You may have missed it, but a little over a year ago mad chemists from another planet dropped four test subjects into Central Jersey. Their purpose? Bringing righteous rock to the masses, of course.
With their powers combined, Vocalist Matthew Makin (test subject No. 5), guitarist Kevin Nenichka (test subject. No. 7), bassist Johnny Zabe (test subject No. 9), and drummer Jack LaMonica (test subject No. 13) form Experiment 34. Since forming in NJ, the band has been steadily rising and cutting their teeth in the local live scene while working on their debut EP.
The initial three song sampler from Experiment 34, Charismanic, is almost upon us as the group will celebrate its release tomorrow with a show at The Court Tavern tonight. Speak Into My Good Eye is happy to host the exclusive premiere of single “Check Up” below.
On “Check Up,” Experiment 34 conjures a wild, fiery funk-rock storm evocative of the best garage days of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Each test subject turns in an individual performance that coheres beautifully and is worthy of repeat listens just to track everything that’s going.
“It started with a bass-line and ended with a party,” shares Makin. “Check it out as Experiment 34 reminds to you get a check up from the neck up.”
Stream Experiment 34’s “Check Up” below and be sure to head to the Court Tavern tonight for their EP release show where they’ll be joined by Gravity Well, Nameless Victims, Stereo Jo and Murdock & Leeroy Green. Charismanic is out March 18th via self-release.
