A catchy chorus right at the beginning, a crazy violin, rocking guitar sounds and a good dose of good humor: That’s the sound of the new single “Our Song” by the Finnish-German band “Dark Ride Brothers”.
“Here’s a song for a lawyer, song for a waitress, song for a hard-working man! Here’s a song for a fighter, song for a preacher, givin’ everyday the best that they can”
The new song by Dark Ride Brothers is dedicated to all those people who go to work every day and do their best – clearly in front of everyone or behind the scenes. “Our Song” gives them a little breather. The song is harmonious, radio-friendly and in the tradition of North American country rock. The song has already been sung along by many fans at several concerts.
– “The best elements are usually the simplest ones, so we’ve stuck to that again: a chorus at the beginning and three chords as the foundation. The song contains the kind of elements that are always important to me, too” Vesa says about the idea behind the song.
“Our Song” was produced by the band itself, whose international production team includes several world-renowned professionals in the music industry. With Teemu Aalto as their producer, the Dark Ride Brothers have created a single that impresses with its precision. When it comes to quality, as always, the band has made no compromises, and so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the single travelled as far as Los Angeles, where it was mastered by American legend Howie Weinberg. In his thirty-year career Howie has, among others, created the sound for the albums of Def Leppard, Sheryl Crow, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the White Stripes. Howie Weinberg was selected to give the single a particularly authentic sound.
– “In the final stage of the mixing process, our producer Teemu Aalto said that this song definitely had to be mastered by Howie Weinberg. One thing led to another, and suddenly our single was on the table of the absolute legend of mastering Howie Weinberg in Los Angeles, “Sven says.
Another focus was on the vocals, which is why Dark Ride Brothers engaged the talented Finnish singer Janita Tiussa for the backing vocals.
– “In Country Rock, female voices play a great role, and Janita’s fantastic voice adds a whole new dimension to the song. Janita is a professional singer, and we are sure that we will hear from her in the future,” Sven and Vesa say.
The Dark Ride Brothers have been garnering hundreds of thousands of plays on Spotify, and new songs are already waiting for their release (check out the end of the video for “Our Song” and y0u may get a hint!).
