The Train Rockers' 'Black Sheep': A Harmonic Blend of Organic Rock and Whimsicality

The Train Rockers have a talent for feel-good rock. Their single, ‘Black Sheep - Radio Edit,’ brings that talent to us in its purest form. It’s spiced like a mulled wine; it’s wide like an acoustic strum and it’s homely — like memories of rainy days. The beats and textures of the track are familiar but done with a nuance that is stunningly new. Once the melody drops in overtop of these foundations, we are lost in it, the sound, the world, the light. The music that comes from rock is always organic, it has to be human. The Train Rockers ‘Black Sheep’ is as human as it gets. It’s caring, honest, and full of whimsical greatness.


It’s the sharp open that catches you first. The song begins as it means to continue, by making you feel at ease, by putting a smile on your face. Therein lies the brilliance of The Train Rockers. Once the beat has you and the song is chugging slightly, the vocals make their entrance. They are up, above the sound, they add some high to the mid and they give us a north star to follow. Through the changes, the verses to chorus, we hold on tight to these vocals. They are strong enough to guide us and bright enough to blind us. In the chorus they harmonise, they grow, the light expands, night becomes day, the lost become found.

‘Black Sheep’ is one of those singles that lives in its texture. It’s the feeling it gives you when you listen to it that makes it so special. Yes, the playing is fantastic, and how the instrumental locks with the vocal is something truly special. But it’s the nuance, the little things, the hum the song gives off when you’re not looking for it. The Train Rockers have written a classic with ‘Black Sheep.’ It’s bold, bright, and beautiful.
