Formulaic, cookie-cutter music is par for the course these days when it comes to mainstream music and there has been a void in truly original sonic delivery for a while now, but luckily there are some artists still willing to venture outside the box to deliver on the notion that good music still lives…


One simply must know where to look.




Ransom Scenery is just the group to take listeners on a wild ride of avant garde musicality that digs in, clutches at the roots, and never lets go. The Illinois duo are serving up a singular sonic flavor that will have the innocent bystanders attempting to label them and ultimately fail. Evocative and elegant in its approach, their experimental sound makes for a powerful, understated impact that keeps interest levels high track after track.




Electronica fans will immediately gravitate towards the first song on the CD, ‘Slowly Spinning’, which serves up an ethereal approach with a steady beat underneath that maintains the energy from beginning to end. ‘Driplove’ showcases the musicality of the band, delivering a song that can only be characterized as orchestrated chaos. And the proceeding tracks ramp up the darkness, giving fans the edge they’ve been expecting from this talented duo.



Ransom Scenery consists of vocalist Chaepter Negro playing several instruments (mandolin, cello, piano) and Drew Lowey on drums and percussion. Armed with a bevy of ideas, the two create a sonic landscape that is undeniably all their own. Newcomers that have yet to experience the duo of dark now have the perfect opportunity to catch the two in action. Ransom Scenery isn’t just emitting a new fresh sound that is weaves through the scenery, but are chewing it up by the sonic seams
