Singled Out: Scarlet
Haze's Reach Down
Feat. Bumblefoot from Guns N' Roses
Today Kat Perkins of
Scarlet Haze tells us about their brand new single "Reach Down"
which features Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal from
Guns N' Roses
on guitar. The
track comes from their forthcoming album "One Bad Bitch". Here is
Sex. That word alone
catches people's attention. For some, it makes their skin crawl. For
others, it makes them blush, or in the best case, gets them
instantly intrigued. What a perfect topic to write and sing about,
right? In all the above scenarios, the topic of sex sparks an
emotion. In "Reach Down" I am talking about safe sex, fantasy, and
my imagination. Males and females alike will connect with this song
even if they are too embarrassed to otherwise open up about this
topic with their friends!
The tempo and rhythm
of the lyrics to this song are fantastically exhausting and it gets
your heart pumping by the end!
My guest guitarist, Ron Thal of Guns N' Roses, shapes this
song with a sort of call and response with my voice and of course,
his solo takes the listener to a whole different kind of exciting
climax. Ron has a very special touch that musically completes this
song in so many ways.
All in all, I
love the way this song is intended to take you on a sexual journey,
and hopefully makes you feel that 'flying solo' some days or nights
is not a crime. It can also be extremely safe, fun, exciting, and
empowering! If I've learned anything about being an artist, it's
that the subject matter of a song can take it to a whole new level.
Add some rockin' melodies and a ripping guitar
solo, and you have yourself a damn cool tune to put out there.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the
song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album
