New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
The digital world has engulfed authenticity and genuine artistry in every field of work and culture. Take up any modern day movie or music file, the digital effect has contributed to most part of the work to enhance and tune the little blemishes and shortcomings of the artist. But still, in this age of digital improvisation, there are musicians with genuine passion and love for true music who have created such amazing crafts that they can rule the music industry for years to come. One such band is the Russ Still and The Moonshiners from Atlanta, Georgia, who has been crafting such melodious chimes which have rocked the internet media platforms with immense appreciation and recognition.
Hovering over a huge fan base, the band has been releasing singles for quite some time now. With their recently released single, Monkey See, from their upcoming album, Bootleg, they are all set to recreate their magic for a larger audience and more music lovers.
The single, Monkey See, opens over an intense and energetic musical prelude with heavy textured bass riff by Ed Usher
and pulsating drumming by Mitch Flanders. The prelude itself sets the mood of the song much before Russ Still leads the vocals with his highly balanced and well-pitched voice. Woven in the strings of Country Rock and classic rock, the track takes high and low lifts with the quick voice modulation and swift guitar strumming by Ben Still.
The heavy metallic rock strokes over the keyboard with clean tumbling notes of energy and enthusiasm glides so well with the overall ambiance of the track, that one could hardly distinguish the exact stroke when Russ had pitched his voice high. It's all the magic of a practiced hand on the musical instruments. Hats off to Cam Still for the invariant comfortness he has shown on the keyboard.
The lyrical structure of the song is pretty simple with easy vocabulary and rhyming verses, but the actual catch of the lyrics lies in the tiny little spree of energy that the words evoke while they are mouthed with an intense dose of high energy. The heavy musical arrangement does serve the purpose to hold the intensity in place while the verses change with a few moments of pauses or just simple musical orchestra.
A well-balanced audio that recreates the unique style and fashion of rock over a light-hearted and jovial word structure. Highly melodious the music is bound to grip the hearts of its audience and get a whole lot of tapping and cheering with upheld hands and swifting moves. A genuine pleasure is felt to get back to the world of pure rock and such versatile rockers.
A short appreciation applause for the recording team to have maintained the sound clarity which has further enhanced the feel and intensity of the track. The single, Monkey See, is surely a recommendation for people who love to hear genuine and hardcore rock music and for those who aren't too fond of rock, can just give it a try, who knows, the single might just change one's vision of rock sole.
