SILHOUETTE RISING – Rehab

Last February, the American band Silhouette Rising released their latest single Rehab.
Rehab got me hooked right from the beginning. Starts with a nice, short build up with well-performed vocals, and brilliant dynamics through the whole verse. When it gets to the chorus, the keyboard instantly gets my attention and mixed with an extremely catchy vocal melody makes it a great pop tune.
On the other hand, the lyrics sound a bit too “teenage angst” for me. I am afraid the subject is terribly unoriginal.
The song is short, concise and straight forward, and the boys clearly know what they are doing. Well done for the Massachusetts guys!
The only bit that doesn’t work for me is the keyboard “solo”. It is too predictable and meaningless. I have to admit I am not a “solo” fan.
One last thing- some of the actors in the video clip are really lousy and just watching them kind of bothers me.
