THE DISASSOCIATES - "30mg"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

A Sonic Prescription for the Soul

We're back again with THE DISASSOCIATES and their fresh-off-the-presses new single, "30mg" - a captivating anthem of introspection and raw emotion that speaks directly to the soul. This production isn't merely heard; it's deeply felt—a visceral pulse in the chest, a thunderous whisper in the conscience.


Jordan Sutton's acoustic guitar begins the journey with tender yet deliberate strums, creating an ambience that's both comforting and unsettling—a prelude to the soul-stirring odyssey that follows. As Brie Marie's voice enters the fray, it carries with it the weight and wisdom of lived experience. Her lyrics, like strokes of an impressionist's brush, paint the tumultuous inner landscape of someone wrestling with the specters of mental health: "High voltage brain waves at work, power clashing thought patterns." It's as if the song reaches into the heart of human fragility and lays it bare for all to see.


In a pre-chorus that rises like the dawn after a long night, we are escorted to the altar of modern medicine, where hope is dispensed in doses of thirty dollars a month. Brie Marie's voice, imbued with an ethereal potency, encapsulates the profound exchange of money for mental peace, a ritual that reverberates with the silent stories of many.


The chorus erupts into a cacophony of emotion, where Michael Bonanno’s thunderous drumming and Justin Pittman’s pulsating bass anchor us firmly to the present. Here, Brie Marie's voice ascends, an impassioned siren that resonates with a power that's as raw as it is refined, articulating a plea for understanding that's both haunting and beautiful.


Each verse, each chorus, each harmonic convergence is a brushstroke on the canvas of "30mg," culminating in a chorus that is an anthem of survival and resilience. It is a candid confession of dependence and a hymn of gratitude for the medication which acts as both shield and sword against the tumult within.

 

In a pre-chorus that rises like the dawn after a long night, we are escorted to the altar of modern medicine, where hope is dispensed in doses of thirty dollars a month. Brie Marie's voice, imbued with an ethereal potency, encapsulates the profound exchange of money for mental peace, a ritual that reverberates with the silent stories of many.
 

The song closes in a glowing symphony of vocal harmonies, a bittersweet farewell that leaves you yearning for more. The innovative pill bottle shaker serves as a brilliant metaphor—a rhythmic reminder of the song's core, the artistry interlaced with the authenticity of its message.


THE DISASSOCIATES have not just created music; they have offered a sanctuary—a place where the euphoria of sound meets the raw truth of existence. "30mg" is not just a song; it's a beacon for those navigating the stormy seas of mental health, and a beautifully haunting reminder that sometimes what saves us is also what defines us. THE DISASSOCIATES stand poised at the vanguard of alternative rock, not just as musicians, but as architects of empathy and agents of change.
