Today we’re proud to bring you the video premiere for “Take Me Away”, by SoCal-based all rock artist, Ratinoff. The alternative pop dance groove is the second single from his upcoming album, which is titled, ‘ Let it Out.” Along with the video, the song is also releasing today, and you can stream it at the link right here.
Ratinoff has been experimenting with various styles of alt-rock retro genres. ‘Take Me Away’ is a fun and upbeat throwback to an 80’s pop-rock sound while being a slight deviation from his previous single, “Light Me Up,” which features a harder alt-rock style.
In a statement to Folk N Rock, Ratinoff comments about the song by saying:
“Take Me Away” is the second single from my upcoming album LET IT OUT and I am very excited to share it with everyone. I wanted to write a fun dance song, I think it’s my version of what an Alternative Pop song sounds like in the Ratinoff world,”
On the video he adds:
“The experience of shooting the music video was quite fun and challenging. The concept came from video director Jen Rosenstein and features a cast of characters and a revolving car door of human behavior. I have worked before as a driver, so I knew exactly what I was getting into, I’m very happy with the end result, and I’m excited to share with everyone,”
Let it out will be released on September 17, 2021 through CEN/The Orchard.
