There Rooney does production engineering for Austin’s many venues and festivals. His partner in creating White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer is Karl Williams.

Most of White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer’s self-title album was composed while on the road as an engineer for such artists as The Flaming Lips, Iron and Wine and Sam Sparro.
The White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer album creates a dreamy, electronic pop sound, which sometimes sounds folky too. “Don’t Listen to the Man” creates the overall best harmonious experience. It has pitch perfect vocals, intriguing lyrics and a marketable beat. Of the entire album, this is the song that receives the most repeats. A meditative element to the song makes listeners wonder about what defines them. This is also the albums most prominent theme. “Tiny Little Creatures” evokes the most creative beats with its marching style. This style fits perfectly with the idea of marching towards every day duties. We’re all soldiers in a war against surviving conventional life.
White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer’s biggest strength is their lyrics. Each song has lyrics with various layered meaning. The lyrics match almost effortlessly with the beats created for each song. For example, a song about fading dreams has electronic dreamy tones to match it. One negative of White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer is “Tiny Little Creatures” and “Where Your Gardens Grow” sounds a little too similar. Their beats and themes create almost the same musical experience. Their beats are definitely not identical but the approach to each song feels like déjà vu.
There is something very admirable and intriguing about the White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer album. What White Chocolate Rainbow Destroyer creates with their six songs makes them a bold explosion into the world of any musical genre.
