BlueNevada aren’t from Nevada. Nor are they blue. Out of Frederick, Maryland, the band, which comprises brothers Shannon and Dusty Corbin, along with Alex Hess (bass, vocals), Mike Dardaris (drums), Hannah Hess (vocals) and Autumn Jade Skitzy (vocals). Their single and video, ‘How Do You Feel’, taken from their ‘Moonlight Melon’ EP, is a psychedelic-rock call to arms.
A psychedelic call to arms, ‘How Do You Feel’ sees Dusty Corbin challenge listeners, both lyrically and vocally, and ask them to question their frantic daily routines. He wants us to return to a childlike mindset of fascination and acceptance. With soaring solos from Shannon mounting the emotional expression, and Alex Hess holding it all together with a driving bass groove, the track is confronting, yet contemplative.
The music video for ‘How Do You Feel’ is directed by Roosevelt Harris Jr., and we find Dusty and Shannon jamming, outside of Frederick. Underneath the open sky, they show that they’ve left the hectic lives portrayed in the song, and in so doing are able instead to take a breath and reflect on all the madness of modern society. This is interspersed with scenes of the band graffitiing a wall with the song title, prompting passersby to question their lives. So – how about it? ‘How Do You Feel’ today?
