"Rio" is a track about romance in an idyllic town, where the sea is close and where you can’t help but run into old friends at every turn. Cutting through the song’s bouncy rhythm, the lead guitar is blurred in a reverb haze like summer eyes after a long day in a chlorine pool. Descending chromatic runs and a tinge of minor keys give the song that quintessential surf vibe. The song’s essence is the carefree, laid back bliss the seaside evokes in all of us. No schedules, no plans.
"“Rio” is a reflection of what brought the band together in the first place. In frustration, our music calls out for a more simple life free from the tedious complications of the modern world. In that sense, at our core we are optimistic, and it is that optimism that is the real driving force behind the sound."
alternative, rock, punk
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
