- Bryon Harris
Based out of Seattle, WA, The Insinuators are an improvisational rock trio with a progressive edge. The Insinuators are Jim Elenteny on guitar, Dan Rogers on bass and Tim Geflach on drums. All three members contribute to the vocals. The single off their album 'Way Past Wichita Falls' titled "Don't Try Me No More" is a great introduction to the band's talent.
The song opens with funky rhythmic guitar licks. The guitar is soon joined by in-the-pocket bass and percussion. The bass is nice and fat, melodic, and the percussion is clean - a note-worthy rhythm section. The vocals are easy to relate to with just the right amount of expression for this genre and the harmonies are just right as well, not over the top. In addition to the musical foundation the track offers, an impressive electric guitar solo and jam session highlight the composition.
"Don't Try Me No More" is a song about not having the time to deal with people who drag you down. "Please don't try me no more. I don't have time to fool around. Not like it was before. I'm moving up, don't drag me down." These lyrics are uplifting like the music itself which will pump you up. For another taste of The Insinuators, check out their video of "Let Me Tell Your Something."
"Don't Try Me No More" and other great songs by The Insinuators are available on all major digital music outlets. The Insinuators hope to release a new album in the Spring. To learn more about the band, visit their website.
