Hollywood-based musician and DJ St Brendan L.A. creates a sound that blends nostalgia and forward-thinking elements with his latest album, “Petal Called The City Smoke.”

With a musical vision that knows no bounds, St Brendan L.A. transports audiences into different realms with his cyberpunk-inspired and synthwave music. Harnessing the power of electronic music to transport listeners to otherworldly realms, he has created a treasure trove of tracks that are more experienced than merely heard. Each track he has produced has been a stepping stone in his growth; they are embodiments of his experiences, dreams, imaginations, and visions. If you enjoy something magical and mystical, prepare to revel in St Brendan’s innovativeness as he taps into uncharted worlds, taking you to places you’ve never been with dynamic beats created with meticulous attention to detail.

The album “Petal Called The City Smoke” is much more than a collection of tracks; it is a sonic odyssey that is transformative and cathartic, capturing the essence of nostalgia with its heavily synthesized sounds that take cues from ’80s and early ’90s club music, backed by anime inspiration.

As the album seamlessly transitions from one track to the next without losing its authentic touch, some of the tracks, like “No Name Plz,” are reminiscent of Vangelis’s Blade Runner soundtrack due to their iconic synth and ambient soundscapes. Both “Eris’ Dawn (Final Dawn)” and “Eris’ Dawn (Day Break)” are reminiscent of Yoko Kanno’s work on Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell for their genre-blending and cinematic qualities. Meanwhile, a track like “Casino Robber” captures the mind thanks to its highly experimental, improvisational sound and high energy.

“Casino Robber” is a high-energy track with rapid tempos and energetic beats that evoke the club scene of the late ’80s with the basslines and rhythms designed for the dancefloor. The track borrows influences from house, techno, and breakbeat, making it one of a kind.

Layers of ambient pads, analog synthesizers, and hauntingly beautiful effects make the jam “Eris’ Dawn (Day Break)” an irresistible tour de force with cinematic allure. There is something so irresistible about this tune, something indescribable that stays with you even after the song is over. It also has an undeniable orchestral feel that elevates its impact tenfold.

“Eris’ Dawn (Final Dawn)” is similar to ‘Day Break,’ except for its funky-like rhythm, syncopated beats, and unconventional time signature that mirror a somewhat chaotic and unpredictable nature. The glitch effects create a sense of digital decay and futuristic dissonance, contributing to the cyberpunk imagery.

“No Name Plz” embraces the storytelling style of noir, with dark, introspective soundscapes that are captivating. “MF Knights” features an ambient and adventurous beat with a consistent rhythm and melody, bound to stick in your mind after the final notes fade away.

In its entirety, “Petal Called The City Smoke” showcases excellent showmanship by St Brendan L.A. as he takes listeners on a sonic journey through a world shrouded in nostalgia and mystery. This album is a unique musical offering that defies conventional categorization as it contains no lyrics.

St Brendan L.A. lets the music speak for itself, showcasing his multifaceted talents in music production.

Stop whatever you are doing and delve right into this sonic tour de force. At the end of your listening experience, you will feel like you have traveled through time into the past, a feeling that words cannot describe!
