The Driver Era

Like the band name, the music of The Driver Era captures a certain classic feeling while looking toward tomorrow. With the two brothers, Ross and Rocky Lynch, writing, performing, and producing most of the tracks, their stylistically unpredictable pop also conjures up every romantic association with heading out on the open road: limitless possibility, the thrill of escape, a refusal to stay in one place for any real length of time. On their debut single "Preacher Man," The Driver Era channel their restless creativity into what's arguably one of pop music's most epic themes: the existential crisis. With its raw rock-and-roll energy and gospel-like intensity, the track unfolds in stomping rhythms, heavy piano riffs, and soulful vocals that slip from free-form confession to feral howl. But despite the spiritual undertones, "Preacher Man" telegraphs a weary desperation and uneasy lack of faith (sample lyric: "My mouth is just too damn dry to utter out a prayer").
