Warning: big thing. Schrodinger’s Santa Sierra EP will allow you to extend the summer that is already leaving us by a few months (bastard!). On the menu of this 6 tracker, a totally uninhibited fusion that scans almost the entire musical spectrum from djent to bossa nova. The exercise is dangerous, but the talent is here and success is total. Giving the feeling that all the guys in the band have been in a previous life mariachis and members of funk, black metal bands, or even hip-hop. Regardless of the style approached (because these gentlemen are constantly jumping from one style to the other), the mastery is absolute and amazing. Like the band 6:33, Schrodinger cannot deny its affiliation to Mr Bungle (the reference of the genre), but skillfully avoids the copy syndrome by developing atmospheres of its own (cf. thrash and US rap shots on “Slack”, or the sublime “Supaman”).
In twenty-five minutes, Santa Sierra gives us the feeling of four hours trip, the musical territories crossed are numerous and varied. Not to mention the fun dimension, which is the little candy on the bedside table. We hope that the combo transforms this essay and comes dragging its Bermuda shorts on stage, signs with a big label, becomes master of the world and that we never hear from the Red Hot Chili Peppers again. Fans of the work of Patton & Co., do not miss this group which seems to have been designed to make love to your eustachian tube. And this is not an advice, it is an order. https://schrodinger-band.com

“Perhaps your neurons have already been stuck on the Schrödinger’s Cat experiment – kitty who has the particularity of being, at an instant T, both dead and alive? This first EP that has just been released brilliantly shows us that this kind of paradox, on which the mind stumbles, becomes surprisingly clear when administered through the ear. Both latino, modern prog with a djent tendency, extreme metal full of shrieks, sweet pop, coppery liveliness and island creaminess, but also simply rock, the band’s music shows an insolent hook, slamming assumptions with the confidence (and heritage) of Carnival in Coal, Twelve Foot Ninja and Dog Fashion Disco.
Because despite the predictions of cold fishes, nothing is more natural and more stimulating than the electro-loungy swaying rap of “Slack”, than the big blasts and the marimba of the title track, or than “Superman”s acoustic caresses. So let the quantum effect of this exceptional first release act on you, and let you both incredulous and conquered by so much ingenious daring.”
Cyril Glaume (New Noise Magazine)
“Speaking at the same time to our guts, our neurons and our cheekbones, the group fills us by successfully making out of these innovative mixtures real hits. So, like the cat of the other Schrödinger, I find myself torn to the limits of the paradox,
“The abundant creativity of the compositions seems to laugh at the labels and goes far beyond the limits. When you think it’s the first EP of a young band, you stop the comments, listen and humbly bow your head. Read full review here
SCHRODINGER is influenced by all types of music and this EP is a clever mix of metal, Latin music, 90s rock, progressive , experimental music and even hip-hop. Everything is incredibly daring, mastered and successful. Besides the musical part which I found excellent, I was particularly amazed by the vocal prowess of Adnane. You are going to blow your mind and I hope that the 6 titles of Santa Sierra will take you away as it did for me! Read full review here
This Ep is clearly a pleasant surprise, as much by the quality of the songs as by its madness and its multiple influences. Santa Sierra is undoubtedly a sweet explosion revealing a certain talent. Read full review here
Quality is not synonymous of quantity. Indeed, we can qualify this album as confusing and explosive (to be taken in both meanings: “to thunder” and “to surprise”). And that’s what we are witnessing with “Santa Sierra”. A mix of styles! Rather than being mixed up, they are juxtaposed one after the other and flow together into a surprising whole, but remarkably pleasant to listen to. Also very inspired by the complexity of the compositions, because there is an obvious artistic research in this improbable mix of music from multiple horizons. It would go almost unnoticed as the group plays the humor card with a very crazy side. No downtime! Everything is there: Latin melodies, rap, metal, frenzied riffs, tonic instrumental parts, a percussive rhythm, a profusion of sound effects and sound animations which punctuate the pieces and give it an offbeat coloring. The album is brimming with impetuosity and daring. It takes several listenings to appreciate all its creative richness. Read full review here
