There’s a new duo on the country scene.
And if you don’t pay attention this male-female duo could become the next big thing. Burns & Poe have been putting out singles this year and the songs have been really good. Now the duo has a brand new song that is speaking for a large portion of the country audience. Check out I Need A Job…
I Need A Job – Burns & Poe
Now that’s a song. Burns & Poe take on all the BS that’s going on in DC these days. It seems the band has been sick of hearing all about plans and spending and all the BS that’s been spewing out of the capitol.
The song – I Need A Job – is only about two minutes long. There isn’t much to it as far as length, but the songs gets the point across. There is no time for anymore fluff talk. People just want to be left alone to their own lives. People want to have the right to be optimistic about the future. People want to know they have a job they can count on. People don’t want their hand held. They just want the right to go to work in the morning and bring home enough money to make themselves and their families happy.
It’s really a simple formula. Leave us alone and we’ll take care of ourselves. Burns & Poe seem to be of that mindset. When I think about anything political these days I just change the subject. There’s nothing I can do about anything anyway so I just focus on what I can control and try to make life a little better each day.
Burns & Poe have been flying under the radar since they’ve been together. They released a single earlier this year and it fell largely on deaf ears. I think a few people heard it. I reviewed it here on CML and it’s actually been one of my favorite songs of the year. I don’t think I Need A Job is meant to be a true single. The duo has been releasing these videos and songs in this format to try and stir up some attention.
Sometimes it takes a song like I Need A Job to get a band attention. This could be the one people connect with and request to hear on the radio. I don’t know if it’ll happen, but maybe Burns & Poe can catch some kind of fire with this song and find themselves with a big hit. Anything can happen.
I’m hoping something happens for these guys. They have a great sound. They have the pedigree of being in successful country acts before. And I think they’re putting out really great music. Sometimes that great music just needs a little push from one song that’s a little out there. I think I Need A Job has that kind of potential.
What are your thoughts on the song? Do you think it has a chance to get Burns & Poe a little notice?
