You guys, Rocky and the Chapter are back AGAIN with their fourth release since this time last year, “They’re Not Supposed to Care About Us.” These guys are out of control, but that’s great news for the rest of us, since it means we get more kick-ass EPs like this one, released September 29th from Sniffling Indie Kids.
Right away, “Dream It” slams to life, strong and hard on the guitars, the vocals matching their force. Then, a softer side of the EP, “Give” is a bittersweet, melodic track that perfectly demonstrates Rocky and the Chapter’s ability to be vulnerable and powerful at the same time. “What do you say when you’re helpless and the world stands still to wait?” Catanese asks. “It’s taken everything I’ve made as I fall to earth, and try to raise.”
Last weekend I got to hang with Rocky and the Chapter for the filming of their new music video for the song “Sandbrook,” which came off their latest album, Aye. This is technically the second video from the album. Back in October, the band released a video for the track “Go for Gold,” which was made entirely of old national geographic film footage spliced together, and it’s pretty badass in its own right.
Rocky and the Chapter released their new four track EP, Aye, back on October 28, and it’s a shame it has taken me this long to write the review. I listened to it the day it was released. I even sent Rocky a message on Facebook because it hadn’t been uploaded yet and I was waiting for it. I’m very impatient, especially when it comes to new music I’ve been looking forward to.
