Cole Collins – “Call Me Alien”

Songwriter and musician Cole Collins dropped a new single, “Call Me Alien,” on Friday. The artist celebrated the release with a show at Lofi Brewing with Columbia-based band Rex Darling.

“Call Me Alien” is bold, with electronic touches that glitter with metallic intensity as Collins’ vocals echo and reverberate.

“There’s nothing I can hide / I’m functioning with five /  A new conception of my own kind / In a superior mind,” he sings. There’s a big build up of guitar and synths, and the drums burst and bang with urgency.

Collins takes his vocals to a near-shout, then brings them back down, the soundscape expanding and contracting in a kind of intergalactical spectacle.

The close of the track ushers in a jam of sorts, with synth and guitar zooming against one another amidst ominous repeated lines from Collins.

“Call Me Alien” is an entertaining jaunt through sci-fi-influenced electro pop rock that brings to mind matters of technology, AI, and questions of the universe that seem to grow more and more present in our consciousness.
