Dean and Ravo have spent the last few years perfecting their craft. What is their craft, you might ask? Well, pop music, I guess. Blending just about every major pop movement of the past couple years, the two vocalists have created an album that really is a trip, a trip through the good and bad of modern pop history. From the sweet acoustic crooning of Bruno Mars, to the downtempo hip hop beats and fuzzy synths that permeate today's 'rap pop,' the duo manages to touch on everything. This makes the album interesting in and of itself, more as a love child born from the last five years of popular music than an original treatise, but hey, there ain't nothing wrong with that.
Meeting at Boston College, the duo utilizes a mix of rap, vocal harmonies and pop music motifs to convey, you know, life's journey. Overall a pleasant and strangely uplifting album, Life's a Trip is a product of its times. For better or for worse (mostly better), this aspiring young duo is hitting the market hard and are certainly worth checking out. Their album, Life's a Trip, is in stores and itunes now, so check it out and hop on this bandwagon while it'll still make you cool.
