The more you listen to the entire debut album from The Band Perry the more you’ll love their stuff. It’s incredible to think that a band with kids this young could come out with something so different. Sure, there are aspects of their sound that are familiar, but overall they created something really interesting and different. Country music fans have been buying into their sound for the last year to two years and now it’s an interesting turning point for the group. I think there is still one more song left on the record that could be a hit. That song is Independence.
Independence – The Band Perry
For me the songs of The Band Perry are not really about the lyrics. Things are really about the melodies and that’s what I feel the bad is best at. I can’t really tell you what this song is about and to tell the truth it’s not really what I’m focused on when I’m listening to this track. I’ve heard it now probably a hundred times and each time I find myself singing along with the chorus and that’s the sign of a great melody or hook.
Like their other songs this one has that unique quality of being different than anything else on the radio right now. I’m not sure if the song will ever see the light of day on country radio, but it’s one that deserves a shot because it’s another top ten hit if they choose to release it. My guess is the band is working hard on their sophomore record, but sometimes that can take some time.
Maybe there is room for just one more single from this record.
