Antigone Rising are hard working women in the alt-country world. They’re bringing some grit and real life to country music at a time when the genre really needs it. Listening to their first single will bring back some memories of country that’s been popular in the past. You’ve got songs of taking life to the edges with a little grit in the music and the sound. Give it a listen and see what you think.
That Was The Whiskey – Antigone Rising
The first thing you notice with Antigone Rising is the singing. They have these really cool layers of vocals. You get all those harmonies coming in at once throughout the song and it’s really cool. You only get that with a few country acts today and you don’t really get it from an all-female group. I think it’s something that country could use right now.
My point of view on the song is that it’s about a girl that kind of took things a little too far one night. She’s out having a good time and really cranking things up out on the town. But she’s thinking back and looking back on the night and thinking that it couldn’t really have been her out there doing all those crazy things. It wouldn’t have happened without a little liquid courage in the form of a few whiskies.
I’m sure we’ve all been there. You kind of shake your head the next morning. Oh well. It happens.
