Dubuc has brilliantly implemented a wide spectrum of electronic blends in brilliant craft to ensure that his tunes cement themselves into your conscious for what could very well be forever. But with how composed they are and how contiguously catchy they are you won’t be minding it anyways.

Luis just announced an album slated for this fall, cannot wait! Also this is another short review, but my next one is gonna be hella long while I take a stab at Approaching Nirvana and then release the second review in my Deep Elm Records series.

All criticisms and feedback appreciated

Haven't heard this yet, can't wait. The song "Ghost" that they released as a single a little while back was phenomenal.

Yeah, when I bought Ghost i had it on replay for a few weeks. He just released another remaster of one of his 2011 tracks "Paralyzed" which was released alongside his announcement of a fall album. Though he hasn't provided any details out of that.

amazing EP! I'm not liking the newer tracks I'm hearing, but I think they'll eventually grow on me.

I agree that Ghost was a solid track, but I was incredibly underwhelmed by their main release. Good review though, pos'd
