NYC’s Watt White has penned the ultimate fight song. White has in fact composed many successful songs in the past and many have landed him well-deserved accolades from movie soundtracks to Songwriters Hall Of Fame Scholarship Awards. White has fronted punk-metal band, The SmashUp and toured North America and the UK with the likes of Megadeath and Deftones. His latest release (Feb 28) Knuckle Up, showcases Watt’s willingness and prowess in writing the perfect score for the perfect occasion.
He has in the past, written tracks for most major/cable networks and even the likes of the Kentucky Derby. Knuckle Up is a perfect hype-song for spinning while you’re doing what you do best, or when you’re belly-up to your most daunting trials and tribulations. Its lyrics reassure you that you’re the best at your game, whether you’re a motor-crosser or an accountant; we’ve all been there and eventually it’s just time to Knuckle Up.
White’s knack for creating commercial-sounding works always pairs perfectly with the task at hand. He expertly paints the soundtrack for the visual client at large. Knuckle Up uses high energy guitar riffs along with industrial sounds to get its thunderous, sonic point across. Raspy, on-the-verge vocals are like the trainer of a prize-fighter hyping up his contender for the next round. Hook-laden background vocals ensure the commercial success of Knuckle Up and retention of its listener.
If you’re looking for that perfect playlist track, whether Mt. Biking, working out, or just trying to clean your house, Knuckle Up is the perfect wingman.
