Finding new artists is what we like doing here at CML.
We do what we can to find new music and new artists, but we also get emails about new artists.
An email about Christian Connor & Southern Gothic came through last week and after checking out the band’s new single it’s safe to say these guys have something unique. The sound is really interesting.
Listen for yourself.
Sheets Down – Connor Christian & Southern Gothic
It’s really interesting. It seems to just be a song about life and living in the moment. The guys are just going with the flow and trying to figure out life. It’s raining sheets and they really don’t want to be anywhere else.
The melody is really the story here. It’s like a folk sound with a little country and rock mixed in. It’s really hard to define the music and I think that’s a good thing.
The band seems like they’re comfortable in the country world, but I’m sure they want to bring more of that independent sound to the mainstream, which has been a movement in the country world of late.
I really like this sound and I could see the band doing well in 2013. The melody is really good and it’s something you can sing along with when you’re listening.
That’s always an important test – can you sing along – and this song passes that test.
I think you’ll find yourself remember a lot of the images in the song like the word “codeine”. You don’t hear that all the time in a country song. It stays with you.
What do you think of this new band?
