Alternative rock act “Scarlet View” just dropped their debut single and video “Never Comin’ Down” – an anthem about perseverance and determination.
“We brought in a good friend by the name of Scott Stephenson to feature as the main character of the accompanying music video. Scott is a true American hero, having toured with the US Army 3/509th Airborne Infantry Battalion and becoming injured in 2006. The song kicks off with the lyric “So low these vultures try to ground me…”. To us, the vultures represent a variety of negative influences that attempt to break each of us down when we are at our lowest. From physical pain to anxiety and spiraling depression, our hope is that each listener can connect with the sentiment of these ‘vultures’.”
Scarlet View is a 4 piece Octane Rock band from Kansas City, Missouri. In 2019, shortly after a disaster laden tour in their side band Stories Through Storms, Bryce Loewenstein (vocals) and STS former bassist Chris Kassein joined forces just in time for Scarlet View to play their first arena level show–and they have been living the movie and rolling with the punches ever since. During the shutdown in March of 2021, they made their national debut with an appearance in Hollywood, California on Sumerian Records’ hit show No Cover featuring legends Alice Cooper, Lzzy Hale, Gavin Rossdale, Bishop Briggs, and Tosin Abasi–where the Godfather of Shock Rock Alice Cooper reminded them off camera that despite the ups and downs that are indeed a part of the business (i.e., abducted bassists in New Orleans, a dozen dudes crammed in a van for weeks with no AC, or bassists who quit days before an arena level show), “This is Rock and Roll–never quit.” Luckily for fans, they haven’t.
