Three Songs To The Head vol. 46
Hello and welcome back to Three Songs to the Head where we share three songs that moved us, three songs we love, three songs we can’t get out of our heads! Today, we’re featuring Omar Tellez, Razor Clam and Killer Workout. Enjoy!
You know those shots in movies where a person comes out of the shadows of an alleyway or something, hood on, you just see his mouth and the shadow of the world splashed over his face? That’s how Omar Tellez rhymes. Dude handles himself casual, almost unseen, and then he starts spitting and you see the truths like graffiti writing splayed over the brick walls. Check out his song “Elite” to know what the heck I mean.
What do you get when you combine Cindy Lauper vocals, anal sex and bouncy synths? Razor Clam, that’s what! Their track “ITB,” which at this stage is just a live demo but I wanted to write about it because they have a show at the Substation Saturday (March 25), is all about the dangers of unwanted butt sex. I’ll leave you to listening and forming your own smirky opinion.
Killer Workout (formerly The West) press a lot of energy into their work, which twists and contorts within their voices, instruments and dancing and out comes generous tunes like “Into the Night,” which sounds like a little Smashing Pumpkins mixed with a little sweat-filled, drug-addled 3am party.
The answer isn't poetry, but rather language
