Dublin-based singer/songwriter Kevin Casey has just released his new single ‘Shout it Out’ today February 26th. A long-standing regular in the Irish music scene, Kevin Casey has released several singles, two EPs, and a full-length album since 2014. He has done two European tours and gigged extensively across the country as well as shows in Germany, the U.K., and the USA, including two consecutive years at Electric Picnic.
This upbeat, foot-thumper has a lot of deep meaning behind it, as well as some wonderful musical nuances.
The track bursts out of the gate with screaming electric guitar feedback, introducing us to the main guitar riff, but beyond the music, there is a deeper message hidden in this song. This is a very important piece with regards to what the artist wants to portray to the audience. It tackles very difficult themes that have arisen over the last few months and beyond. The song deals with the many problems of inequality. The piece encourages the listener to use their voice against such inequalities.
The lyrics can resonate so much with those who have experienced inequality, but also all of the listeners who observe it and demand change. Hearing the words, “Stand up, stand proud, come on and shout it out,” can only remind the listener of the great Ruth Bader Ginsberg, champion of equality, who once said, “Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes.”
‘Shout It Out’ is a 90’s Brit-Pop stomp oozing of raw rock energy and Kevin Casey’s infectious and powerful musicianship
‘Shout It Out’ is a powerful message by Kevin Casey, wrapped up in a package of wonderful music.
