Hailing from the vibrant music scene of New York, Autorub serves up a striking blend of contemporary and timeless rock. Their music is a tapestry of smart, sardonic political commentary woven into infectious beats. It’s a polished yet rebellious sound that strikes a balance between commercial appeal and gritty authenticity. The mini concept EP, “Women of the Right,” dropped on July 21st, 2023, and it’s a testament to the band’s knack for crafting something substantial, both musically and lyrically.
Led by the multi-talented Michael Corn, a former member of notable bands like ‘Sammy’ and ‘Heydevils,’ Autorub is a force to be reckoned with. Corn, whose musical journey includes composing for popular TV shows like “Pawn Stars,” “Wahlburgers,” and “Duck Dynasty,” brings a wealth of experience to the table. The EP is a whirlwind ride, leaving listeners yearning for more. It takes a pointed aim at election denier Kari Lake, who, interestingly enough, has blocked Autorub on Twitter. The band also delves into America’s complex relationship with guns, particularly among certain women.
Sonically, Autorub’s music is a fusion of hard-hitting modern and classic rock, characterized by irresistible melodies and relentless grooves. Their influences span across decades, encompassing legends like The Stones, The Who, The Police, The Cars, Jimi Hendrix, and Black Sabbath, seamlessly blended with contemporary giants like Weezer, Foo-Fighters, and Green Day. “Women of the Right” encapsulates Autorub’s signature style, boasting clever songwriting, impeccable production, and stellar performances. In just six minutes, the EP takes the listener on a captivating adventure through sound and story, leaving a lasting impression that beckons for repeated listens. With a well-deserved spot in rotation on indie, internet, and college radio stations, Autorub’s music is poised to make waves, and with support from the right channels, there’s no limit to their potential.
