SoundBytes: Paul and Romeo Ominously Tell Us to “Send Letters”

With an orchestral chorus, a dark Type O Negative feel, and a groove laden rhythm section reminiscent of Prince’s “Darling Nikki”, the latest single from accomplished film composer and actor Paul Lewis and veteran drummer extraordinaire John Sanders comes accompanied by a cinematic vision of a music video and a penchant for the dramatic. With the musical flair of Bowie meets the Foo Fighters and a touch of Zeppelin, the musical stew that is Romeo Rage is a delightful find for any alternative rock junkie and this darker, emotive track straight up thumps.

With a massive amount of critical praise on his previous solo releases, Lewis comes into this project ready to unleash something both familiar and new that is sure to please. While all 8 tracks on Sky’s Rust are strong, starting with “Send Letters” just feels right. As the second track on the album, it works with the opener, “Rips”, to set a tone for what’s to come. Enjoy the video below and then check out the full album.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
