Love will have you racing down the highway, or wanting to crash your car into the sun. New Jersey alternative singer-songwriter and producer Rogue Soul's new single "Used Cars" channels all of that and more. Now a senior at Rutgers University, Rogue reflects on the one spark of light in a life that seems to just be racing by in the song, letting the emotions brood and build throughout before letting it all loose in an explosive finale. Borrowing from the emotional distraught of Radiohead and Arctic Monkeys and the cynical honesty of Phoebe Bridgers, “Used Cars” is the perfect soundtrack to a long sunset drive on the highway, with a destination or without. Stream the song here on Spotify.

Produced and shot by Rogue Soul’s Rutgers peer Gerard Chua of Decadenti Productions, the music video pays homage to their university in aesthetic time-lapse shots driving through the city. Brandishing neon lyrics and an old film feel, the music video for “Used Cars” follows the endless drive toward something you love. The video is the second collaboration between the artist and producer, with many plans for future endeavors as well. The official music video for “Used Cars” is available here.

Rogue Soul is busy at work on his debut album Defense Mechanisms,”Used Cars” being the record’s fifth single, following the Deftones-inspired “Floodplains,” 80’s indie pop anthem “Wears Me Out” (nominated for Song Of The Year at the New York-independent award show, the Wavy Awards), EDM festival rocker “Rainkissed,” and the acoustic dream rocker “Sail To The Moon.” With extensive plans for social media, radio, and other media in promotion for “Used Cars,” Rogue Soul continues to ride a wave of growth, expanding his visual department and other media. A website and his first merchandise drop are also in the works!

Used Cars” is available to stream on all major platforms, and available for purchase on Bandcamp or iTunes. If you liked this track, be on the look out for a new single in collaboration with former roommate Glaciers and a new single in the winter!
