Dragonfly Lingo - Offscreen
Experimental, Industrial Rock This album is mostly instrumental spiced up with a lot of samples from movies and the odd original vocal snip here and there. You have drums, guitars and synths and you might call it experimental rock. The mood very airy, and it sounds like the kind of music you would find in a movie.

While I do enjoy the music, I think it would fit best in a movie, because the music itself doesn't draw too much attention leaving space for visuals. The song "All right" offers some of my favorite parts on this album with some epic melodies and harmonies put together in the middle of the song.

Somehow it has a very deranged and eerie sound to it which reminds me of Marilyn Manson's album 'Portrait of an American Family'. The likeness does not go too far, but it is definitely there.

If you're driving this album would treat you well, offering songs that just go on and take you a journey as you zone out. The songs also have that quality of carrying you off somewhere.

The way Dragonfly Lingo uses samples is very pleasing to the ear and they always add to the songs. I feel that with some more original vocals they could take it to the next level, unless they aim at making background and film music.
