When Our Lives Were Young: Observe the 93rd drop skate-filled visuals for ‘TRL’

Reminding us of a happier time when life seemed much more fun and joyful, Observe the 93rd takes us back to innocent days when the sun was bright and the music loud with ‘TRL‘.

Observe the 93rd is a Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania-based indie alternative rock band. They make an expressive blend of music vibrations that causes your whole body to be engulfed into the moment.

The focus will always be raw, authentic expression. The songs are guided by a feeling, an idea, an experience, failure, triumph, suffering, joy…any abstract internal entity that yearns to be externalized.” ~ Observe the 93rd

Featuring explosive vocals that bends your ears back into place, with guitar riffs attached that has you thinking back to classic bands like Blink 182 and Good Charlotte. With honest lyrics that shows us how life can twist around and bring you down if you aren’t careful, this is a reflective skate-filled journey which has you recalling a much simpler time.

TRL‘ from the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania-based alt-rock act Observe the 93rd, is a full-blooded effort that causes you to reflect on the moment, as you treasure when things seemed way better back in the day. Friends were around and less people were constantly distracted by technology, as you just joined up together and rocked out. Just the way life should be.

Observe the 93rd – punchy, potent, power-pop with new single ‘TRL’

Observe the 93rd

Based in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Observe The 93rd make a hell of a racket for a duo; that’s intended as a compliment, both vocalist/guitarist Derek Henry and drummer Dylan Zepp making some formidably good alt-rock power-pop noise. ‘TRL’ opens with a picked guitar line that’s kinda reminiscent of Blink 182’s ‘Adam’s Song’ or ‘I Miss You’, gently reverb-ed and turned up front and centre in the mix, before the track smacks you in the face like a badly-landed kick-flip; yeah, it’s got that ‘skater-punk’ feel in parts, a little of Simple Plan or Good Charlotte, but there’s an extra bit of heaviosity to the guitars, too, along with a Calling-like SERIOUSLY pop -driven, hook-laden catchiness to the chorus that works its way into your head really, really easily and then refuses to ever leave again.

It’s an absolute belter of a tune. You can check out Observe the 93rd on YouTube or here.

That Extra Edge: Observe the 93rd sharpen up the mic with the rock anthem ‘Archaic’

As their quick-fire sound of carnage stretches your mind like a fragile elastic band, Observe the 93rd makes all parts of your speakers shake in disbelief, with the shock-educing new banger called ‘Archaic‘.

Observe the 93rd is a powerfully struck two-piece alternative rock band from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. They build up stream like the click of a lighter — and smoke forcefully into our lives with a fiery performance of epic magnitudes — that has you turning this up all the way real loud, to get the best experience possible.

The focus will always be raw, authentic expression. The songs are guided by a feeling, an idea, an experience, failure, triumph, suffering, joy…any abstract internal entity that yearns to be externalized. Sometimes the expression of this is a means of reflection, sometimes a means of relief and survival, and other times merely an exploration of the mind or ideas.” – Observe the 93rd

Archaic‘ from Pennsylvania two-piece alt-rockers Observe the 93rd, teaches us about the wild world that is currently transpiring before our eyes. There are so many demons around and we need to extinguish them quickly, otherwise they shall burn your important senses down like a tree burning in the forest. This is sublime stuff and a new rock song that certainly has your attention, due to its heart-stopping ferocity and excellent execution.

Hear this fine new song on Spotify and see more on their IG music page.

Existentially meta lyricism meets emotive alt electro-rock in Observe the 93rd’s latest single ‘awareness of death’

What Davey Havoc started in the 90s, Observe the 93rd are finishing with their latest atmospheric electro-rock release ‘awareness of death’.

With hints of Reznor in the darkly mesmerising single perfectly rounding off the duo’s eccentric and sporadically caustic sound, awareness of death isn’t a single that you can listen to half-heartedly.

The symphonic layers wrap themselves around the existentially meta lyricism which serves up lyrics such as ‘We all know that this is more abstract than any dream’, making it all too easy to get lost in a mind hole as you listen to this contemplatively artful single unfold.
