"It is wonderful to be able experience art without understanding how it was meant or what makes it good." (Kim Boekbinder said that during an interview I did with her) I might not have the biggest knowledge about music but I have a great passion for it. Passion is what counts.
I live in Berlin, Germany (born, raised and still resident) and this is my personal blog about music and other things that cross my way. Things I love to be exact. And even though I am German and my English is still not perfect, this blog is in English.
Thanks for sending all the music and keep it coming (except for EDM, please)! I found another gem amongst all those music for my irregular series “Music Submission Monday" where I feature my favourite song of an unsigned artist the submit their music. This time it’s from NYC Rockband Audio Revival.
The four piece consist of Jake Flaherty (Vocals), Ben DeFusco (Guitar, Vocals), Chad Flaherty (Bass) and Steve Purcell (Drums). They are making music together since 2012. When I first listened to “1095” I found the beginning and end quite irritation but the more I listened to more I was wondering why I was irritated at all. It gives the whole song a bit of “epicness”. Their musical influences are rather obvious: Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Black Keys, Muse, Stone Temple Pilots.
Even though the band is not religious they refer to a rather religious event with this song. “The year 1095 refers to November 27th 1095 when Pope Urban II launched the First Crusade to “recapture the Holy Land”. The song is basically a plea to end all violent extremism”, as singer Jake Flaherty explained to me. “The song was inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred last year.”
Have a good week and keep sending me your music - now also possible on https://fluence.io/Heilewelt,
