Gramercy, New York City, NY (December 08, 2015) - S.C.R.D. (Sweet Chuck Ravin Dave) officially release their third studio single, titled “Phone Sext” on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and over 20+ digital, global retailers and in CD format via Amazon. Phone Sext is the musical, storytelling duo’s third record release on indie record label Trip Digital Inc., and includes three versions (Explicit, Radio, Instrumental).
S.C.R.D. explains that “Phone Sext” is the third chapter of the story following heartbreak in L.A. and dating in New York City, and that it’s “about the tension that we all feel between in our progressive digital world, that stretches between fantasy and ideal and bridges into our reality. In the end, nothing beats the real thing. And this is a truth that stretches deep into the groove and vibe of the whole record, on which we feature an all-star cast of amazing, local, New York City based musicians.”
Most notably is the very talented, tall, dark and handsome (4+ octave) UK singer and songwriter, Mr Wright. While visiting New York City back in May, Jason Anthoney Wright was introduced to S.C.R.D. while the duo was in the middle of recording their first single record, “Someday.” After a quick meeting, an intense listening session, smiles and handshakes, the trio reconvened a day later and fleshed out the concept, composition and then recorded the chorus and instrumental.
S.C.R.D. enlisted the multi-talented Jazz and Soul musician, Benny Harrison to deliver a daft and moving piano performance as well as support on the background vocals and then persuaded the most talented American Jazz Bassist, James Genus, whose performance nailed the bass line giving this record it’s groove. No stopping there! The sexual sensuality of Marissa Licata’s violin dramatically dances delicately back and forth between the vocal melodies of Mr. Wright and the intentions of Sweet Chuck, playing the female antagonist’s voice.
The orchestration of the instrumental is the perfect contrast to the functional and blunt lyrical verses led by Sweet Chuck and backed by Dj Journey. This instructional guide takes us on a sexy journey through fantasy up to a surprise twist at the end.
The combination of both the instrumentation and lyrical versing makes this record highly visual and easily understood by a wide range audience, but most specifically 16-24 millennials. S.C.R.D. plans to target college markets via radio and blogs as well as key Spring Break markets via DJ spins at nightclubs and events.
