"With or without us, the world will keep turning."
Dublin-based singer-songwriter Kevin Casey has released his brand new single - rock anthem 'It's Alright'.
A long-standing regular in the Irish music scene, the rock artist has dropped several previous singles, two EPs, and one full length album since 2014.
He has two European tours and extensive gigging across the country under his belt, as well as performances in Germany, the UK and the USA.
Casey also showcased his raw vocal talent two years in a row at Electric Picnic.
The musician released double A-side 'The Show Goes On' in March of 2020, which features a significantly slower and more reflective side of his musical repertoire.
'It's Alright' turns expectations of the singer on their head, utilising chugging guitars, layered vocals and lyrics to capture the zeitgeist era of our time.
The song is sure to be a major summer soundtrack, with its steady rock beat, guitar solos and full instrumental arrangement.
Inspired by driving rock ballads of the '80s, the track was recorded with Kevin's band in Studio 7, Kildare and produced by Gavin McCormack.
The song touches on the problems raging across the world currently, such as racial injustice, economic collapse and the unavoidable pandemic, with the narrator searching for meaning among the chaos.
"Only the belief that it's going to be alright, feeling more believable at some times than others, is what we need to survive," a press statement on the track reads.
"With or without us, the world will keep turning. One way or another, for better or worse, the world will keep ticking on as it always has, even when it may feel like it’s ending."
