It looks like Kelleigh Bannen isn’t working with Capitol Nashville anymore. They were together for a few years and Kelleigh released some singles without getting too much push on the radio charts. All of those releases were good ones, but sometimes things just don’t work out.
Now Kelleigh is with a different team and she put out an EP and a new video for one of the songs. It’s pretty catchy. Check it out and see what you think.
Landlocked – Kelleigh Bannen
Kelleigh has always had a cool style. I think this song at first comes across as one of those typical country summer songs. The lyrics are a little familiar, but the more I listen to this song the more it comes across as unique in a few subtle ways.
First, it’s kind of a song that pokes a little fun at being stuck in a situation that might not be ideal, but you can have a good time if you make the best of it.
In this case the situation is that you’re stuck in the city during a hot summer or you’re just stuck away from those glistening beaches and all those things. But if you find a few friends and some water guns and a plastic pool you can still have some fun.
The song also has a cool little groove. It’s kind of that mid-tempo type of song that just rolls along and gets you singing with it by the last chorus.
I don’t know what the reach might be with this song and EP, but it’s definitely worth checking out.
