Robbie Rapids might be the incarnation of long-lost rock. With swinging guitar rhythms and strong lyrical combinations a driving force, he brings it every time. Beginning his music journey in a high school cover jazz band, he performs consistently under many band names. This is his latest single with David Levene, Love of Your Life.
It is an uncanny resemblance to Tom Petty that Robbie Rapids has in this song. With the vocals and jangly rhythm the focus, David Levene creates an intriguing piece of art for Robbie. The music loops in different eras of rock, while Robbie orchestrates it with enviable confidence. Songs about love can get cheesy when you’ve heard them enough, but Robbie Rapids has an interesting choice of words. It creates this powerful vibe that you’re a part of, strains of psychedelic rock are felt as well. With David’s arrangement being the incubator for Robbie, there’s no doubt that you’ll get lightning in a bottle!
You could hear this song in movies like High Fidelity, Crazy Heart and even Soul Kitchen. It is a fun, rock centred vibe, with parts of the song giving strong imagery of romance and melting hearts.
You can hear the best of him in many playlists, he is featured on many indie ones. Jasmine Girl has been a popular hot hit, and tracks like Rock Ain’t Dead are superb tracks that are reassuring gems. His sound is a link back to a time when live instruments dominated the scene. I have no doubt he dominates the stage every time he performs. Listen to the single and enjoy his music on Spotify!
