Formerly Brannon, rock duo Jonathon Brannon and David Cagle reinvent their sound with the stylishly crisp new rock project that is Random Parts.
Their debut single hits the scene this month, pouring through with a gritty and heavy set-up that immediately meets the scene-setting weight of its artwork. So Long is a classic rock single with mighty vocals and a story-line that captivates thanks to short lines and a quickly engaging melody.
Working its way towards the explosive resolve that is the hook, So Long draws comparisons with the dawn of stage rock and roll, yet keeps things poetic and emotive at the same time – and injects a welcomed hit of fast-fingers and distortion for that natural rock intensity.
Weave in some chaotically beautiful solos during the latter half, and a quiet fall-away for the ultimate drop back into full-throttle rock, and So Long makes itself known as a classic rock track that begs for you to witness it in a live setting. Here’s hoping Random Parts embrace the live scenes as and when those return.
Superb vocals guide us through the twists and turns of this emotional and musically immersive rock journey. Listen loud.
