Tobin Rock – ‘Cruel’
Hailing from Chicago, musician Tobin Rock has released the superb single ‘Cruel’, in November 2020. It is an alternative rock release with a big heart.
A full band sound opens the release. The melodic bass drives the single along, and the textured guitars add extra sparkle to the single. Tobin Rock’s emotive and enigmatic vocal performance sets the single alight. We adore his tone and passion that shines through.
We love the layered instrumental performances. They give an ebb and flow to the simply wonderful piece. In addition, the chorus is catchy and stays with the listener long after the music has ended. ‘Cruel’ is a masterclass in composition and arrangement and will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
Lyrically, ‘Cruel’ is hard-hitting and deeply relatable for many. It is an anti-bullying song, and it discusses the long-lasting effects of bullying. Rock connects with his audience and lets us feel less alone together.
Rock says, “As an artist, songwriter, musician, etc., you should write, speak, and create from whatever inspires you. As there is so much crazy going on in the world right now, I feel committed to attacking social issues and confronting what is really affecting or challenging us all.”
He continues, “It is so inspiring to come together and create music with top talent from around the world and embrace the potential of international collaboration.”
So make sure you add ‘Cruel’ to your weekday playlist. Tobin Rock is a dynamic and driven artist who is making music that needs to be paid attention to. We very much look forward to hearing what he will do next. Until then, ‘Cruel’ is available from the link below. Check it out!
