Audio file

Paintscraper is a song performed by C-Side.


Paintscraper is a electronic hard rock song. It starts out with electric bass melodies, then vocals are added. After that, electric guitar melodies are heard, followed by the intro melody with synth added in. Then, the vocal-heavy chorus is heard.


SRL Musicology Dept. back with a huge scoop! You're listening to "Paintscraper," the latest offering from C-Side. Musically, they've welded a shiny rainbow melody to a thrash-metal skeleton and added all kinds of chrome spikes. Turn up the volume and shake the whole house!
