Jam of the Week: Derrival – Ice Cream
I am loving this new release from our neighbors to the north. Vancouver based Derrival has found a perfect balance between Pop and Indie Rock with their latest release, “Ice Cream“.
After a 2 year hiatus, the 5-piece group is ready to give listeners a taste of their debut album… and it taste like ice cream. Lush production, memorable vocals, a huge hook and an all around great vibe have me eager to hear the rest of the project. While the bass and guitar create a strong enough base, the addition of keys, melodic synth lines and some other Electronic elements take it up a notch and make it hit that much harder.
Regarding the groups dynamic, their Facebook info gives some more insight:
As a young band that effectively grew up as musicians their songs are often critiques or call outs about what it means to live in a modern world. Their eclectic mix of pop, rock, and electronic sounds characterize a generation that had to learn how to find art and meaning in the seemingly endless noise of the digital age.
