Spooky Mansion was formed under unconventional circumstances. The four-piece group originally got together for a one-off performance at Owen Wilson’s 45th birthday party, but something about the partnership stuck. Now, they’ve just released their sophomore record The Curse to a cult following of fans. Here at Lightning 100 we can’t stop listening to “The Fight” released by ONErpm.
The Los Angeles-based band makes self-proclaimed “surf soul rock n roll.” They’re known for their genre blending, and this innovation certainly comes through on the latest record. Nonetheless, The Curse ushers in a new era of musical maturity for them— one defined by the recognition that less can sometimes be more.
“The Fight” is lullaby-like. Despite its heavy subject matter, the song is deceptively groovy and twinkly. Frontman and primary songwriter Grayson Converse’s unique vocal style only adds to the dreaminess.
