BEDTIMEMAGIC - "The Slumber Party (Part I)"

BEDTIMEMAGIC are much heavier than a lot of the music we cover here at If It's Too Loud..., but sometimes there's just something about Boston hardcore and metal that just works for me. The band's latest single, "The Slumber Party (Part I)," is a two minute burst of just heavy rock with plenty of screaming vocals. But the duo are more than just your typical heavy band in 2024. The song is a little bit of a trainwreck and insanely discordant in a Lightning Bolt kind of way, but BEDTIMEMAGIC has this heavy groove throughout the song that just holds you in place and refuses to let go. Is "The Slumber Party (Part I)" metal, or is it noise rock? Yes to both?

Vocalist and lyricist Nicholas Pentabona says of his band's latest single:

“Musically, ‘The Slumber Party (Part I)’ is a return to form for us. We eschew the complex and cerebral for piss and vinegar. The track is viciously forward, unrepentantly alive, unapologetically guttural. Lyrically, the song follows a gentle rhyme scheme delving into an inescapable feeling of being stuck. A record skips on the turntable. A feeling of guilt shrouds the room. Leave me alone.”

You can watch the video for "The Slumber Party (Part I)" below. The song will be included on the NEF100: Burn After Hearing Compilation on Nefarious Industries, which is due out June 14 and is available for pre-order here.
