With the COVID-19 pandemic raging, Rival Waves jumped on Zoom to coordinate a live performance video of “Meaningless Chaos”. This song is the lead single off of their Chris “Frenchie” Smith-produced debut LP, A Meaningless Chaos.
A few late evenings planning and a few takes in separate places were in order. Coupled with a ton of coffee, smartphones galore and hours of editing, we were pretty happy with the end product.

Chaos abounds…. It happens to all of us. Not one moment goes by that we’re not dealing with life’s absurdities and messiness, or waiting for that next shoe to drop. Some of it is inevitable…most of it is meaningless.
What started as a lyric about coming to terms with the loss of my father in 2017 has taken a much wider scope in 2020. Nearly 200,000 souls departed, millions suffering all over the world, the rest of us living in constant fear of one another.
All too often these days I wake up with the same feeling I had that one morning twenty Septembers ago. That feeling that this all just seems a bit too much. It’s something that we’re all dealing with…something that we’ll all need to get through – together.
This song, much like the album that it will be a part of, has alway been about a choice: Are we going to succumb to all the meaningless chaos in our lives, or will we wake up every day, resolute in the choices we make and ready to keep the wolves of the world at bay? ~ RW
