Razor Nights – IDGAF Review
Written by Kevin Tanza on October 2, 2020
Razor Nights is a band that many of you might not be familiar with, but you definitely should. Combining many different influences of old school Rock ‘n’ Roll, Razor Nights is the brainchild of the guitarist and vocalist Diana Death, who we had the pleasure of interviewing in MusikHolics, and vocalist Moonrunner Gomez, with both being very experienced in the music business and finding in this band a place to express the biggest representation of their musical ideologies.
This is pretty clear with the band’s latest single, IDGAF. Just released a few weeks ago, this single is the group’s statement against censorship and against those that want to silence people with an opposing point of view. Lyrically, it makes a lot of sense, not only because of its clear message–Razor Nights is all about Rock ‘n’ Roll and there’s nothing more Rock ‘n’ Roll than freedom.
The song itself is solid with a very straightforward approach. Diana is a Punk fan at heart and you can hear that influence throughout the song–it’s raw, straight to the point and done in a way that gets the listener’s attention from the very get-go. This is something that I have found very appealing about Razor Nights: they know how to keep it straight and go for the jugular with every single song they make.
One of my favorite aspects of IDGAF (and the band as a whole) is the vocal harmonies between Moonrunner and Diana. There is a certain synergy between those two that is fairly obvious when you have played and sang with someone for a long time, but there is a natural element to that and I think this duo has it, often knowing how to complement each other. Add to that Diana’s solid and heavy guitar work and you have a very special song.
Razor Nights is a very special band and one whose message I think is very important in this day and age. We’re so obsessed with fighting and trying to silence those that think with a different way than ourselves that we seem to have lost the notion that everybody can have different points of view and I love how this song is unapologetic about it.
I think we need more of this type of Rock ‘n’ Roll in our days and Razor Nights definitely is up for the challenge.
