TPR Featured Band: The Volta Sound

source.. TPR Featured Band: The Volta Sound.


Cleveland, Ohio’s The Volta Sound has a laid-back feel, reminiscent of happy, chill days and relaxed, good times. There’s a sunny-day, upbeat quality to the tunes, as if they were written when the sky was clear and blue and bright, and this morning’s mild hangover, shared amongst good friends, is a source of re-lived laughter and good cheer.

The Volta Sound embodies a combination of acoustic instrumentation in the style of  Beck and a motley of awesome synth sounds– spacey keyboards, synth percussion, and some sprinkling of psychedelic noise to complete their intelligently composed collage of sounds, which come across with strong, positive vibrations. There’s also a whimsical effect to both the tunes and the prescribed album art, as if The Volta Sound‘s work is, in part, crafted to give you the impression that life really isn’t all that serious, even when it is.
To-date, The Volta Sound has released three full-length records (Good Lookin’ Out Ya’llLike Entropy, and Aluminum Anemone) simultaneously, this past July via their local label, Totally Davenport. Despite the massive amount of material up-front, each record manages to stay fresh and entertaining– a noteworthy feat, as each separate work retains an overall related feel, both through the banana-peel-inspired images, as well as a distinct and familiar sound in the tunes, all the while maintaining a freshness and uniqueness.
