Showcasing his gravelly flow and soaring baritone singing voice, Rod Wave lays out his life goals on “Boom.” Riding atop summery synths and percolating rhythm guitar, “Boom” is a highlight from the Hunger Games 2 mixtape and a primary example of Rod’s distinctive approach to melody, as he stretches his vowels like a street Luther Vandross.

All the while, Barry’s signature “sweet and addictive” vocals dispatch lyrics ingrained with salt water wisdom and stirring storytelling.

Hey Skope Mag – Indie Rockers Somedays return with another banger in ‘Knock Out’

Drenched to the bone with strange atmospherics and modulation, ‘Knockout’ ostensibly takes its cues from the Brian Wilson notebook of oddball surf rock. Sounding like a gritty and frenetic call to arms, Knockout goes through 5 key changes in 2 minutes and 34 seconds, all the while going from one singalong to the other. At the minute mark the song blooms into a lysergic krautrock-influenced wig-out that washes over the listener like an awesome wave. “The hardest part of recording this song was getting the mistakes to be just right” says rhythm guitarist Eugenio, “Gege” to his bandmates – “We had to go against our own sense of timing to get that swaying jump that you hear right from the first chord – we had to record the part over and over till it felt just, well, wrong.”
