New to the rock scene, Playing With Vipers is set to make a name for himself with his debut single ‘Bitter Taste’. Using heavy pop & rock tones – this song is definitely one you don’t want to miss out on.

‘Bitter Taste’: A Powerful Breakup Song

‘Bitter Taste’ is a breakup song that brings with it the frenzy of emotions that anyone can go through. With elements of hysteria, sadness and shreds of hope all being expressed throughout the song.

The currently unsigned artist takes inspiration from genres that he holds close to his heart, ‘Bitter Taste’ uses a subtle mix of softness and power to deliver its message. The single also brings a new style to the rock genre, ‘Rock and Raw’. Wanting to stay true to this new trend, Playing With Vipers take pride in only using live instrumentals such as guitar, bass, piano and drums.

The raw emotion expressed throughout the track lends itself perfectly to any future film soundtrack. If it’s looking to have heartbreak and the emotions that come with it expressed to its best potential this would be the song to use.

Playing With Vipers: Who Is He?

For Sebastian; college wasn’t for him, following a difficult breakup, the French producer found himself on a course that no longer interested him. Whilst in-between courses the 23-year old found himself writing songs in his dorm room to pass the time.

Wanting to continue this Sebastian decided to try and form a band. With the band eventually failing, the forlorn producer decided to further his guitar and bass skills to help improve his songwriting ability. To push this even further, Sebastian began to learn the piano and drums, this would then make him proficient in all the roles of a modern band.

Playing With Vipers then began scouting for singers in France, he would soon found himself searching in the United States. This is where he would eventually come into contact with Glass Elephant. Already lead vocalist for the well known Californian based band Beta State. Best known for the collaboration with Linkin Park on their song ‘Change’. Glass Elephant was an ideal candidate for Sebastian.

Instantly hitting it off Sebastian and Glass Elephant soon found themselves collaborating on a track that developed into the now released single ‘Bitter Taste’.
