There are often words between men and women that remain unspoken. These moments between the lines can lead to misunderstandings and conflict through which relationships are often eroded. The latest single from Farmingville, New York’s favorite party band the Rockin45s titled “Don’t Look At Me” challenges the notion that love conquers all. In fact, the band candidly provides a glimpse into the male psyche while exploring the feelings and emotions behind unrequited love.
Known for cranking up parties with their classic covers, the Rockin45s have gifted fans with a fresh, original piece that speaks volumes about the band’s extensive musical scope. While the band often performs up-beat, high-energy songs, “Don’t Look At Me” carries a more mellow tune for listeners to enjoy. The song conveys as a slow-tempo rock single but, it still emanates the vivacious spirit that the band has grown affectionately known for throughout the years. For music fans, the lyrical composition of the song will be a refreshing break away from the often frivolous, fluff of mainstream pop. The band succeeds in not only delivering an agreeable track but also provides a mindful observation of themes that hit closest to home; they do so in a clever manner.
Alongside the band’s thick, and saucy music accompaniment, tough rock vocals reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen’s style, yield a gritty expression of man’s inner-working to listeners. The hook “If it’s love, don’t look at me” makes a bold statement from the perspective of a person who may be loved but is not actually loving. The song is presented from a point of view that we, as socially constructed individuals are not often privy to. Encouraging men not to skirt around their feelings and challenging women to accept the reality that “he’s just not that into you” is an unabashed concept but painfully real. Certainly a band that thinks outside of the box, the Rockin45s possess a distinct quality and aptness for handling topics that many other artists elect not to. This is exciting news for music fans on the prowl for righteous, fun music, soul-stirring content, and nostalgic waltzes with irony and life’s subtleties.
