One of the exciting new artists in country music right now is Chris Bandi. We first looked at him last fall with his new single Man Enough Now. I believe that one is still on our CML Chart.
But Chris just released another new single. This one is funky and fun and kind of makes you want to dance. It’s something a little different than you’re getting on country radio right now, but it works. I like this one.
Check it out and see what you think.
Gone Girl – Chris Bandi
Isn’t this just kind of groovy?
When I first heard this one I think it was on Wild Country on Spotify. This song really stood out from the other 50 or so on the chart. It almost kind of has a Michael Jackson groove going on.
Obviously Chris doesn’t really sound like MJ, but that’s kind of the groove going on. I could see this song being a popular pop song back in the ’80s.
But I really think it works well in today’s country music, which is a little modern with some dance elements. It’s definitely on the side of pop in the country world, but that’s okay. Some fans just want something to make them move and groove on the dance floor and this one will definitely do that.
I don’t think Chris is with a major label yet. It seems that he’s releasing things on his own, but with songs like this you gotta think that someone will pick him up and start pushing this at radio.
I like it.
