Crowquill Records is happy to announce the release of Codas‘ début EP Currents, which is set to be released on June 2 2015 as a digital-only release. The solo project of Sleep Lady guitarist Mario Quintero, Codas is a stunning tour-de-force with elements of post-metal, progressive and even industrial music.
Codas began in January of 2015 as an experimental outlet for Mario Quintero, know for his involvement in bands such as Sleep Lady and Spotlights. After Sleep Lady went on hiatus, Mario and his wife Sarah Quintero (bassist in Sleep Lady) relocated to Brooklyn, NY and began Spotlights, a 3 piece post-rock project. Codas stemmed from ideas that just weren’t fitting the mold of either band and took on a life of their own. They became his debut EP Currents, a 4-song, 30-minute record that makes you wonder how it all fits together while keeping your attention through heavy, math-charged guitar riffs and dirty electronics. The album is meant to be played as a whole as it takes you on a ride, beginning with the droning ‘The Sun Martyr’, through the jagged sounds of ‘Follow the Blind’ and ‘White Black’, and then ending off in the ambience and heaviness of the title track.
Label CEO BJ Dierkes had the following to say about Codas:
“Codas is one of those projects that comes along out of nowhere and just kicks you right in the gut. Their debut EP “Currents” hits a sweet spot across an entire spectrum of influences and genres that have been masterfully melded together. This stuff is on a whole other level, and we’re stoked to be working with them.”
