Listen :: Des Rocs - Let Me Live / Let Me Die
Words: Sam Geary
New York's Des Rocs - aka Danny Rocco, formerly one half of synth-rock duo Secret Weapons - follows his previous solo releases, 'HVY MTL DRMR' and 'Used To The Darkness', with this latest - 'Let Me Live / Let Me Die'.
Out now, the track is the third release from his self-titled debut EP, due to drop in October, and after opening on a stomping beat and taut guitar riffs, breaks out into an alt-rock anthem over three and a half minutes.
"One night I was feeling fed up with the NY music scene after some whack mixer. I went back to my dingy basement in Brooklyn at 4 am and the entire song flowed out in 30 minutes. I kept all the original vocals and guitar takes from that night," he relates. "It’s about frustration and freedom, about running against the grain."
