Singer/Songwriter Sluka Will Release Visual Album (3D/4K/BluRay), Colorful Radiation, On November 3


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Multi-faceted performer, songwriter and aesthetic visionary SLUKA is set to release a ten-song visual album, Colorful Radiation, on November 3. It will be available on Amazon in a combination of 3D, 4K and Bluray. Its first single/video release will be "Rise," due out on September 29.
Colorful Radiation is SLUKA's 11th studio album to date, and he has a fan base that spans across continents.

To categorize SLUKA's music as "rock" is an oversimplification. Its often lush, ethereal sounds are a juxtaposition of elements found in classic, pop, gothic, progressive and alternative rock, which has resulted in a very difficult-to-define genre all its own. "Enigmatic rock," perhaps…?

Multi-talented Christopher Sluka is the embodiment of the term "Renaissance Man," and is as genre-defying as his music. He's a songwriter, producer, performer, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, drums, bass, violin, trumpet, trombone, french horn, ukelele, and synthesizer). He is also a world-renowned visual artist, whose surreal oil paintings have been displayed in galleries all over the US, Europe and Asia. All art aside, Chris also happens to be an aircraft pilot, who owns and operates a flight school in San Diego, CA, and is chief flight instructor. And he's as a long-distance runner as well.

Knowing all of that about Sluka, it makes perfect sense that he would create a visual album on three formats. "I appreciate when artists really immerse themselves in creating the best work they can," he explains. "From the initial inspiration, the performance, and the quality of recording. The same holds true for the visuals. 4K, 3D, and Bluray are the best quality for home viewing/listening, and I really wanted to push the envelope. It all just appeared in my head... the songs, the arrangements of instruments, and the visual ideas as well, all at the same time."

The audio-only version of Colorful Radiation (which is SLUKA's 11th studio album) was released early this summer and garnered rave reviews:

"Bucking on the zaniness of Stardust-era Bowie mixed with psych folk influence, the accompanying music video for 'Number One' is full of erratic, declarative visual stylings that do well paired with the spacey, synth-laden rock-and-roll of the San Diego performer." For Folk's Sake (http://www.forfolkssake.com/reviews/35902/video-sluka-number-one)

"if you're into Bowie, Lennon, and the Talking Heads this will be right up your alley." - Johnny Taylor, the Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/59415538e4b04c03fa26173e)

"Throughout the latest release from San Diego Rocker, Sluka, you can vividly hear a mixture of sounds and vocal stirrings akin to a combination of Kings of Leons, Arctic Monkeys and Freddie Mercury over a musical dose of the sun's rays that will stamp its mark on your head and heart for days." - Jessica Golich, Tattoo.com (http://www.tattoo.com/blog/san-diego-rocker-sluka-releases-colorful-radiation)

"Stylistically, Sluka should be tagged as rock, or as rock and pop, since there are pop elements in his music. Sluka is really hard to brand simply because he doesn't fit conveniently or satisfactorily into any of the pigeonholes that reviewers like to utilize. He's been likened to Radiohead, David Bowie, Cold Play and Imagine Dragons. To me, those are all legitimate comparisons; however, the one I prefer is The Kinks, with Bowie as front man." - Randy Radic, Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/album-review-colorful-radiation-sluka_us_594179cce4b04c03fa261781)

Sluka's multi-genre musicality and visionary style is poised to appeal to a wide and varied audience. "It's my hope that this visual release will resonate with people and draw them in; that it may challenge their thinking, and that they can turn to it for sustenance. I also hope they will relate it to their own life experiences when listening, as well as to what they see in the visuals. And I hope it can help them find beauty within the horrors of their own wonderful lives."
