“The main thing we hope that people take away from Famous is just to be yourself and not get caught up in compromising who you are as an individual to keep up with the trends. That’s why it’s Punk rock.”
Multi-instrumentalist and apparent game-show fanatic Cedric Rokkgod celebrates all things Alex Trebek and punk-rock combined on this latest single.
“As much as change is necessary, this song is about trying to hold onto a time in your life that you’ll never get back.”
The upbeat and optimistic Ode To Joy vibe contrasts well with the language and the angst of the lyrics, resulting in something that – for half of its listeners at least – will light up the room; bringing a glimmer of essential joy in an otherwise turbulent time.
Fusing the better parts of their punk-pop approach with infectious melodies, stunning musicality, an EDM-like level of energy and a superbly detailed soundscape, the song rightfully showcases Reality Suite as the unstoppable force that they are.
Things get incredibly dark, really reinforcing the essence of the song far more than staying focused on the comedy aspect – there’s a reason the band have made this, there are genuine concerns and issues at its core.
The roar of heavy rock meets with the descending and somewhat manic progression of power-chords you might more commonly find in punk rock, and in among this you also get a really effective melody, and a series of riffs that meet the high energy and embrace of the drums beautifully.
Festival stages across the globe call out for an act like this. Absolutely worth appreciating as summer 2019 swings into gear. Listen loud.
Trey Wonder’s latest single is an indie-rock smash that brings together the raw energy of the genre and the classic riffs and pace of a simpler time.
“All the Woodstocks – The time before the internet. It was a clusterfuck logistically, yet memorable on so many levels with soooo many legendary artists. Music is a positive force and energy – a therapy that satisfies the soul.”
There’s depth & intention to the song – as was the way with punk-rock back during the dawn of the genre; the songs were there to rebel against societal ‘normality’. Conscious lyrics were reinforced by emotional & striking performances that were clearly connected to the words at hand. That’s precisely what you get here. FUCK THIS NOISE is an absolute anthem.
Killing Pickle is a great track, one with an immersive sense of rising passion and energy, and the sort that offers up an immediately familiar intro once you’ve heard it even a single time. An indie dance-floor smash but also something to provoke a slightly deeper level of thought at the same time. Well worth a spin.
