Rising talent RIP Kenny takes us on a sonic adventure on poignant debut album Escapism. Led by his trademark fusion of metal, punk, and melodic dubstep, the genre-blurring collection strikes a balance between thoughtful life lessons and powerful anthems on this story-led musical treat.
Stocked with tales of life, leisure, love, and loss, the album is not only a showcase of Kenny’s song writing prowess but encapsulates his ability to craft to vivid visuals blossoming in the majestic Oregon mountainscapes that elevate the narratives unfolding within each track.
Speaking of the album and the cinematic visuals, he says, “Everything about this album was crafted with each other aspect in mind, story influencing music, music influencing visual, visual influencing story — I think that’s what makes this record special. The journey isn’t an afterthought, it’s at the core of the whole thing. I wanted to make something thoughtful, timeless; something that lights a fire in your soul.”
With an atmospheric yet explosive craft that sees him pushing the boundaries of dubstep, RIP Kenny’s latest foray provides us with much-needed refuge.
