Gentlemen and Scholars are another bright star, shining the sky of rock and roll genre of music. After the enormous success of ” The Record, The Keepsake, And The Thief”, ”The Fault”, ”Bad Apples”, in 2017, they have launched another rich music album, ”Revelry”. ”Revelry” starts out with the electrifying Blues riff, but one single soundtrack, titled ”Cruisin”, has caught the attention of the audience the most, among the other songs of the band’s latest offering. Amidst the presence of the authentic rock and roll in ”Revelry”, it is ‘‘Cruisin’’ that is coming again in the minds of the audience. Everything from musical presentation to the matchless performance, ”Cruisin” evokes some kind of nostalgic sentiment and emotion of raw energy, illuminating the flames of passion.
”Cruisin” plays out in the middle of ”Revelry”, and it would not be right if the audience judges the song as a pure rock and roll content. For, it sounds like a mixture of indie rock, Blues-rock, indie, and the classic rock and roll. The sound of the song may take the audience a few decades back, but it seems very refreshing and innovative. The track contains the Gentlemen and Scholars signature melody and comes out in the most obvious entertaining way. Gentlemen And Scholars have poured extreme energy and passion into ”Cruisin” that can be easily multiplied in a live show.
