Sound of Seventy Three:
Expansive guitar-driven post-rock with trip-hop tinged remixes.
Sound of Seventy Three is the bedroom recording project of New York born
multi-instrumentalist and producer Douglas Johnson.
euphoric noise of shoegaze, with the gritty-moody atmosphere of
trip-hop, and the expansive experimentalism of post-rock, Sound of
Seventy Three crafts unique modern instrumental music. Drawing
inspiration from sources as varied as 60's soundtracks, 70s kraut-rock,
80s post-punk, and 90's electronica, Sound of Seventy Three brings all
this together with a pop-like sense of melody and a lush, almost
classical, sense of orchestration.
Starting out in Doug's bedroom in 2005, Sound of Seventy Three became a
live band for several years playing loud instrumental guitar-based
post-rock in Atlanta area before eventually returning to the bedrooom
in 2010 to focus on writing and recording. While playing live Doug
perfected writing for his rock ensemble of two guitars, bass and drums
and this is still the starting point for much of Sound of Seventy
Three's music and arrangements. However, after returning to the
bedroom Doug decided to explore other sounds and textures that inspired
him primarily by remixing his own compositions.
