Review by: Justyn Brodsky
The folks at Goodieboyz have quite a concept. What started as a virtual band eventually manifested into a full-blown indie platform that showcases talent from the creators/originators, as well as feature artists from all over the world that wanna get involved. From musicianship, production, film making and everything under the sun, Goodieboyz have had the opportunity to put together some powerful content with a strong message. Their music video and single “Rise With Me” is one of those musical and visual demonstrations their platform is known for.
This politically supercharged track is heavily anthemic, atmospheric, and touches on concepts that are far too real. The video’s documentary style resonates with the flow of the Hip Hop verses and really parallels the lyrical concepts. Inspired by the band Gorillaz in their beginnings, Goodieboyz touches on a multifaceted multi-genre sound that has elements of rock, soul, rap and many iconic music eras all wrapped up into a modernized track with top-notch production value.
The best part about this song is the realism and outlook – the issues our country suffers from and the encouragement to find a way to make changes for the better by rising up as a whole. It’s a message we have heard in songs before, but never quite like this. The powerful guitar progressions and driving rhythms really helps propel this message forward, all the while providing a visual context behind the message in the video that really grabs at your attention and makes you think about the world we live in today, and how we can change it for the better.
“Rise With Me” is just as powerful in visual content as it is musically, and that’s what makes this single the gem it really is. You’ll be passing this video around to everyone you know after watching it – and you’ll definitely be keeping tabs on what Goodieboyz has up their sleeves in the near future.
