Revengineers - "Self-Titled"

Revengineers, a budding chip-rock group, has played with the likes of similar artists Anamanaguchi and Starscream, but their debut self-titled EP has a unique sound of its own. You don't always hear such thoughtful and talented instrumentation alongside the retro sounds of Nintendo's NES and GameBoy, but the Revengineers pull it off here quite well. Be sure to check out the upbeat and melodic "Laika", as well as the other four tracks of this noteworthy record.

  1. I just listened to this self-titled ep and immensely enjoyed it. The album has some of the best flow and transitions I’ve heard in a chiptune recording, with each track organically molding into the next. “Laika” is easily one of the album’s strongest tracks, with a mellow, ethereal opening filled with unintelligible utterings of a distorted voice recording. From there, however, things ramp up quickly, reaching catchy riffs and driving upbeats almost immediately.

    However, my favorite song off this album has to been the last one, “Failed Pedestrian Dreams.” It slowly eases you into the chiptune vibes, yet still manages to capture that spirit. This slow, yet deliberate use of the sound was one of my favorite parts of the Revengineers’ style.

    I definitely recommend people pick up this EP.
