Des Rocs Bares Emotional Scars in ‘Manic Memories’
Written by Radio 44 Ceylon on July 15, 2022
Danny Rocco, better known as Des Rocs, owns his personal baggage in “Manic Memories.” The new single builds from a low-key, classically emo guitar riff to an explosive, heartfelt chorus. The sound perfectly embodies Rocco’s go-to “bedroom arena rock” approach.
“‘Manic Memories’ is a letter to the demons that haunt our past,” Rocco said in a statement. “The last few years have been a roller coaster, and writing about those demons provided the courage to navigate my own darkness. For anyone haunted by their past – I hope this song can be a beacon of light to guide you through the wilderness.”
The release of “Manic Memories” comes close off the heels of Rocco’s July 4 announcement of an upcoming series of new singles. It is his first release since the 2021 debut album, A Real Good Person in a Real Bad Place.
Des Rocs is currently headlining a summer tour. Upcoming stops include Denver, St. Louis, and Nashville.
