I thought the name American Young sounded familiar. They were last on the charts with a song called Love Is War. I thought that was a very under appreciated record or maybe more like just under the radar. I think the people that heard the song thought it was great.
Now it’s time for a new song and it’s another good one that shows even more promise.
Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight – American Young
The sound is definitely country. I feel like it’s more country than a lot of songs coming out right now. You have the heavy fiddle in the beginning. I like it.
The song is about someone that was out to have a good time until they saw their ex. It’s pretty cool because you have both the male and the female voice. The male takes the lead so you can hear it from that side, but the background vocals add the female and that gives this song more depth than you would get if you heard this from another artist.
I think just about everybody can have a day like this. You’re enjoying yourself or having a good day and then out of nowhere someone or something pops in your world and it instantly changes your mood. It makes you feel crazy and it makes those you’re with crazy as well.
It’s amazing what the opposite sex can make us feel especially when there is history. All those old memories and feelings come about all at once.
Another great song from a promising new act. I like it. What do you think?
