Vinyl Arch Rodeo - See the Sun

Independent artist based in Israel Vinyl Arch Rodeo recently released a 3rd single ‘See the Sun’, a classic-indie-90's style rock song, from the debut album Herodotus, that will be released in April.
See the Sun is a type of a stadiums’ anthem; it was written mainly as a desire for escapism and ambition to find a safe place, but it attracted a great deal of emotions. It’s got the right building up, inspiring lyrics, surrounding, and comforting harmonies, that leads up to an explosion that makes you feel that you can do anything you want if you only put your heart into it.

The Metal Byrds, coming up band from Texas shares thoughts...

The Metal Byrds

For a while now I've been spinning tracks from The Metal Byrds, a band from Austin Texas with a strong Rock sound and several albums under their belt. I know they are now working on something new with lots of studio time. I managed to steal a little of their time for a little chat with Suzanne the lead singer.

Q: How did you first get into music?
Personally, I’ve been into music since a child. Growing up in the 80s in London England, music was everywhere. The punk and pop scenes were huge, and I remember singing along to the radio as a kid.

Q: Did someone inspire you to make music the way you do?
Yes, Sly Rye, The Metal Byrds guitar player had these great songs when I first met him. He would play some fantastic guitar riffs, and I told him, let’s turn them into something, and our sound is what we got. He is the real inspiration of the band.

Q. Is your inner world feeding your creativity?
Uh, I would say inner and outer. I take a lot of my inspiration for my creativity from things that happen in my everyday life, especially my interactions with other people I come across, at work, at home, when I’m out an about. But the majority is from how I feel and my personal thoughts.

Q. What is your creative process like? Myself and Sly Rye do all the writing. It’s a collaborative effort that I could definitely not do without him. He is my muse and vise versa. We bounce ideas off each other until something sticks out, then we follow that rabbit hole until a song we feel is great emerges.

Q. How would you describe the music that you typically create?
We are 100% a ROCK band. Our style is rock with influences of heavy metal, punk, pop and grunge with a sprinkle of hair metal… lol.

Q. What is your favorite song to perform?
By far, Machine Man! It’s such a rocker, and we have a good handle on that song.

Q. Which famous musicians do you admire?
The whole band loves KISS. We are all huge KISS fans. We also love Journey, Heart, April Wine, Iron Maiden and Pat Benatar. You can hear all those influences in our music.

Q. Who would you most like to collaborate with? WOW, if we could, it would be a dream come true to do a collab with KISS, for sure!

Q. If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
KISS, again… lol.

Note: When you guys open for KISS, I expect an invite !

Q. What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
I think just like anybody, we would all be working, living life, trying to survive in this rough world. We all already do that, it’s just we have music to fall back on and be an escape from our everyday problems.

Q. How does your work comment on current social or political issues?
The majority of our music doesn’t. We have made a conscious decision to not be political or controversial in any way. Our music is just music, about our personal thoughts and feelings. We, however, did write a song, the title track of our latest EP, called Life In 20. It was a recollection of all the stuff that was happening in 2020. It was a crazy year, and what better inspiration to write a song about!

Q. What’s next for you?
We are currently working on our next album, which will be our 4th release. Not sure yet if it will be another EP or a full length album, but we shall see.

Q. What is one message you would give to your fans?
We would like to say, Thank you for your support for our music and our band. We cannot and would not do this without the support of people who belive in us and the music we are making. We would also like to say to keep supporting Indie artists, because all of us are working hard, and doing everything by ourselves, and we all need support!
