Children are symbolic of freedom and hope. You see them play without a care in the world. You see them express themselves in any situation, not caring who's in front of them. But more importantly, they have dreams, dreams that reveal who they want to become; it's at their very core and their very soul.

As we grow older however, circumstances and our thoughts may drift away from that once pure thought of accomplishing and becoming that dream. It's unfortunate, but it does tend to happen. But no more!

From the metropolis of Beijing, China comes a veteran indie rock band known as Carsick Cars. The trio represents a generation that still believes in dreams, and their music is at the steering wheel by providing their newest album entitled "3", a 12 track album that has half it's song in Mandarin and the other half of them in English.

Their first single of the album is under the code name "Black Water", and is their latest release that sets the tone for their creativity and message to the youth around the world. The song is reminiscent of a punk bands efforts to fight the system but with a more gentle and melodic approach. Carsick Cars has a way to blend powerful messages underneath guitar rifts and fast pumping drumbeats that raise your conscious while feeding your relentless soul.

"Black Water" starts off with fast strumming of a promising guitar riff that cues the drummer to do the same. And in a flash of a sonic second, the song begins and your attention is grabbed. The verse then enters and appeals to the dreamers of the world, voicing the aspirations of the singer and then thwarting any attempts to tell him different. The lyrics though simple, are effective in the sense that it's more about the energy behind the words that actually serves as inspiration rather than the words themselves, to no discredit of the lyrical complexity. The lyrics then fade away, like a dream that ends by awakening from a deep slumber, into a world full of possibilities and rock music. The guitars keep strumming and the drums keep drumming, but a new guitar lead is introduced and conducts the feeling of the entire song. It's wailing and enchanting sound pierces through your emotions and reveals your hidden angst to live out your dreams. At this point in the song, you are deeply immersed in your feelings for rock music and it comes to no surprise that the uplifting melodies and soundscapes offer an attempt for you to regain that pure essence you once had when you were younger.

Carsick Cars goes ahead and repeats the verse once more to remind the listener that they are here to stay and reinforce the melodies and message they have brought out into the world of dreams and reality. The song then exhausts all of its might into finishing like a classic rock lullaby filled with reverberations and that sweet feedback every music fan loves to hear.

"Black Water" was an excellent choice to use as the first single for the album. The song will be known as the Carsick Cars' sound that will have an ample audience begging for more and rocking out harder than before. The Beijing trio of musicians have proven to be successful in their hometown, but now their dreams since being children are finally coming full circle with their music being heard around the world.
