Rise Rock n’ Shine: Corey Harper + Culture Wars

The early bird gets the best tunes,

it’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: It’s scary to drop out of college and move to California in pursuit of becoming a singer songwriterr—lucky for us, Corey Harper did it anyways.

What: “Dried Blood”, a soft pop song that’s easy to get lost in.

Why: Take a deep breath and let yourself be. Just for a minute. “Dried Blood” is here to give you a break from life’s daily chaos.

“I wrote this song on the piano first before I added anything else. It came from a place where I felt like I didn’t have anything to say because I was too afraid to admit it to myself and make everything real. The song resembles the rise and fall of when we listen to our own head, and how sometimes we can be torn between what we think we want and what we actually need. Only being able to see beauty if you understand the pain that comes before. This is dried blood.” – Corey Harper

Who: Culture Wars is hitting all of the biggest playlists this year but we can’t say we’re surprised. The Austin, TX trio has something that most artists just can’t pin down and we’re so ready to hear more.

What: Funky indie beats galore on their latest, “Let Me Down”.

Why: “Let Me Down” has an easy melody that begs to be danced to but it also holds a dark edge that sets it apart from the other songs you’re spinning right now.

Hey idobi music fans – this song was created in now-typical Culture Wars style, post-vodka and pickle shots at 2am at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX. We write the heart of every song using a couple synthesizers just to get chords and melody. We’re creating most of this on our laptops and then go back and track anything we need. Luckily, Sonic is jam packed with tons of vintage synths, guitars, and amps. Special thanks to Tony, Jerry, and Mario at the ranch. – Culture Wars
