A Tree, A Punk, 2 Masks, A Dove” is the debut single from Righteous Punk – the alias of writer/producer and Roseburg lead singer, Zach Knell. Mixed by Grammy award-winning recording and mix engineer Adam Hawkins (Twenty One Pilots, Walk The Moon, 5 Seconds of Summer) and co-written by Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens, the single represents a new chapter in the symbolic journey of Righteous Punk.
Righteous Punk defies expectations and genre boundaries with “A Tree, A Punk, 2 Masks, A Dove.” With what seems to start as an orchestral indie-pop track, he seamlessly transitions into a modern Coldplay-esque arrangement. His vocals are clean and pop-style, with a hint of punk rasp, complimenting the already engaging melody.
He follows with a more rock-oriented chorus that sounds heavy and lush, while still managing to maintain a sense of space and lightness. The song takes the listener on a journey full of pleasant surprises. We’re loving this track.
