I Have Four Names is an independent one-man band from Sydney, dedicated to making maximalist songs that pack a full and fun impact, but – as he says – never overstay their welcome.
As the culmination of the last 8 years of recording, ‘IH4N (DX)’ is an infectious album full of feverish and effervescent tunes: a collection of 20 songs, all remastered at Studios 301 in Sydney.
Among these, in addition to the lead track ‘Other Hand is Always Greener’, the 1:48 one-shot ‘The Solomon Method’ undoubtedly stands out. Biting, irreverent, moved by a compelling rhythm and an abrasive groove, ‘The Solomon Method’ is a formidable example of the brilliant musical vibrancy that IH4N is capable of creating from an arrangement and a mix and mastering of brilliant quality.
Recounting the animosity between two competitive eating greats, Takeru Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut, although it is a short song, the track is a formidable construction full of catchy calls, both in the melody and in the guitar riffs, with a fire drums that carries the piece forward, while the lyrics of IH4N jump and circulate in exciting phrasing between spoken words and rapping.
Unmissable entry points into the world of I Have Four Names, ‘The Solomon Method’ and ‘IH4N (DX)’ are available for streaming and download. The album is available also on MiniDisc, vinyl, and cassette via Bandcamp at IH4N.com.
