THE CRUEL INTENTIONS RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO "JAWBREAKER"
The bold quartet The Cruel Intentions keeps on pushing the boundaries with their unique, modern glam rock sound! Today, the band releases their new single and music video "Jawbreaker"! The second single off their upcoming debut "No Sign Of Relief", is a ridiculously catchy, 3-minute ride of pure rock'n'roll attitude and power, and definitely one of the album's highlights!
The band's vocalist, Lizzy DeVine, has commented:
"Sometimes when your pen hits the paper while writing a song you start to realize you’re actually having an inner monologue with your 20-something year old self. 'Jawbreaker' is the outcome of that. Whether it's a finger pointing or a mental high five to myself I’m not sure! But good times are always good times", and continued about the video: "Sometimes a cool location, a bunch of long haired rock n rollers and a hungover guy being chased by a crazy dude with a hammer is all you need to make a rock video! So we did and added some red smoke for flair."
THE CRUEL INTENTIONS - "NO SIGN OF RELIEF"
COMING SEPTEMBER 21
With this album, the band creates a young, original and modern expression, albeit with strong roots in the history of rock. Their music conveys a wide range of emotional topics, with a light mix of optimism and pessimism as their basic recipe, although the tragicomical view of the world excels throughout the album. The dichotomy of the dark side of fun, contra the bright views of making mistakes; the loss of falling off in life and not fitting into society, contra the bravery with daring to be yourself, to go your own ways – these are the underlying themes in this album.
In technical terms, the band plays around the esthetics of bands such as Guns ‘N Roses and Mötley Crue, and carries on the legacy of traditional glam rock into the contemporary youth of today. The songs are fast paced, humorous and at times really hard-hitting, especially with the assistance of Europe’s most clashing cowbell. This album reeks of confidence, and will certainly smite you with its persuasive musical turns. It’s groovy, angry, comical and sassy – bringing out the emotions of anger, joy, fun and confidence in the listener, all packaged beautifully in their 11 track album with the title ‘No Sign of Relief’.
