Formed in 2005 from the great city of Cleveland, Ohio, Drenalin is back with another hit with their release of, “Hope.”
Being a malleable staple that dabbles in the sounds of New Wave, Rap, Alternative R&B, Post-Hardcore, Country Rock, Pop, acoustic, piano, and multiple stringed instruments, they bring forth luxurious hard-hitting energy that caters to their Hard Rock/Heavy Metal fan base.
Taking the high-impact energy down to a level of smooth ballads and hopefulness, Drenalin brings forth the depths of, “Hope.” In a chilling piano forward narrative, you’re taken into a reverberated resonance that trickles into ubiquitous storytelling. With a heavenly female vocal taking the lead, the venture into a cutting-edge dispensary of thought-provoking emotion has you hanging onto the edge of your seat.
Drenalin exudes a path of flexibility in the variety of hues that they provide. With a starry-eyed message of finding belonging from the exhilarating strength bared through hardships, we can’t help but get lost in the progression as, “Hope,” builds with the harmonious bliss provided.
Projecting us to a celebration of the hope we find from within, Drenalin truly bends genres as they push the envelope for what’s to come. Proving that they can fit into any dreamscape called upon, the artistic versatility glows from this band.
As the triumphant joys come pouring through your headphones, the narrative that is, “Hope,” ramps up as we escalate to sights not yet discovered with the musical creations from Drenalin. Effortlessly cascading upon the victorious tenors the instrumentation holds, the melodic effervescence heightens our senses in this sonic expedition waiting to be explored by the world.
We were taken back by the artistic versatility presented to us in, “Hope.” What was it like collaborating with a female vocalist in order to portray the distinctive sound we hear and love?
Cat Lally is the female vocalist featured in Hope. Cat has been a godsend to Drenalin, not only through her beautiful and powerful vocals but with her ability to convey the emotional prowess that this song and the domestic violence movement deserve. With such a powerful message behind the song, it was imperative that the instrumental and vocals were performed with musical prestige in order to effectively convey the story of and support the awareness of domestic violence.
What is the meaning behind the lyrical message in this single?
Hope tells the story of a domestic violence survivor and her path to self-empowerment and eventual breaking free from the chains of this societal disease. The story is told in a three-part movement with the first scene showing a trapped and fragile survivor. The second scene portrays the survivor’s realization that she alone has the power and strength to change her life. The third and final scene shows the rebirth of the survivor into a strong and confident woman who now is in control of her own life and future.
How would you say that “Hope,” holds up to other songs offered up on your catalog?
Hope is by far the most unique song that Drenalin has written thus far and this excites us for many reasons! The upcoming album “Unrestricted”, just as the title suggests, doesn’t fit into one or two genres, but spans from rock to electronic to symphonic pop as you hear in “Hope.”
Catering to a wide audience, what are you hoping that your audience takes away from, “Hope?"
Our hope is that this song will speak to past, present, and future survivors of domestic violence with its true and open content. We hope that this song offers strength and empowerment to those who are survivors of domestic violence, those currently dealing with domestic violence, and ultimately to all those who are struggling with any hardship in their lives. The heart of Hope’s message is that you cannot always rely on others to make a better life for yourself, but you can always make a better life for yourself.
Next, we will be planning our “Stay Strong Against Domestic Violence” movement where we will be using all of our platforms including “Hope,” to spread awareness of domestic violence and do whatever we can to help those in need. Additionally, we will be releasing two more singles off the upcoming album, “Unrestricted," and eventually release the album in the summer.
