This is a Revolver – “What I Need”


Los Angeles-based act This is a Revolver emit heavy-rocking sentiments of dissatisfaction on rousing new single “What I Need.” Thunderous guitar bursts drive into the “I think I wanna be famous, and live inside your mind,” vocal aspirations — though reminding that, for now, being able to pay the bills on time would suffice. Nikki Born’s howling vocal ferocity resonates during the invigorating chorus, traversing seamlessly into the grungy passion of the verses, where more debonair vocals engage. The track is a firm success from This is a Revolver.

“It’s always felt like there is a giant gaping wound in my chest that is easily agitated, won’t heal and eats up whatever I feed it but is never satisfied,” Born explains. “That sentiment is at the core of the song, the cover art and ultimately of me.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
