Here is a new country, rock, Americana style band. But the kicker here is the band is from the UK. And you can definitely hear some elements of UK music in there. Maybe even some Irish style music as well.
I guess maybe that’s part of the UK. I need to freshen up on my geography.
Anyway, I’ve had a couple of listens to their new EP. I thought we could look at the lead off track from that new set.
Check it out.
Show – Carousel
What stands out first is the sound. It sounds like there are multiple lead singers on this track. Maybe even all four of the band members singing lead at one point in the song.
And the harmonies are really good. It has the depth of the country acts that have been having success the last few years. Acts like Little Big Town and others. They have a really good sound. Maybe even a little bit of Nickel Creek and The Wilkinsons.
The song, I think, is a love song. I think it’s a little vague. Probably on purpose. I think it’s about feeling like you’re in love with someone, but you’re not sure if they are in love with you. You think they are. You can feel it. But you also feel like they’re holding something back. You want them to show themselves to you so you can both share the love you have.
But that’s my interpretation.
Maybe it has a totally different meaning. You’ll have to let me know your thoughts.
