Blake Rhoades is a progressive music artist with a passion for experimentation. As a strong believer of momentous evolutions, his work is for the most part intuitive, as he looks for the next note, beat, and rhythm. Based in Pacifica, California, Blake’s music thrives at the thin space where the familiar structures of genre meet the unfamiliar. In his latest single, When Open, Blake Rhoades collaborated with underground music collective, Nocturnal Conversions and artist, Chris Speakes. 

The track is a reverberating fabric of melody and dissonance. It is led primarily by an electric guitar, the screened chords skate through the heavy bass atmosphere and mercurial beat structure. Mighty frames of shoegaze are sliced with grunge and hard rock riffs, and energized by post-punk beats. All these shifting parts piece together a flooding portrait of sonic that slowly takes shape in the form of abstract patterns. The listener can sense the buzzing luminosity and heated rods that run underneath the canvas. And after a tumultuous journey of rising and falling, the track settles into its original trajectory before coming to an end. 

The track is available for streaming on popular websites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
