Rocker Aaron Lewis shows us a new side of his music.
The new track – Endless Summer – is about enjoying the summer life. There is the beach. There are fast cars. There are women and in some cases there is family. It sets the right kind of tone for those looking to have plenty of fun this summer.
Endless Summer – Aaron Lewis
I know this is going to throw people for a loop. This is Aaron Lewis, front-man of Staind, singing about the Endless Summer. It’s a cool track, though. It’s just something people probably wouldn’t expect from a rocker. It works, though. You just have to give it a chance.
From a rock fan’s perspective, this song doesn’t really work well. It’s too sweet and fun.
From a country fan’s perspetive, this song is great. It puts you in the right mood for the hot summer days that are well on their way. I’ve had spring fever since last fall. I’m ready to hit the parks, the beaches, and the golf courses. I’m ready to enjoy the open top cars and listening to the radio all day long.
Aaron Lewis has made a great country song with this one. I think it will do well on the country charts. I don’t think this one will be making its way up the modern rock charts, though. It might. You never know. The song reminds me of some of the stuff Nickelback and Uncle Kracker have done in the past.
This most reminds me of Uncle Kracker. That guy has always come across like the tough rocker, but his songs always have an easy going, laid back feel. I think that’s what we have here with this track from Aaron Lewis. Maybe he’s trying to expand his reach in music and really go for some new fans. I think it could be a good move. It’s worked for Kracker and Kid Rock.
I think there’s room for Aaron Lewis in country music. And if Endless Summer is more of the kind of music he can bring then I think it’s great.
