“A first song as a band is very crucial. With “Fools Rule” as their debut, Whiting is taking a jump with a clean slate and ready to rock.”
Oh how lucky we, fellow Pennsylvanians, are! If you did not know, Whiting was once known as Coastalrise. This was their debut concert. Instead of going over the top and renting out a huge hall for the event, Whiting brought us to their home. Setting us up for an intimate but rocking show. Front man, Timmy Whiting, won the crowd with his witty humor. Every song was so raw. You can definitely tell the band was in their element. Their tropical/folk/soft rock/indie pop sound will compel you. The effortless tone in Whiting’s voice demands attention. My favorite song, of course, was “Fools Rule.” It’s their first single as Whiting. This song is an uplifting tune about being you and forgetting the haters. My favorite line is “Zeros are heroes cause they don’t care what people say.” It’s very tweetable. A first song as a band is very crucial. With “Fools Rule” as their debut, Whiting is taking a jump with a clean slate and ready to rock.
