Like the band name, the music of The Driver Era captures a certain classic feeling while looking toward tomorrow. With the two brothers, Ross and Rocky Lynch, writing, performing, and producing all of the tracks, their stylistically unpredictable music also conjures up every romantic association with heading out on the open road: limitless possibility, the thrill of escape, a refusal to stay in one place for any real length of time.
With massive hooks and immaculate production, songs like "Feel You Now" and "Low" show the tight musicianship that Ross and Rocky have honed over the years in their longtime band R5-a five-piece whose self-produced 2017 EP New Addictions was praised as "full of sharply constructed pop confections" by Rolling Stone. It was during that band's recent worldwide tour, the two began dreaming up a new project that would allow them to explore their more experimental tendencies.
"We had a bunch of songs we'd been gathering for a while," says Rocky. Although they avoided restricting their vision to any specific sound or style, the duo did set some firm intentions for the new band: to create music without self-imposed limitations, and to always push for sonic innovation.
In between polishing off the new songs-and hitting the road for their first tour as The Driver Era, Ross is a critically acclaimed actor (he recently drew raves for his title role in the serial-killer biopic My Friend Dahmer and currently stars in Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). And when they're not actively creating, the two are often out riding around, listening back to mixes and working out song ideas, constantly expanding what's possible in The Driver Era.
"A while ago I was reading a book that talked about how if you and a person are able to connect deeply enough, you almost form a third consciousness," says Ross. "I think Rocky and I have that on some level. I don't think either of us has felt so creatively charged up in a long time, and it's just a really cool feeling. The whole thing's opened up our minds in this amazing way. "The band released their debut album X in June of this year, and just put out two new tracks, “A Kiss” and “Forever Always”.
