Singaporean metalcore band Reserate has released a new single ‘Gravity’.
“Hot off of being selected to play for Baybeats 2022, the budding band releases their new single “Gravity”. This up-tempo metalcore song sees the band exploring a more electronic future rave writing style. The lyrics explore the themes of feeling numb and empty with a desperate plea of wanting to feel again after being emotionally beaten and broken.
“Moving forward with our music, we’re trying to do something different to make ourselves unique in the “metalcore” world.” says Kevyn, the guitarist of Reserate, “Most of us in the band usually listen to music genres outside of metal and for a while we’ve been thinking of blending elements from the stuff we listen to into our sound. Cynic was just a little taste of what’s to come, the next few releases are going to be really crazy.”
Reserate attacks the Singapore music scene with its high-energy, meticulously crafted over-the-top compositions. Inspired by music from all over the spectrum, their sound can be described as a coalescence of heavy hard-hitting riffs with modern synthesized elements and futuristic cinematic sound design.
The band’s mantra of “never writing the same song twice” can be heard via the evolution of their sound through each release. From the inception of their unique metalcore sound in their four-track debut EP “Infinite Entity” to a remixed version of it titled “Augmented Entity”.
Reserate found themself at a new turning point with their single “Cynic” in collaboration with rapper JJDROY which ended up being featured in Spotify’s Beats and Rhymes playlist. Following up on that release, the band released a cover of “Run It” by DJ Snake from Marvel’s Shang Chi Soundtrack.
Following that, “Playground”, was a collaboration with Twitch Streamer and Vocalist of Ultra Mega Cat Attack, Debbi Koh. The song is a cover of Bea Miller’s track from the Netflix Series, Arcane, which sees the band head toward a futuristic cyberpunk sound along with a visually captivating music video set entirely in a virtual environment that was self-produced by the band.
Reserate is also known to bring an unforgettable live show which can be described as a “Metal rave set in the future”. Their shows blend stunning visuals and rearranged versions of their tracks infusing electronic remixes, seamless transitions, and intricate sound design. Notable shows include one of Singapore’s largest Rock and Metal Festival, Rock Central in 2019.
The band is set to perform at Baybeats, Singapore’s Largest Alternative Music Festival on 29th October 2022.
