LOCKET SHARE NEW SINGLE “REARVIEW MEMORY” — LISTEN
Canadian alt rock band Locket have shared a third new single with “Rearview Memory.” Watch the visualizer and listen to the song here.
“Rearview Memory” wears its late ’90s and early ’00s influences on its sleeve! The mid-tempo song will remind you of all your favorite emo and Warped Tour bands of yore, all the while remaining distinctly modern and moving the alt rock genre forward. Gritty guitars and a feedback-laden outro give the song, which examines how the past can help you navigate your future, its edge.
“‘Rearview Memory’ is our take on a ‘throwback’ sort of vibe,” says singer Brad Garcia. “We leaned heavily into our influences from the ’90s and early 2000s, and infused it with the sort of songwriting and modern production that feels very ‘Locket.’ It’s a song about reflecting on your past and using those memories — or that view— to help navigate your future. Learning from all the mistakes and failures and successes we’d all stumbled through as young-adults.”
Locket, whose core members (Garcia, guitarist Cory Bergeron and bassist Travis Morrison) have achieved more than they ever could have dreamed of when they started out 10 years ago in a band under a different name. Once reforming as Locket, they released the album All Outin late 2019. The record earned positive press from publications including Billboard, The Alternative, and New Noise, and the single “Hunnie” has racked up more than 1.3 million Spotify streams.
