It Can’t Be Undone —The Final Sound
This new musical project showcases the collaborative songwriting abilities of three scene veterans to produce an ultimately listenable,11-track album that spans the best-liked genres from rock to shoe gaze to Goth. Pablo and Gonzo, formerly of the band Fragile, have recruited tech wizard and bass player George Grant to provide stylish vocals that capture the disconsolate, plaintive feel associated with The Cure and other 80's icons.
Lyrics and melody prevail over rhythm in dreamy hymns. The stress is on grief-stricken feelings masterfully vocalized by George Grant and skillfully supported by guitar accompaniment and decidedly purposeful percussion. Some tracks are somber and carefully slow-paced, whereas there are also sufficient examples that rock the house with rousing anthems.
This album packs an emotional reward to lovers of melancholy music aimed at protesting life’s predicaments. It captures that theme with skilled composition, instrumentation and vocalization making it a pleasure to listen to. The fourth track, “Rainmaker” and the penultimate, tenth track, “The River” have been released and are already available as videos on Youtube. The whole album will be available on all major streaming platforms and distributed by CD Baby.

Listen to The Final Sound .. rock n roll til you die.
From their bio…Argentinian born brothers Gonzalo and Pablo Zauzich (guitars and drums respectively) came to the US in the early 2000s to further pursue their dream of writing music professionally and ultimately creating a band. While experimenting with various projects and styles throughout the following years, in 2016 they envisioned what The Final Sound would embody musically.
A chance meeting with George Grant (bass and vocals) (with whom they knew from a previous recording session years earlier) led to them exposing to him some of the songs they had recently begun creating. He decided to join on the spot. This turn of events converged into the driving force and musical chemistry behind “It Can’t Be Undone”, the debut album by The Final Sound.
If you’re always looking for the latest evolutions in Alt Rock, that’s exactly what you’ll find in the latest genre-mashing single “Crimson Skies” from the NYC-based trio The Final Sound.
While you’ll find plenty of elements which will drive you right back to the golden era of Shoegaze and Post Punk, you’ll also appreciate the contemporary Alt Rock drive and ingenuity which has been put behind the single.
Fans of Joy Division, the Cure, and Depeche Mode definitely shouldn’t hang around in placing the Final Sound on their radar. Their ability to capture the atmospherics of Post Punk and infuse it into a contemporary veracious single set the Final Sound apart with perceptible distinction. Needless to say, it’s accessible from the first hit, which may have a lot to do with how much synergy is found in the seamlessly tight instrumental arrangement.
