Vandelux’s “Renegade” is a bass kickin’, gravel spittin’ kind of track.
In his fourth original release, Canadian multi-instrumentalist Vandelux embodied the very style of a renegade. He went off the beaten path experimented with a solo closet composition, laying multiple instruments on top of each other. With gritty guitar licks and bass kicks, “Renegade” is the audial embodiment of cruising down a dusty road on a motorcycle. Its high energy rocker feel steers away from monotony, as the tune takes a quick turn about halfway through.
Despite its rugged sound, “Renegade” does not sound like an at-home production. However, the DIY production process feels perfect for the essence of the song, as it embodies the notion of exploring the unknown, whatever the outcome.
In the artist’s own words, the track is “somewhat of an ode to the trials and tribulations of taking off and trying something new…yet continually being haunted by the past.”
Vandelux’s latest release is an exciting peek into what other experiments he will come up in the future. After listening to this track, we’re looking forward to hearing what else is in store.
