Up-and-coming alt-rock band The Keystones debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Cut to the Chase‘ Wednesday. The video features the band in a stylized setting complete with monitors, dim lighting, and flashing lights.

The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single presents a stylistic approach and sound that echoes the alt-rock sounds of the 90s and even adds in a touch of modern, active rock bands. the song’s bass and drums really take center stage in this heavy composition while the guitar line in this case takes more of a supporting role. To a certain level, the composition lends itself to comparisons to works from Muse and Stone Temple Pilots in its more glam type works.

Front man Rayven Burdette talked about the song’s creation during a recent interview.

“Funny enough, the song just came to me while I was in the kitchen cooking,” he said. “I heard the riff with the drums in my head so I quickly programmed the notes into GarageBand on my phone – a huge lifesaver for all the riffs and ideas that pop up out of nowhere! I took the chorus instrumental from another song I was writing and as a band, we fleshed out the lyrics and melodies. This was the first time I was a part of a team of musicians with a goal in mind. This was the first time I was being encouraged to do what I love most. This was the first time I felt accepted. It feels so nice to finally be the singer of a band that I’ve genuinely looked up to for years. It feels even better that we all have such organic chemistry and a drive to reach people with our music.”

The lyrical content that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement comes across as an introspective statement from the song’s subject that touches on that subject’s thoughts on a variety of topics.
