Another Wild Country act for us here on CML. This time we’re looking at Lennon & Maisy. This is our first time seeing their music. They’ve probably been working their careers for awhile, but we’ll refer to them as newcomers on the scene.
It looks like they’re with a group called Back 40 Entertainment. I don’t know that I’ve heard of that label before, but for some reason it sounds familiar.
Anyway, let’s check out this new song from Lennon & Maisy and see what we have.
Up and Up – Lennon & Maisy
It’s something a little different, isn’t it?
I like it. Things start out with some vocals. I can’t tell if it’s about two people that are in love and feeling like they can work through anything together.
But it could also be about friendship or just about life in general. The theme seems to be about working through difficult times. They will happen, but you can move up and up in the future.
But then it also could be about two people that are just working to be together. Or about one person that feels like they can get together.
Lots of room for interpretation I guess on this one. And that’s totally fine. That will allow listeners to kind of fit their own lives into the song. And that’s important in music.
The big story I think on this one is the sound. There is something unique in what these two girls are doing. It’s a little different from what’s in country now and that could be a good thing for them as they work to find their audience.
