Singled Out: Unconscious Disturbance's Let it Rain

Unconscious Disturbance

Brazilian/American rockers Unconscious Disturbance just released their new EP "Let It Rain" and to celebrate we asked them to tell us the story behind the title track. Here is the story:

"Let it Rain" is a special track for us, which is why it also became the title of our EP. We wrote the track during a time where we were trying to figure out a lot of things. We were new as a band, and were trying to find our style and our chemistry. We all quit our day jobs and basically said, "screw everything, let's just make music. We'll figure out the rest." As much as that was amazing and we were writing music 12 hours a day, it was also pretty stressful since New York is expensive and a lot is required of you all the time.

The mix of 12-hour rehearsal/writing lockdowns, mixed with a lot of partying and 4:30 PM winter sunsets got into our heads a little, I think. It was one of those moments where you stop and ask yourself, "what am I doing with my life? Am I going to legitimately lose it and go crazy?" But deep inside, we all knew we were doing what we wanted to be doing, and pursuing our dream. And that's a big part of what "Let it Rain" is about: even if things are crazy and seem out of place, stick to what you're doing if you know deep down that it's what you want to be doing. It's not always easy to pursue who you are and what you want, and it's never what you imagined it would be. But for people like us, it's just not an option. It's just what we do. When you look at it without judgment and expectation, it's all beautiful.

The track has a bit of a critical angle as well as a motivational one. The message "let it rain" is about letting things be as they are: when life is messing with you, it can be like getting caught in a rainstorm. It doesn't help to get mad at the sky. You just gotta roll with it, let it rain. The song critiques people who get caught up with judgment, fear, expectations, and is a shout out to those who learn to love and accept harshness and challenges at face value. It was probably around 7 A.M when we started writing the track. Honestly, it could've been 5 P.M. and we wouldn't have known the difference in our jam space with no windows. We had nothing else to do, and nothing else we'd rather be doing. It was an amazing time.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the EP right here!
