This is a really nice upbeat song. They lyrics are a mix of random and storytelling, that makes this a very interesting piece lyrically speaking. Reminds me of some of the new wave songs I listened to back in the 80’s and I have a special spot in my heart for any song that brings on nostalgia. I really like the simplicity of the track. The guitar work is very solid and I think the simplicity of the line gives it an almost innocent quality. The vocals are also really nicely done though we don’t get a good sense of the vocalists range. Until the end of the song where we have a nice soring sustained note.
I liked it a bit more than I thought I would when it started. Quickly it grew on me so I would be happy to listen to this track again. I’m not sure I’m in a hurry to listen to more. I find that these days with as busy as my life has become, I often don’t have a lot of time to listen to music outside of the reviews. When I do I need it to be really hardcore blazing speed type music. All that being said, I would encourage anyone to listen to this track and explore Kicklighters other offering.
Who They Are:
I’m Everett Young, and I’m 45 years old. Just over 3 years ago, at 41, a Ph.D.-holding political scientist without an academic job, I went in a different direction and started playing guitar. I practiced really hard, formed a band, and made a record.
Given what I just told you, it sounds nothing like what you’re thinking of.
So yeah, I’ve come pretty far. Now I use my unique experience to coach guitar (and piano, my first instrument) for adults who want to start, or if not beginners transform their playing, at post-adolescent stages of their lives. I’m proof that older learners are NOT slower learners. I’ve gone from beginner to professional in less than 4 years.
I’m also a science and politics buff. Political science, duh!
