For The Driver Era, music can’t – and shouldn’t – be forced. The band, formed by brothers Ross and Rocky Lynch in 2018 while on tour with their former group R5, aims to embrace the present moment, creating songs that reflect each experience and feeling as it comes. It’s a philosophy that pervades all of the duo’s releases, from their debut single “Preacher Man” to their 2019 album X to their latest effort, Girlfriend. The music showcases a variety of influences, like INXS, Bruce Springsteen and Prince, and the album features a diverse array of styles, notably pulling on the musicians’ love of hip-hop producers like Pharrell and will.i.am. It’s an album connected by its creators, rather than an overall theme, and it contains only a handful of the massive amount of songs the pair has written recently.
The Driver Era have announced their third album, Summer Mixtape, out everywhere on September 16th! Featuring 11 brand new tracks - including dance track Keep Moving Forward" (feat. Nikka Costa) and the nostalgic summer single "Malibu," Summer Mixtape is currently available for pre-order on limited edition white vinyl, cassette, and CD formats.
