The RVMES - Single Review: Say Something

23 Apr 2023 // A review by Corinne Rutherford
Auckland based four piece The RVMES (pronounced Rooms, a mix of rum and tunes incorporating a cheeky V where the U should be), have just released their latest single Say Something. The genre defying band which produces a “musical stir fry” of ever changing sound has delivered a reggae/jazz inspired track that captures the essence of a warm summer evening.

The RVMES are wonderfully adept at mixing up genres and producing a solid sound, Say Something is no exception delivering a relaxed laid back groove.

The song which tells the story of conversations with a new found love is a soothing, soulful tune which highlights the clear relaxed vocals of Edwin Judd. There is a simplicity in the arrangement which gives the listener a carefree vibe that transports you to a sun soaked beach, cocktail in hand.

Heavy on mellow guitar the track is accompanied by cool reggae sounding percussion incorporating a break of synth complementing the smooth tone.

This band's latest track is a cruisey diversion from some of their more indie rock style numbers. Nonetheless it is a brilliant track which flows in an effortless manner combining chill rhythm and an easy going melody creating a tight sound and delivering the feel good factor in spades.

The RVMES are original with their ever changing sound delivering consistently fresh music.

Band members are Edwin Judd (vocals, guitar), Richard Moore (lead guitar), Ronaldo Lima (bass) and Logan Fox (drums).

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
