Canadian post-hardcore punk-pop rocker, Chris Nine has unveiled his new single, “the rage”, along with a video to accompany the release.
The new supercharged single lands ahead of the Toronto-based artist’s new EP, The Heavy.
“the rage” is a harrowing opus that unveils the duality of love and the consequences of our actions. This viewpoint puts the listener’s experience front and center, creating a connection using emotionally complex themes while embedding them within expertly produced music you wouldn’t typically hear from a newer artist. Chris Nine bears his soul to tell a tale that’s as much filled with tragedy as it is hope.
“I show up, a fight last night was what you
Had to call it
I’m so sorry, I’m still lonely
Can this be our moment”
Lyrical vulnerability has always been a part of Chris Nine’s artistic journey; it seemed inevitable that the appropriate considerations were taken when considering the overall blending of genres that make up his sound.
A polished orchestration of razor-sharp guitar riffs, supercharged vocals, and stadium-filling drums, Chris Nine’s delivery is a supersonic yet melancholy musical offering sure to honour his rock contemporaries. Channeling various artistic influences across punk and post-rock music, this spellbinding synthesis of sound harnesses the power embedded within his ominous melodies and intertwines them with his bold perspective.
