THE SUTTON STREET MASSACRE

“EAGLE ON THE ARK”
Carlos Duhaime, Ian Foster, Kevin Bookhamer
January 31, 2012
From rock ballads to harmonious acoustic songs, indie music encounters it all! Here at HIP Video Promo, Andy Gesner and the entire staff live to experience all sides of today’s music scene, and once again we are pleased to introduce yet another group of talented musicians that are wooing the streets of Brooklyn and exciting the skinny jeans right off of every fan of indie-music to date.
The Sutton Street Massacre will leave you breathless and a bit alarmed; yet overall you will be entirely sedated by their eclectic and youthful style. Cheap sunglasses, manly beards, skateboards, and bullets may make up the exterior of these musicians, but there is a certain familiarity and grace to their music. A strong brotherhood exists between these musicians, which hints at a feel for the likes of The Black Keys. But don’t be persuaded into categorizing, there is no simple way to describe their creative ways—what makes them different is their twisted sense of humor and their subtle play on words.
In their video for their new song, “Eagle on the Ark,” you will find yourself utterly captivated by this indie track reminiscent of an 80’s love ballad. Their musical influences can be understood and determined through the sound of the song, but it takes on an entire new meaning and gives off a stylistic vibe that makes it different than anything you’ve ever heard before. The song is sung with ease from rooftops throughout Brooklyn, New York, where love blooms and well… every thing else happens. It is easy to tell the difference between the two vocalists, and each have a different approach to the seemingly love-lorn lyrics that they confess. Although there is a darkness that exists within the interests of the members of The Sutton Street Massacre, there is a complete side of playfulness that goes hand in hand with their personalities. As a listener, it is simply easy to relate to the lyrics and the eccentric styles of these musicians.
“Eagle on the Ark” has many rock and pop elements that you will not find throughout most indie-rock music of today, and to hear a song like it is a complete sign of relief for music fans. It won’t be easy to miss The Sutton Street Massacre; with musicians as creative as they are, music comes naturally. However, it is through their own sense of instinctive collaboration that they can make music that will have a sound that can be liked by any music lover.
