Sluka Releases New Album, ‘Colorful Radiation’

Earlier this month, San Diego artist Sluka released his latest album, Colorful Radiation. Stream the album on Bandcamp and click here for our full review.

The album begins with a bit of a fakeout. “Number One” starts off as a ukulele tune before taking a sharp left into a glittery Bowie-esque groove, full of verve and color. “Rise” is a jangling new wave cut accented by rhythmic breathing and a bright acoustic guitar. Much of the album is surprisingly reserved and gentle, with plenty of quirks and strange little flourishes weaved throughout. Textured synths float across the ballad “A Mode of Joy,” a mid-album standout led by a soft piano melody.
