The Driver Era’s Ross Lynch stars as Harvey in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and it was this commitment that allowed his brother and bandmate, Rocky Lynch, to step into the spotlight for the band’s latest release, Places.
Rocky wrote, recorded and produced the band’s latest single Places while Ross was in Vancouver filming Sabrina. Rocky then starred in and directed the video with assistance from his brother Ryland. Yes, there’s a lot of talent in the Lynch family, and they’re used to working together; Ryland managed R5, Ross and Rocky’s previous pop-rock band with two other siblings, and toured with them as a DJ.
The latest single demonstrates the wisdom of Ross and Rocky’s decision to explore more innovative and experimental sounds as The Driver Era.
Cousin Gordy De St Jeor filmed the video for Places and Rocky’s girlfriend, actress Alex Hopkins, co-starred. Keeping it in the family clearly worked as the cinematic video is intriguing and compelling, enhancing the alt sound with trippy imagery.
Places comes hot on the heels of the duo’s chilled summery jam, Take Me Away, with another video helmed by their brother Ryland and cousin Gordy.
The band got a boost in the UK when their retro banger, A Kiss, was picked up by BBC Radio 1 DJs Annie Mack, Mollie & Matt, and Jack Saunders. The song has been streamed over 11 million times!
UK fans will get their chance to hear these songs live if The Driver Era’s November 2020 tour stays on schedule. Keep an eye on the band’s website for the latest news.
