West Hartford act Hamm’s Odyssey is made up of Kevin Carr (guitar/vocals), Matthew Meigs (guitar/vocals), with newly enlisted collaborators Trevor Guglielmino (drums), and Lucas Vannie (Bass). Recently, the band has dropped their newest single “Monsters”. It is their first since 2018’s “Odyssea“.
“Monsters” is a promising piece of indie rock from the young Hartford band. Melancholic and multi-parted, what starts with simple acoustic strums and isolated vocal from Carr, shifts twice, first into formidable rainy day guitar pop, and then into its final instrumental, a hypnotic march of intertwining, understated psychedelia. Both a strong sense of melody and these shifts invigorate the relatively gloomy track with a live energy and increase its replayability.
