Here is a new independent artist that just put out a new EP. She sent it over to us here at CML and I’m always happy to listen to new country artists and their music. It’s a really cool time in country music. It’s definitely not easy for new artists to breakthrough, but it’s easier. There are more avenues.
So checkout the full EP from Lauren Flynn on Spotify. For this one we’ll listen to the title track.
Bad Decisions In The Daylight – Lauren Flynn
The thing that strikes me first about this one is the style. It’s different than you would expect from a country artist today, but it’s really pretty cool. The sound kind of reminds me of a few Eagles songs from back in the ’70s. I think it’s the guitar part that really does that for me.
I like that this one is pretty stripped back. I don’t think it’s acoustic, but maybe it is. I’m not an expert on that stuff, but this one does have something striking about it. The story in the lyrics are what really take the focus when you listen to this one and I’ve had to listen a few times to try and catch the full story.
It sounds like it’s about a cheating situation or a love situation. You have a guy that’s leaving his wife for another woman. And this song is from the perspective of the other woman. It’s not like it was planned or anything like that. It just kind of happened.
What do you think of this one?
