I heard this new one from Josh Dorr on Wild Country on Spotify. It’s a really well kept playlist on Spotify if you’re looking for new country music.
I think they do a great job of finding new songs from established artists and new song from artists that are under the radar. I would think that Josh kind of falls in the under the radar category at least for right now.
But let’s check out this new song and see what he’s got for country fans.
Rocket – Josh Dorr
It’s definitely got a rocking style. That fits in well with some of the hit country you’ll hear today. There are plenty of rocking elements. It sounds like guitars and even Josh’s vocals are on the rock side with a little bit of rasp, which is pretty cool especially in this song.
I would say this song is the style of Jason Aldean a little bit. It’s the kind of love song about two people kind of stealing away for the night. Whatever the situation is they’ve had things going on and they’re just looking to get away from the world and just be alone.
That’s a theme that’s been around in country for a while and even in rock. It’s obviously a feeling that many people get. They fall in love and want to spend all the time they can with the person they feel that way about.
And this song does it in a pretty new way. It sounds familiar while still sounding original and that’s a good mix. I think it has a chance to catch on, but we’ll see.
