Notes: Yes. These ARE the FREE tracks you were looking for...
Today none of us could go a minute without texting, Facebooking, or playing a downloaded game. Technology has become so much a part of our lives it’s almost scary. We constantly move and sometimes miss what is right in front of our faces. Derrival sings about the modern age in the following lyrics:
Growing up in a modern age,
Taking pleasure in past art,
Love seemed so easy on the page,
The hardest is finding a place to start.
I can’t shake this feeling we’re moving too fast,
Teach ‘em how to drive so they don’t crash,
Hold them youngsters close,
Where you’ll be in a year no one knows.
During Derrival’s second track of their album The Autumn Game / Modern Age Kids 7″ “Modern Age Kids” the music is still rocking, but at times the song slows down and it seems as if lead singer Adam Mah’s voice slows, quiets, and sounds a little sad that the world is moving way too fast. They tell audiences to slow down and realize what’s right in front of you. The guitars, drums, and Mah’s voice mesh so well together and during the instrumental parts of the song you may find yourself tapping your toes and moving your head. Mah’s voice might remind listeners of Isaac Slade’s, the lead singer of The Fray.
Out of Langley, British Columbia, Derrival is made up of friends Adam Mah (Rhythm Guitar/Lead Vocals), Glen Jackson (Lead Guitar/ Vocals), Shane Stephenson (Keyboard), Deven Azevedo (Bass), and Daniel Kozlowski (Drums).
The album begins with “Autumn Game” in which the first few notes of the song features two dueling guitars, a bass and electric guitar that if you listen closely can be heard throughout the song. They are the background of the song, but the fuel for it. And then at the end, all the instruments start playing really loud and the entire band and a crowd sings Cause it’s a free, free for all, after all in the last few lines of the song. With how it’s recorded it sounds like a live recording, because of the echoes. It sounds like it was so much fun to record.
According to their Facebook biography, “Autumn Game” is about the transition between high school and real-life when all the decisions you make are your responsibility. The entire song sounds like it’s a party, because that’s really what high school is, until you have to choose your future.
Derrival’s next goal is to create an entire full length album and that’s the only thing listeners won’t like about The Autumn Game / Modern Age Kids 7″ is it’s not longer. Their music and lyrics are so powerful listeners will want to come back for more!
