The US art-rock quintet The Bowling Alley Sound released the single The Highway State on the 15th.
In similar vein to their previous single Alabama Dissonance, which featured last year, The Highway State is inspired from being on the road, albeit on this occasion the music has a more disturbed underpinning which ebbs and flows akin to traffic moving and stopping in a traffic queue.
During its nine and almost two thirds of a minutes The Highway State (available on bandcamp) is led by a variety of spotlight instruments, including blown, strummed, bowed and keyed which further adds to the choppy motion of the journey.
It will be interesting to discover how many miles in to the inspiration of the tarmacadam of road trips The Bowling Alley Sound will further travel, in what is proving to be a rich seam of creativity, in its allegories of human interrelationships.
