Canadian rock band, Rogue Proxy is back with their latest single, “She Turned Around”.
“She Turned Around” is a song about “about simple things done just right.” Turns out, however, combining classic rock elements with a sophisticated, ever-changing AI engine turned out to be… Not so simple?
“She Turned Around was inspired by literally having a girl turn around to say goodbye,” the band shares, noting that one of the co-fronts’ two-year-old daughter had done so as the pair of friends-turned-band leads were wrapping up a video call working through new ideas.
From there, Rogue Proxy merged the lyrical style of “She Turned Around” with a visual adaptation of Banksy’s “Girl With Balloon” — leading to the artistic rendering of the visualizer for the group’s newest release.
The single features vintage driven keys, rich full bass tone, a classic upfront drum sound, and, of course, dueling guitars. For this illegitimate love child between the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Daft Punk, these concepts are pretty familiar to Rogue Proxy, however, and have become part of their signature sound.
And what a sound they are developing; “She Turned Around” is a grooving rock ballad blending the iconic styles of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Crowes, and Lenny Kravitz. It has been described as “a lyrical tapestry [to] try [and] paint a portrait and let the listener see what they see.”
Lyrics like ‘the left bud in her ear, the right in mine, walking alone, side by side, in 4/4 time’ radiate, striking a sweet nostalgia chord from bygone eras of earlier rock, while also being a unique and clever lyrical adaptation.
