So, it took me a moment (a day) to let this one really sink in. I was having a tough time trying to figure out whether the new single ‘We Are Alive’ was a short promotion for a new website or a new single released by my friend Dani Rosenoer (Keyboardist/Vocalist, Three Days Grace). All I know is, I wanted to hear more! I only caught a glimpse of it in the video first promoted on The Golden Reef’s Facebook page yesterday so hearing the song in its entirety today was like a warm: ‘Welcome! Summer is coming!’ And that’s just what this collaborative effort is: Summer Sounds, or as The Golden Reef’s page suggests: Music beyond the Golden Reef and a 'Tropical Masterpiece'. (see below)

Rosenoer leads the vocals in this magical number alongside Producer Sam Cross of Peru, and French Musician AL’sic. Since Rosenoers’ release of his album ‘Monkey Prison’ earlier this year, I have been a huge fan of his sound – enough so, that we launched an article about him in our December 2015 Magazine (click here to read). So, it wasn’t a huge surprise that this new single was a light-inducing ode to the mighty sun and surf scene in the wake of his single ‘Place In The Sun’ from Monkey Prison. (Seriously, I’m ordering my surfboard now!)
The collaborative team along with Engineer Mat Keselman (who missed the track) provide instrumentation that is exultant and upbeat like a pleasant walk on the beach or even a video playback of an epic World Surf League clip. The fact that there are literally three ethnic backgrounds and styles of music here combined makes is a truly brilliant piece. Have a listen to it here (see below) on SoundCloud and see what we mean!
Well done Gentlemen!
