If you ever asked yourself what would happen if you combined The Mars Volta, Led Zeppelin and Red Hot Chili Peppers, boy do we have something perfect for you. Out of Boston, MA, today The Noise is premiering a brand new single from post-rock outfit Convey.
Taking influence from the aforementioned Led Zeppelin – you know, as most rock bands do (or at least should) – as well as Tool, Queens of the Stone Age and Circa Survive, Convey have created a sound that’s all their own. With Cedric Bixler-Zavala-like vocals and Royal Blood-esque riffage, Convey is a rock band paying homage to the past while also creating something fresh.
Showing just that, today The Noise is premiering the band’s bass-heavy single “Inside Out” taken from their upcoming Revival Records debut LP City Of Skin And Bone.
Speaking about the track’s musical flavor, bassist Luke Dennis commented on the Zeppelin influence saying, “Coupled with producer Jim Kaufman’s studio wizardry, ‘Inside Out’ conjures up Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti-era Led Zeppelin. Musically, we were trying to explore a funkier vibe laced with a more psychedelic dynamic while keeping the heavy swagger we like central to our sound.”
As for what the three-minute single represents, vocalist Ben Cohen opened up about the idea of it saying, “This song is mostly about displacement and how leaving everything you’re familiar with behind affects you and the people around you. The songwriting reflects feelings of personal sacrifice for the sake of freedom, something most people, and especially artists, can relate with in some way."
