The Rupert Selection - "I Saw God"

Massachusetts has seen an influx in bands describing themselves as grunge lately, and one of our favorites has been The Rupert Selection. They've been adding some psychedelia into their neo-grunge sound, which ends up working perfectly. Their latest single, "I Saw God," is a loud, heavy, and trippy blast of a song. While the grunge label gets overused lately and is slapped on any song inspired by the 90's, "I Saw God" has that actual grunge sound of an extremely heavy song with fuzzed out guitars. Plus, it's as catchy as it is heavy. There are even some metal influences with The Rupert Selection (which most great grunge had), giving the song a Motorhead meets Mudhoney sound.

Guitarist and vocalist Reilly Somach says of the new song:

“I like the idea of keeping the interpretation of this one as vague and open-ended as possible. Whatever the listener perceives as being God within the song, that’s what it is.”

You can watch the video for "I Saw God" below. The song is available as a single via Bandcamp. For more on The Rupert Selection, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook.
