Reliably informed

Echoing back to the post-industrial urban landscape of the Toon, Newcastle’s Sons of Millionaires’ new single Revelation reverberates with a desire to escape the soul-crushing existence of everyday life.

Taken from their debut self-titled album, the single does an excellent job of submerging the listener into a thick musical heath which suffocates, drowns and truly evokes the push needed to escape city life. Layered heavy synths act as swirling concrete walls while pounding drums intersect; mimicking the unbearable noise of bustle. Booming vocals rain down with authoritarianism – surrounding and consuming.

And yet, there’s a sense of urgency. Something has to change. Playful synth melodies bring hope, comfort and the revelation that the first step is knowing you want to escape.
