Video Pick: Voltagehawk - Straight Razor

Fun part about writing reviews is continuing to find new bands to explore. I was sent this new music video by Voltagehawk for their newest song, “Straight Razor” and it sure is a head-bopper. Heavy riffs and explosive solos in one song – not much more you can ask for. Let’s dive into this song!

From the beginning it instantly captures you with the raw guitar and steady tempo. The excitement from riff to riff keeps you in tune for what is to come next. I felt the chorus was super catchy and I actually caught my self singing “BABY DON’T PLAY” when I knew it was coming. The melodies in the bridge to the chorus has a nice transition. To be honest I wasn’t expecting such a sick solo. It builds on top of itself so well second time second. Overall a hard rock song I can see myself throwing on a playlist. It looks like they out a ton of work into the motion graphics of the music video as well. Very flashy and grabs your attention right away, just like the song. I enjoy live show music videos and what they did with different angles and the lyric graphics on top was top notch.

Overall I think this was a pretty sweet release from Voltagehawk.  Give "Straight Razor" a spin and lets us know what you think!

  • Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV"
    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters. Tuning his usual rasp toward the traditional trap beat, the one word that can describe his 2020 single “Luv” love is, “classic”. The simplicity of the song’s intention… Read more

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more

    XHAANIA - PULL UP The last party you attended may feel like a midday dream from a far off time when feeling yourself included nails done, hair done and everything did.
