Des Rocs releases video for his stunning new track Manic Memories


Des Rocs

New York City native Des Rocs has released a compelling new video for his new single, Manic Memories. This is the first single released after his 2021 debut album A Real Good Person In A Real Bad Place. The video is stellar as it brings to life a depth of emotions, all the while spotlighting Des Rocs. This single is just the beginning as he announced he will be independently releasing a string of new singles this year.  

Danny Rocco best known as his stage name, Des Rocs explains,


“Ever since I was big enough to sling a guitar around my shoulder, I’ve worshiped at the altar of rock music and the community that defines it. I began the holy ritual of shows in DIY basements and sweaty dive bars. Ever since then, I’ve worn my independence as a badge of honor. In my bones I’m still that same 13 year old hustling demos outside venues before catching the last train home from Penn Station. That’s why today feels like the perfect day to announce that the entire next chapter of music is about to begin. Let’s celebrate independent artists and the amazing people who make that independence possible.”

“‘Manic Memories’ is a letter to the demons that haunt our past. The last few years have been a roller coaster, and writing about those demons provided the courage to navigate my own darkness. For anyone haunted by their past – I hope this song can be a beacon of light to guide you through the wilderness.”
