The Retroaction brings the gritty groove of the 60s and 70s to the modern day. In 2016 the band won the "Best new group award" at the Hamilton Music awards. Keith Mosfet and Thomas Duxbury originally started playing together as a backing band for a local songwriter with Thomas on Bass but eventually decided to form their own band. Soon after Charles Kostash joined on bass along with Raul Gutierrez on drums. Collectively the band is inspired by groups such as The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, along with newer groups such as Arctic Monkeys, The Orwells, Black Keys, Alvvays, and The White Stripes.
"The video itself is a fun take on the exploration of our record collection. While the players hand is examining some of the classic and humorous records, the lyrics for the single are displayed along with band themselves. The lyrics for the song were written about the idea of loving a stranger, the brief moment of imaging life with them. The inspiration came when Keith had a large crush on a neighbor, the opportunity to speak with her never came up, but there was an energy, looks, and an obvious attraction. Once on a stormy night he witnessed her running from her car in their shared parking lot to her apartment below. "Tonight I seen you running, running in the rain. Thats how I know theirs something, I hope to see you again. But ill just keep on waitin', waiting for you. My heart is slowing breaking, I guess i'm drinking for two.""
