Keeping it real: Scottish songwriter/bassist Realer blocks out the noise to ‘Stay Rad’

Realer urges us all to stay cool and do what we can in order to stay sane during these wild times on the bass-driven music video for ‘Stay Rad‘.

Ricky Cocozza aka Realer is a self-motivated Glenrothes, Scotland-based indie-pop singer-songwriter and bassist who has taken it on himself to create music and not rely on anyone else. He is on a path to learning new skills each day and his drive and determination is rather inspiring.

With a massive 80’s and modern synth-pop feel grabbing your heart and with bass guitar melodies to make you look twice, combined with an honest touch of realness; there is so much to love on this catchy new single.

His lyrics about YouTube addiction, getting wrapped up for a while in the news and not living in fear, strikes a chord in your mind and you finding yourself nodding your head in agreement.

This is a song you can groove to and have a laugh at the same time. He doesn’t take himself overly serious and this is a relief to the senses and the fun lyrics combined with a positive attitude, is exactly what the world needs more of. With a vibrant voice and a funky bass together intertwined, this is an artist that drops the truth mic on the ground to much applause.

Stay Rad‘ from Scottish bassist/singer-songwriter Realer is a true story of how we need to keep it together, stay creative and distract the wondering mind from all the nonsense around. Keeping your mind sane is the number one priority and having a bit of fun while reaching your goals helps your mindset too.
