Weekend’s Tunes Are…
“Stormy Weather” by RedrumSociety
American Indie Rock band RedrumSociety sets the music scene ablaze with their newest single “Stormy Weather”. The song is based on the verbally abusive relationship that bandleader Zach Cohen experienced. The band takes back that power with a catchy melody and an upbeat tempo intertwined with emotional lyrics that detail the struggles in a verbally abusive relationship mixed with death and addiction. My favorite part is the part before the chorus with the layered vocal textures, but also the big energy featured in the vocals. It is an upbeat and fun rock song with a serious message that cannot be forgotten!
“HIGH3R” by Trent-Jean
“It spawned as a love song 4 years ago, but during the production stage at the close of 2021 – my Dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. It (HIGH3R) then shifted gears in my motivation, that being to incite the energy of having to rise above challenges faced in this lifetime.”
Australian alternative rock artist Trent-Jean explodes onto his atomic pop-rock tune “HIGH3R”. The track is driven by the energies from love, desire, and rising above adversities in life to be the best in your life.

Trent-Jean’s diverse rock vocals are mixed with lush female vocals to create catchy melodies within the positive soundscape. “HIGH3R” is such an inspiration with not only its lyrical content but also the melodies and tempo.

The weekend needs another alternative rock song, this time with “It Follows the Rain” by Australian artist Psychedelic Revolution. This rock tune features a diverse range of instrumentation from the soulful organs, to the driving bassline, and then the cascading piano melodies. But, the driving point of this song is Psychedelic Revolution’s vocals as there is a certain element to them that makes the sound unique with their earthen, bass tones. They are very relaxing to listen to as they lead listeners down the song’s melody lines. It is a great listen for this weekend!

Swedish Indie Pop artist VOCAL LONER is back with her original track “1976”. The artist was heavily influenced by the 70s when writing this song. Listeners can hear these influences through the nonstaglic melodies and instrumentation. However, there is a very modern touch with “1976” with the vocals as they are light and melodic, a perfect contrast against jarring guitar riffs.
