ERRA gets groovy with new single “Cure”
Cure - ERRA

Ahead of their new album, set to release on April 5th, ERRA has premiered their latest single Cure to the world. It’s been fun watching the band rise through the ranks of Progressive Metalcore kings and establish themselves as one of the top bands. Needless to say, I was excited to dive into this. 

As soon as the track starts, I get Muse and Northlane vibes. The intro opens with intricate riffs that sets the stage for a musical crusade. Jesse Cash’s vocals soar with a perfect balance of aggression and emotion. Add in the harsh vocals from JT Cavey, and you have a beautiful contrast that gives me goosebumps. Cure showcases more of Cashs range as a vocalist and that he has more to offer than just highs. 

The drums are absolutely devastating in this song. They provide a solid backbone and foundation for the rest of the song to exist. The shifts in time signatures caught me off guard and kept me engaged. 

Cash commented on the new experimentation: “Cure was one of the last songs we wrote for the record. I had this groove riff that I was just so obsessed with, to the point that I wanted to stay with it for the full duration of the song. So even though the song stays in 4/4 for the most part, we’re always staying locked into this dotted sequence on rhythm guitars and kick, making the rhythm feel complex yet easy to latch onto as a listener. In the final breakdown section, we stay with this dotted sequence, but switch the time signature to 6/8 for a few bars before reverting back to 4/4 to close out the song. These playful tinkerings with time signature serve as a suitable introduction to the approach we took with grooves throughout the whole record.”

Overall, the track is a masterpiece and has shown the growth of the band. It shows that they aren’t stuck inside a box and aren’t afraid to do something different. I’m loving the 90s grungy but yet djenty vibes of this song, and I cannot wait for the rest of this album to drop.
