The group Blaqrock are a KILLER band out of Chicago that incorporate political angst, hard rock, stunning instrumentals, and fierce vocals. They also use hip hop into their tracks, especially in their first official release Southside. The song touches on violence in the inner city from city crime to police brutality with gravely vocals that match their inner anger of the current state of Chicago.
Second cut About The Music (Interlude) is a complete jam session with amazing guitar work. The intro statement “it used to be about the music” sets the tone for the group’s upcoming work that is sure to make even more waves throughout the Chicago scene.
