The duo formed by the Lynch brothers started in 2018 while they were on the band “R5”. Last November 15 they published their new single “Rumors”.
The Driver Era has reached amazing numbers, surpassing 450 million streams and 29 million followers on social networks. They have done global tours performing in places like Japan, Australia, South America and Europe.
This band is characterized by their music, with mixed styles. Their sound is a collage out of INXS, Bruce Springsteen and Prince, to producers like Pharrell and will.i.am. In other words, their genre would be a commercial pop-rock with touches of other styles.
This new single, “Rumors” talks about the people criticizing them for whatever they do. Ross commented before releasing the song: “Rumors, these rumors, no one really knows… The Internet doesn’t always have the facts. We wrote a song about it, and I hope you like it.”
On the music video Ross present himself as an actor where all he does on his life, even on his house, is commented by the audience. On other scenes, we can see him with his brother, Rocky, on the subway with some dancers.
Ross stands out with his jacket suits of cheerful colors but without anything under, showing off his muscles.
The music video continues with a party on a street. The brothers drink together and dance with lots of people while singing. Finally, the song finishes with a scene with Ross Lynch running through the dark, chased by flashes. This represents the stress created from the Paparazzi to the celebrities to catch some images of them.
The video has reached nearly 400,000 views on YouTube and appear to be the first single of their possible new album. They have already published 3 albums: “X” (2019), “Girlfriend” (2021) and “Summer Mixtape” (2022).
Ross has been working on his tour lately and has lots of closed concerts for the next year. He has also worked on the music video for “One of your girls” by Troye Sivan.
Furthermore, 2024 promises to be a very active year for Ross Lynch and The Driver Era, with more exciting releases on the horizon.
