Here at Crowdsurf, we are introduced to many amazing bands every day, and this post is to showcase one that we discovered today.. The Driver Era! Keep scrolling to learn about the band and see what they’re up to at the minute!
First of all, for all those who are unfamiliar with the band, here is a brief ‘about the band’:
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 all of the tracks, their stylistically unpredictable music 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.
With massive hooks and immaculate production, songs like “Feel You Now” and “Low” show the tight musicianship that Ross and Rocky have honed over the years in their longtime band R5-a five-piece whose self-produced 2017 EP New Addictions was praised as “full of sharply constructed pop confections” by Rolling Stone. It was during that band’s recent tour, the two began dreaming up a new project that would allow them to explore their more experimental tendencies.
In between polishing off the new songs-and hitting the road for their first tour as The Driver Era, Ross is a critically acclaimed actor (he recently drew raves for his title role in the serial-killer biopic My Friend Dahmer and currently stars in Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). And when they’re not actively creating, the two are often out riding around, listening back to mixes and working out song ideas, constantly expanding what’s possible in The Driver Era.
If you’re wanting to listen to some of The Driver Era’s tracks, we recommend their most recent which have just been released- ”A Kiss“ and ”Forever Always” - two tracks that show growth in the Lynch brothers’ musicality since their debut single “Preacher Man”.
Both tracks can be listened to HERE on various platforms.
