In music, the new-normal is means the following: no live shows, no touring, and band practice is heavily discouraged, lest you and your mates violate social distancing guidelines. Apparently, though, it also means more music, as artists–especially Jax based musicians–seem to be releasing dropping new music at a record clip.

The new-normal though, at least as far as prolificness, is not all that new for rickoLus. The singer-songwriter  is constantly cooking up something, genre-bending and experimenting while always maintaining his lyrically driven style. (Read our profile of rickoLus from Void Mag’s June 2019 issue).

Yesterday, rickoLus dropped the new track, “Reach Out But Don’t Touch Me (21st-Century Boy),” a mellow, yet drive-y rocker propelled by fuzzy guitar and the artist’s singular and, in this case, flippant wordplay, as rickoLus wonders aloud in the tune’s first verse “what is this song about?”

A kicker, rickoLus dropped the song’s accompanying video on Instragram, which features the artist donning PPE and flipping through key lyrics from “”Reach Out But Don’t Touch Me” ALA Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” performance from the 1967 pseudo-documentary Dont Look Back.
