This point of connection sees Krumple Krink use layered sonics, uneasy sounds and vibrant, electrical instrumentation to build a world for audiences to find their own moment of escape.

The newfangled Rock n’ Roll track from Justin Payne & Co. is set to be a grunge love anthem. “Together As One” is full of lively energy and touching lyrics. Payne describes how his life is changing throughout the song, but no amount of fame or distraction could deviate him from the one he loves. The tender lyrics contrast in the baddest way possible with Justin Payne’s gritty delivery.

With Payne on vocals and guitar, Dave Cerelli on bass guitar, and Eli Simon on drums, the instrumentals included in the song give it the rock and roll edge that we are all craving.
