Rhett Repko immerses himself in the raw energy of rock and roll for this latest release, particularly the live version that you can check out below. The artist and his band have a tight connection, the music flows brilliantly, the rhythm is consistent and snappy and when it falls away everything smashes back into life in absolute, satisfying unison. It’s a great performance. The song itself has a few specific riffs and moments that really stay with you after listening, and although it does feel like a Rhett Repko track, it simultaneously feels like a step in a slightly more polished and energizing direction. It’s definitely his strongest release yet, and I was a fan regardless.
The riffs on this track are actually fantastic, and the rhythm of the music is not the only driving force behind the energy – the delivery of the melody has a certain pattern to it that offers a similarly addictive and uplifting quality. On top of all of this, you get a real showman presenting the music to you. Anything sounds better when the artist showcasing it is already, clearly in love with the process – it’s a great thing to experience.
Live show aside for a moment though, the song itself has been recorded incredibly well for your listening pleasure. The indie-rock vibe is alive and kicking, yet Rhett’s leading vocal rides alongside of it all in a pop-meets-funk kind of way, and this really brings together a few different musical angles – resulting in something that is unquestionably true to this artist’s sound alone. The more you listen to his music, the more familiar and characterful his voice really shows itself to be. As stated, this latest release is huge, a stand out moment – brilliantly captured and really well produced to give you full, authentic effect of live music.
