East L.A.'s The Pocket Rockets - New Single "The End" Feels Like Only The Beginning
The Pocket Rockets out of East L.A. just dropped their latest single "The End" off their upcoming album tentatively scheduled for a May /June release date. The song was produced and recorded by Jon Siebels and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys).
"The End" explodes from the very beginning with a heavy bass / drum groove as Ralph Blanco's vocals evoke a cool edge. The vocal performance and musical breaks feel like a kind of The Doors meets the Drums meets early Strokes and is that a punkified homage to "Black Magic Woman"???. The energy and dynamics of this track kill and beg for repeated listens. In the end, "The End" feels like only the beginning. I am so looking forward to hearing the new album.
The Pocket Rockets are:
Ralph Blanco - Bass Guitar & Vocals
Lyndon Miller - Guitar
Christepher Magallon - Drumset & Percussion
