Picking up where they left off with debut single I Wanna Know, Just A Ride are back with another hard-hitting alternative rock anthem in their new single Razor, released 16th April 2021. A crushing main riff is at the core of the track, taking you on a journey back to the sounds of ’90s Seattle, then hurtling back to the present day with melodic hooks and driving beats.
Lyrically, Razor explores the clash between integrity and ambition; the yin and yang of competing virtues within ourselves. As the song states, “Everything is a consequence of someone else’s lies”.
Just A Ride are on a mission to revive the spirit of the early ’90s alternative rock scene that burst out of Seattle and influenced a generation. Huge fans of Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam, the UK-based four-piece draws influences from that era. Combining this with their millennial punk rock and nu-metal upbringing, the result is a sound that carries the legacy of grunge with a contemporary twist.
Founded by former Violent Delight bandmates Rod Henderson (vocals) and Drew Lowe (guitar), drummer Alex Bailey and bassist Russ Stedman complete the lineup. Having recently recorded their debut album, the band is ready to take the rock world by storm. Scheduled for release in September, the album is currently being mixed by the legendary Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Therapy, Biffy Clyro, The Pixies).
