Tempe, Arizona based RadioDriveBy has been slowly releasing music this past year and their latest effort, a single entitled “Go All Night”, just might be the biggest potential ear-worm of the season.
 
Favoring a more pop sound than the past, the track opens up instantly with Trent Clark’s powerful vocals, recalling the perfect summer night. “We can sleep tomorrow, it’s alright” Clark tells us right before a catchy guitar riff kicks in and holds strong for the rest of the song. By the end of the chorus though, the all too familiar “ooh ooh ohhs” of most pop songs fly through the speakers. As cliche as some of the melodies sound, they have a unique, edgy twist on them almost as if RadioDriveBy is mapping their own take on pop. As the song moves on Clark’s vocals continue to impress me, very reminiscent of the feeling the first time I listened to The Summer Set.
 
Their release from earlier this year, MMXII still holds onto a more rock sound, so I was surprised at just how poppy this song is. The track is solid though, and it shows how willing the band is to transform and grow. Hopefully this song is an indicator as what’s to come for RadioDriveBy, and with promises of more releases this year, I look forward to hearing what these guys have created.
 
Overall and despite the generic pop-song-formula overtone, I really enjoy this track. RadioDriveBy is ready to develop their own spin on the genre and I’m really looking forward to their upcoming releases. So, as the song says, “somebody play that song again” please.
