Måneskin delivers on ‘RUSH!’ Måneskin delivers sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll on ‘RUSH!’

In the age of the sweetest music from a few artists who seem to live permanently in the Billboard Hot 100 (I love you, Taylor Swift, but I’m watching you), the United States is missing music and a little. more angst and black eyeliner behind it.

The Italian rock group Måneskin has been lucky enough to be famous enough to avoid falling through the cracks as many listeners try to answer the eternal question: What is rock ‘n’ roll?

Indeed, the appearance of the group is a reflection of the rock. There’s a certain sexiness to the band’s foursome that evokes rock ‘n’ roll in its simplest, artistic form. Each member’s appearance begs the question: Do all rock stars always need to look cool and dirty? Måneskin frontman Damiano David recently buzzed the head apparently yes.

World famous after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy in 2021 with his song “Zitti e buoni,” Måneskin will soon be recognized as the new savior of rock ‘n’ roll – a genre that seems to be moving forward. But, if the latest album from the band is anything to go by, rock ‘n’ roll still has a way to go before it dies, the rock stars have been crying out for for years.

Released on January 20, “RUSH!” is the third studio album and his most ambitious work, which contains 17 songs – only three of which are in the Italian category. If the album’s title is any indication, “RUSH!” it’s a fast-paced whirlwind of rock tropes and stadium-ready headbangers that make the bedroom sing, even if they don’t offer much in the way of reinventing rock music.

When “RUSH!” it may not be an underground album in terms of musical initiation, but a force in terms of harmony and storytelling. Throughout the album, David sings about the rock star world, filled with ʼ90’s supermodels, stolen Basquiats and old lovers. In the background, the other three members of the band ― bassist Victoria De Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi and drummer Ethan Torchio ― contribute equally to the story on their instruments.

In addition to the appeal of the raspy gangsters in the album’s plot, it seems that Måneskin knows how his latest album subverts the familiar aspects of rock. In the song often referred to as “KOOL KIDS,” the band expresses their thoughts on their place in the world of rock ‘n’ roll: “Honestly, I don’t give a f–k.” Likewise, “BLA BLA BLA” is another standout track on the album – David can’t be bothered to speak the song, let alone sing it, and anyone who has a problem can kiss his “bu-bu-bu-bu” goodbye. -bu-bu-butt.”

“SUPERMODEL” shows what this song says the world can do with other rock stars. His words are a throwback to the ole days of rock (whatever that is) when high-quality analogies were common and “accessible” to rock artists.

Another example of the album’s ability to mix the past and the present is the song “MISESE”. Featuring Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, the album’s second single is pop-y enough for Gen Z and informative enough for those old enough to be one of Morello’s classics during his time with the band. Morello’s well-known guitar mixing skills are hard to miss on the track and fit perfectly with Måneskin’s already four-piece band.

If “RUSH!” by all accounts, rock ‘n’ roll today is not dead – on the contrary. The album works well because it remembers its origins but doesn’t worship too much. Måneskin has been nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammys. If successful, it could further fuel the resurgence of rock ‘n’ roll around the world. And if they don’t? That’s the kind of rebellious thing a rock band would do.
