Florida indie-pop band Driveaway have stepped out of their comfort zone on their new single, “Wishing Well“, out today. Swapping synth-driven indie-pop earworms for powerful guitar and drums, the angsty new track documents too many days bleeding together from putting on a front for others and where that breaking point lies. Listen to it now below.
On the single, lead singer Trenton Ropp said, “Recently we’ve all been listening to heavier rock music, so that led to us trying out heavier tones with our guitar parts. We were surprised to find that the rawer, driven guitar tones spawned a lot of melodies and parts that we never would have made otherwise in the writing room (our living room)!”
He continues, “In songs before this, we were getting very detail-oriented with recordings, very carefully polishing all of our synth and guitar tones to a T. Although I do love that style of production, the discomfort that comes with incorporating raw tones and sounds based purely on gut reaction is extremely exciting for us right now.”
