Review: Far East Movement Ft. Ryan Tedder – Rocketeer (Single)

Will Rocketeer be ‘Like A G6’ or ‘Like A G-String’? We find out……

Artist: Far East Movement
Release: Rocketeer (Single)

Far East Movements new single ‘Rocketeer’ was certainly not what i was expecting, but let me assure you that’s a good thing. From the band who brought us ‘Like A G6’ which I personally was not a big fan of, I was expecting their next release to be some what similar. To my surprise it was the exact opposite. They really managed to pull together a unique and interesting track with ‘Rocketeer’ with a melodic beat and bursting with good energy. After listening to it just once I knew i was going to be hitting repeat non stop.

Featuring One Republic Vocalist, Ryan Tedder, Ryan opens the track almost acapella with just a simple piano backing which draws you straight into the track. The song breaks into a more electro/R&B beat and the track takes a more Bruno Mars/B.O.B feel compared to the more dance orientated ‘Like A G6’. Far East Movement vocal style fits the track perfectly and Ryan Tedder’s vocals are so raw yet polished its impossible to not want to listen to more.

The music video for the track was also great and had such a sweet storyline. It tells the story of a young couple who want to spend time together but can’t as the girls job needs her to goto Tokyo. Her boyfriend cruises around on his skateboard picking up all types of different objects in order to create a rocket style backpack so he can ‘Rocketeer’ to where she is and be with her. Obviously in the real world that doesn’t work but the concept is beautiful and brought a smile to my face.

If you haven’t heard ‘Rocketeer’ I highly advise giving it a listen and it will remain on my playlist for a while yet.
