RAUSHI (sounds like “RUSH-HIGH)” front woman, Dani Raushi, is living, breathing, singing proof that when fueled by the formidable flame of focused passion and an unforfeiting work ethic, a dream seed spark can and will erupt into a tangible reality.
Finishing their 11 song album with the help of Producer/ mixer, Jay Baumgardner, at NRG in North Hollywood, Dani's killer vocals are supported by the instrumental stylings of guitarist Robert King Geiser, drummer Matt Conley and bassist(s) Doug Ardito and Jay Gordon (also a producer) who recorded on the album.
For RAUSHI, music is a poetic tool with the capacity to take the negative energies that often surround life's mentally and emotionally challenging situations, which in the case of the new album involve inescapable desire and overwhelming betrayal, and transform them into positive release. With a lyrical flow comparable to a stream of clever puns, the album unapologetically exposes the raw emotions one experiences when placed in the volatile frameworks of consuming love as a result of human nature. In songs like Over the Edge, Don't Call Me and High Tides Collide, the use of drum-delays and short, speedy guitar strums build a reservoir of anticipatory energy which lead up to their subsequent breakdowns in a way that intensifies the effect of Raushi's emotionally driven vocals.
Formerly of April Sixth & Die Trying, Geiser and Conley's hard rock influences mix effortlessly with the sexy and soulful female rocker vibe that Dani brings to the table. The combination of Matt's hard hitting and rhythmic beats, along with Robert's speedy guitar strums, symphonic layers and innovative ideas help to create the perfect package.
The average listener will have no problem grasping the surface messages of each song on an individual level. Using choruses that are snappy and to the point like a quick punch in the face, the group interlaces their form of therapeutic poetry in a way that is catchy, fun and easily relatable.However, with respect to the composition as a whole, it will take a more fine tuned listener to decipher the true complexity of the reality that is building slowly under the radar as the album progresses. But then again, isn't the process of extracting hidden meaning, and experiencing the succession of new information as it's layering, partially responsible for the fulfillment one derives from enveloping themselves in an album over and over again?
With their 'Take no shit' attitude and songs that say 'F*ck You' to being mistreated, fooled, taken for granted or all of the above just because you love someone, RAUSHI is a testament to the power of one's will.
