Punk. Funk. Rock. Soul. The main ingredients in a potent witch's brew that The BellRays have been mixing for a long time now. Returning with their first full new album since the release of lack Lightning' in 2010. The BellRays strip down to the meat of what music means to them."We take our ear where our heart lives in simple song writing, making ourselves and hopefully all who hear it feel good," explains singer Lisa Kekaula. "We are proud of its simplicity and love how the new songs sound like old friends. This release is a collection of songs that illustrates why we do what we do. We are not 20 year olds and that's okay. We are proud of our mileage. Viability, trend and meaning are up to the eye of the beholder.we like to rock." With each song, The BellRays play with the formula. The dynamics shift and change from straight ahead rockers like @Bad Reaction@ @Junior High@ and @Never Let a Woman@ to more rock&pop songs like @I Can-t Hide@ and @Brand New Day@. @Man Enough@ features tornado drumming and Caravanesque guitar solos. How do you make the dark sound light_ Listen to @Perfect@, which is heavy while singing about finding that rhythm together. @Now@ spreads out with a simple melody and message of being in the moment. @Every Chance I Get@ gets to the blues with its plaintive resolution to use time as wisely as possible. @Love and Hard Times@ closes the album with an easy, R^B tinged lyric reminiscent of Levon Helm and The Band.
