Music is all about the emotions and art created. With powerhouse vocals, cutting guitar riffs, and memorable melodies, Austin-Based band Corbella represents this to its fullest extent. It’s quite obvious when you take a listen to their record titled “Go.” Led by lead singer Britny Lobas, her distinctive voice will take you through multiple dimensions and open up an artistic mind of fantasy where you will feel every passion and emotion behind her dynamically driven delivery.
“GO” has a significant amount of sass, fierceness, and piercing vocal projection. It strikes you like electrocution and leaves you wanting more. The amount of grit and rock n roll rasp behind the production of the instruments and her vocals is something super mesmerizing. Corbella keeps the listener captivated with a magnetic music touch to our ears. Isn’t this what art does? Touches us with the fascinating creation and sensations we experience while connecting with it? “GO” opens the pathway for a highly-fastened encounter that you won’t forget. Britny’s voice is measurably augmented. Her range is out of this world and the control she has with her vocal belts was BADASS. Corbella is a band to be on the look-out for & GO is the Rock n Roll artistic creation you didn’t know you needed until now.
Welcome Corbella! We’re glad to have you back at BuzzMusic! What made you guys come together to pursue this Rock n Roll journey together?
Britny: Thank you! Definitely our passion and love for the music. Myself, bassist Russell and drummer Alec had been bandmates in a previous project for a while and really enjoyed working together. We decided we all wanted to go in a different direction. So end of 2017 we took a few months to re-brand, re-focus, and really find the right sound we wanted. Shortly after, Ricky joined us. He brought a whole new sound and different musical influences to the table, which was just what we were all looking for. We started jamming, then writing and the music just starting flowing out. We all just vibed great. Every song that we write is a journey of some kind and it's been amazing to create with my friends and share it with so many people!
Are you influenced by any bands? Or would you say your style was more self-invented?
Britny: Having four members in a band, we have four different types of influences. Which is great! Because all of our influences impact our songwriting. For me, I grew up singing in church, so my roots dig deep in gospel and soul music. Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Amy Winehouse, to more modern day Christina Aguilera. Then you know, my dad is musician and rock n roller so of course I was raised on the greats. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and The Stones to name a few. Currently I’m really digging Welshly Arms, Walk The Moon and Zz Ward.
But that’s what is so cool about four types of influences. They all intertwine and that’s how our “Corbella” sound is invented. It’s unique and its own thing because of all the influences we all bring.
What is the most challenging aspect of fusing together multiple personalities into one unit for the band? How do you overcome this obstacle?
Britny: That’s a good question. With four people writing in a room, it can be challenging. Except that I think because there’s four of us, we all kind of know to just listen to one other a little more and not hammer in our own agenda. We’ve all learned to trust each other. If someone comes in with an idea with passion behind it, we’re going to all go with it. And so we work well together, and respect each other.
“GO” was a killer song that we connected with immensely! What was the meaning behind the passionate lyrics?
Britny: Thank you! Personally for me at the time, I really needed to let go of something that was really hard. I knew it was the best thing for me and the right thing to do. It’s a song about finding the strength within yourself to say, “Ok I got this” and “I can do this” A song about triumph after hard struggles, and about letting go and finding yourself. I think so many people can relate to this. I think the song inspires people and makes you feel something.
Can we expect any upcoming exciting performances from Corbella?
Britny: Yes! Starting this fall we will be hitting the road and doing small tour runs in and around Texas! Which we are really looking forward to it! Then this December we will be releasing another single and having a big release show here in Austin!
