The Band Perry have been going through some changes. They were released by the Big Machine group a little while ago. Then they signed with a new label that was mostly associated with pop acts.
Although that label also had country associations as well. It was kind of assumed that The Band Perry would be focusing on pop music exclusively almost like what Taylor Swift has been doing.
And that would be totally fine. I like pop music. I like country music. Why can’t artists make different kinds of music.
Sincerity is what people appreciate.
So The Band Perry has a new single that’s just out. It’s definitely a pop song, but I thought we could still look at it here on this country blog.
Stay In The Dark – The Band Perry
The Band Perry have usually been pretty good at keeping things vague with their music. I think they’ve done that again with this song. There are certainly some telling lyrics, but it’s difficult to really pin down what’s going on.
My guess would be that this song is mostly about two people that are trying to live in the moment. They’re together for the night with all the shades closed. They want to be shut off for the world and they want to stay in that dark for as long as possible.
Because when the morning comes or when they go outside they know that things will be more difficult.
There is room for interpretation with this song and that’s a good thing. It’s got an interesting melody. It’s catchy. It’s pop. I’ll be curious to see how it does.
I’m a fan of The Band Perry. I hope they do well with this single.
