Pennan Brae has released single Synergy

Pennan Brae has dropped the latest single ‘Synergy’ pulling many elements from the 80’s Rock scene, to create this loud and electric piece.

Kicking off with a heavy riff on the electric guitar as the hard-hitting drum beat intertwines, they’re not afraid to be loud and crazy and that shows throughout this piece with their own unique twist of pure Rock and Roll that is portrayed throughout.

Having those low-pitched raucous tones to the vocals adding that rough edge as the vocals begin to get higher, Making sure to keep that heaviness throughout each second, with the clash of the instrumentals.

Letting the instrumentals have their moment to shine by adding in that killer shred of the guitar solo and intertwining the thunderous drum beat. Pennan Brae has dropped a real Rock hit with the perfect amount of noise through the instrumentation and the deep vocals.

The Thinking Men Release Official Video For Rock Track “I Wanna Be Good”

Rock music has infinite permutations in modern day. Under every genre, there’s a subgenre that hybrids with rock. When folks complain about a lack of rock, they ought to be more specific. Rock is everywhere, but the blues is scarce these days. Other than a few big acts, rock has had to adapt to survive. The Thinking Men seek to remind us of why we like to add rock to our music. They remember where rock came from and they know how to inject the blues into good, energetic bursts of sound creating that feeling we’ve been missing.

Their song I Wanna Be Good lends itself to a fairly simple, formulaic approach. There’s no need for too much going on in the verses as they’re a means to an end, and that end is a rip-snorting time full of aggression and virility. It’s also downright fun. This song has all the raw catchiness of garage rock with the soul and style of blues rock. The Thinking Men have form and function in mind as they bring together all the things you’ve wanted to return in a new package that can keep up with the loudness wars while retaining its rooted dignity. This can be a dangerous game though, reviving old flames. As the lyrics state, if you can’t be good, you’ll wind up dead. Let’s see how long the Thinking Men can stay on that bull and remain good.
