The future of rock ‘n’ roll
There’s a reason legions of young rock fans fall in love with their parents’ records. It’s the same reason so many radio stations still play classic rock: Great music never gets old. The Roomsounds, a foursome from Dallas, have studied those classics, of course — The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers are major influences, along with Big Star, The Black Crowes, Ryan Adams, Oasis and The Jayhawks. But The Roomsounds make their own sound, as evidenced by their single, “Lay My Head Down,” a rocker with a bluesy southern tinge that’s almost a manifesto about the healing power of rock ‘n’ roll. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Ala., at the legendary FAME Studios, the song captures the spirit of those who’ve been there before, from Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett to Duane Allman. Like their heroes, The Roomsounds craft songs durable enough to become tomorrow’s classics. Rodney Hall, son of FAME founder, Rick Hall, labeled them “the future of rock ‘n’ roll.” Clearly, it’s in good hands.
