Dog Drive Mantis – Volta (Review)

Experimental rockers Dog Drive Mantis return with a vibrant new string to their repertoire. Entitled β€œVolta”, the instrumental number showcases the Toronto based quartet simply in their natural habitat. Flowing freely with great ease, the track was inspired by the imagery of a lighthouse. Wacky and innovative, the tune features elements of jazz fusion mixed with an indie rock vibe. 

Delivering a full sound that takes every colour of it’s spectrum, the texture in Volta screams with glitter. Poetic and quite avant-garde, the progressive post-rock track takes us through many genres. With the elevating horn-driven sparkle, the instrumental gives the audience resources to make their own story up. Theatrical and a track you won’t get tired of hearing. If you’re into Snarky Puppy, Vulfpeck and Do Make Say Think, these guys are right up your street. 

Score: 4/5
