Try not to chase your heartbeats as The Riot Melody drops ‘Blood Fountain’!
The Riot Melody
Here’s what we know about the band so far: one, they play alternative rock and post-hardcore, and two, the band has 5 members. Those 5 are Gabriel Grimaldo, Tristan Iraula, Kyle Guce, Elijah Niccolli Zamora, and Kenji Valdez.
‘Blood Fountain’ is the first single they released off of their new EP ‘Stars and Scars’. If we’re gonna be honest, the name “stars and scars” presents a nice polarity between the two words, one being shiny and heavenly, and one being a painful remnant of past wounds. Is my interpretation too emo? I think not.
In the same way, who wouldn’t be intrigued by a song titled ‘Blood Fountain’? It would make you uncomfortable if you actually imagine a fountain but instead of water it spits out blood. The song can be interpreted in various ways, but no, the gore isn’t one of them. The song is actually about an escape, seemingly urging the listeners to run away from a chaotic town.
Chasing heartbeats, tracing scarsBaby, it’s over now, we can escape this townLet’s burn these bridges down
