Fresh off the release of their fiery new single “The Empress Of Lies,” The Reasons Why deliver a hard rock revelry masterclass.
Hailing from Melbourne, The Reasons Why shares their ultimate playlist, a sonic journey through grunge, alt-rock, and stoner vibes.
“Would?” by Alice in Chains exemplifies ’90s mastery, Layne’s vocals cutting through with Jerry’s songwriting finesse. “Aneurysm” by Nirvana exudes grunge perfection—raw, catchy, and unapologetically noisy.
Staind’s “For You” commands attention with its gripping riff. John Lennon’s “Watching The Wheels” resonates with its empowering message.
From Orange Goblin to PJ Harvey, the playlist is a diverse tribute to influential sounds, culminating in the soul-stirring magic of Pearl Jam’s “Black.” Eddie Vedder’s voice casts a haunting spell, making it an everlasting favourite.
