Album Review: “Coping Strategies” by CARES
The music created by the Toronto experimental artist CARES is best described as jarring. From the very onset of Coping Strategies you are presented with a blast of distortion and dissonance. From that point you are brought to a beautiful ambient track that is distinctively opposite to the rage-fueled dream of the opening track. This theme continues through the EP.
It is these sharp contrasts that makes CARES’ upcoming release so brilliant. It is not for the faint of heart, but if you allow the music to challenge your senses, you are left with an incredibly unique experience. I highly recommend you step into the world of Coping Strategies for yourself.
