The Exchange Project deliver hard-hitting rock single 'The Safe Word'

In the midst of the pandemic, when the world craved a sonic escape, four talented musicians from diverse backgrounds united to form The Exchange Project. Combining their unique skills and boundless creativity, Tom Joss (guitarist from Cleveland, OH), Patrick James (bassist from Fort Worth, TX), Omar Delgado (singer from Caracas, Venezuela), and Pablo Contreras (drummer out of La Serena, Chile) have forged an highly alluring and dynamic 50/50 American and Latino rock ensemble.

The Exchange Project, also known as TXP, draws inspiration from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll while infusing it with their own signature style. Their music pulsates with high-energy fuzz-drenched guitar, intricate bass lines that ignite the soul, apocalyptic drums that make hearts race, and vocals that seamlessly transition from soulful baritone to unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll snarl in the blink of a bloodshot eye.

With their electrifying presence, The Exchange Project has become a force to be reckoned with in the local DC rock scene. Their infectious energy ignites every stage they grace, leaving audiences craving more. For fans of bands like Velvet Revolver and early Kings of Leon, their new single ‘The Safe Word,’ is a tantalising glimpse into their sonic universe.

The song kicks off with a crunchy, almost psychedelic guitar riff that immediately transports listeners to the nostalgic realm of pure rock ‘n’ roll. Delgado’s vocals, reminiscent of Pearl Jam’s raw emotional intensity, soar above the intoxicating melody, driving the song to greater heights. ‘The Safe Word’ is a testament to the band’s ability to craft a hard-hitting, all-encompassing sound that captivates and enthrals.

The Exchange Project’s creative process is a collaborative journey where Joss and James lay the foundation with stripped-down, groove-based rock ‘n’ roll riffs. Delgado then weaves his lyrical tapestry in ‘The Safe Word’, infusing the song with his dynamic vocal prowess and thematic depth. With each refining touch, their distinctive sound is born, resonating with audiences on a profound level.

'The Safe Word' is a hard hitting rock single that will appease fans of many, not the few. Check it out now.
