Incredibly green and young in their development, upstate New yorkers, Reckless Serenade pop with youthful exuberance. Their blend of Pop/Punk sensibilities isn’t genre bending, and certainly plays to what fans expect of the sound. However, with some polished edges, the group has great potential. After all, they’ve only been together for two years. Give these young lads a listen and see what you think.
[Official Bio] Hailing from the Upstate NY town of Mahopac, the pop/punk indie band Reckless Serenade are all friends from high school, each with unique tastes in music, bringing their different styles to the writing process resulting in upbeat and angst-ridden songs spanning many genres.
Pulling their name from the Arctic Monkey’s song of the same name, the 5 piece formed in 2012. The players, Cory Brent- Vocals, Mark Neidhardt- Guitar, Steve Zeiss- Bass, Will Prinzi- Guitar, Matt Ruggiero- Drums all met at school, and found their musical identities matched their ambitions, and they instantly connected. Since then, they’ve made enormous strides in becoming more than just a local band.
Their first 6 song EP was picked up by Fervor Records and has been featured on Fox Sports during the Dallas Stars hockey games. They most recently released their debut full length album ‘Chasing Lights’, with each song on the album sounding distinctive, allowing Reckless Serenade’s dynamic and versatile sound inspire their audiences at shows across the northeast.
The latest video ‘Missile’ is just out and showcases the band’s diversity; a song lamenting pain & loss but highlighting their intelligent arranging and playing skills as well as powerful vocals.
‘Hear Me Out’ blogger Luke Helker says: “Chasing Lights is an album full of anthems from start to finish and never has a dull moment. This is good, aggressive, edgy pop-punk music for the pop-punk fan looking for something fresh and exciting.
