Daily Spinn: Jesse Roper Sees a Need for Change ‘Right Now’
Without a doubt, the world has been watching the division within the United States throughout 2020. That includes our neighbors to the north, like Canadian rocker Jesse Roper.
The first single from his forthcoming album, Horizons, “Right Now” is a dynamic protest song; one which serves as a “social commentary about the division between the masses currently facing our world.” The British Columbia native writes from an observant place — one which takes in all of the unrest in the headlines, and concludes that “things don’t seem united down south.
Produced by Gus Van Go and Werner F (Arkells, Hollerado, The Trews), “Right Now” features minimalist verses that give Roper space to discern the constant “right versus left, rich versus poor” battles that plague the news cycle. The chorus then drops in with crushing guitars, robust vocals, and thunderous percussion, boiling over like the tension we’ve experienced during this pivotal year.
See if Roper’s observations ring true for you, and take in “Right Now” as today’s Daily Spinn!
