David Fanning is still looking for that first breakout single. He was on the Broken Bow label for awhile, but they couldn’t find a way to break him into the mainstream.
I think the two parties have since parted, but David is still out there putting out new music. Earlier this year he put out a song called, First.
Now it looks like he has a new EP with four fresh songs out and I think this one looks like the most popular so far.
Check it out.
Ridin’ To The Beat – David Fanning
How funky is that?
I believe that David’s background is in production and songwriting. Maybe just production. But that really shines through on this song. The groove is really catchy. It’s not entirely about the lyrics and mostly about just feeling a groove and enjoying it.
The lyrics are pretty good. They’re about a couple that’s just having a good time. They’re getting lost in the moment and in each other. They’re just driving along having a good time. Listening to music. Laughing. Snuggling. Just having the best night of their lives.
There are so many little details in the production that I keep hearing on repeat listens. It seems like it’s simple, yet it still seems to have many layers. And it all comes together for something that makes you feel good. Maybe not quite liking dancing, but doing a little swaying and smiling.
I like it.
What are your thoughts on this one?
It’s a little different, but it’s good.
