Rooga - Take Me Away * Single of the day * release date 29/4/2011

By some bizarre co-incidence Rooga is the second band from Austria and specifically Vienna to be single of the day this week, the first being Room Island. However, musically they are worlds apart.

Take Me Away is a modern rock track with that interaction between drums and guitar in the verses that it's difficult to count time to, which is a really neat trick to put that general sense of unease into the listener.

Of course the pay off is the tension building bridge and rocking resolving chorus. The vocals ranging from coolly authoritative through to pleading, with the occasional use of floatiness thrown in, bring the whole track together to good effect.

  1. Awesome tune! I really dig the way the heavy guitars enter in the chorus and the middle part (bridge?) always makes me shiver!
