After months of teasing fans, Heffron Drive officially shared their latest single “Mad at the World” on Friday, January 19, 2018.
The band appears to have moved away from their original electronic EDM sound, and have gotten heavy into guitars and drums, giving their music a more rock/alternative sound. This is evident just twelve seconds into the song when you hear the beat of drums take over. From there, it’s all high energy. This song is no ballad!
Dustin’s guitar solo is seamless. Each new song showcases his skills and blows us away with his brilliance, while Kendall shocked a lot of fans with a scream worthy of any Taking Back Sunday song. It’s clear they are really feeling this new sound they’re producing and we dig it.
The boys have harnessed their lyrical storytelling and kept it simple. It`s not about finding love or surviving a break-up. It’s purely what the title says: being mad at the world. We have all experienced this at one point or another, even more so with the current state of events. The lyrics tell a tale of one person’s struggle to try and deal with situations that may bring you down in day to day life. Questioning if there is something better out there, if anyone even cares, and how sometimes you just want to move away and start over.
