Avresa continues his trend of hooking us to classic guitar rock. Hardly takes a song, and the addiction lasts forever. Understanding the structure barely matters after a point, this musician lets the whole song do the talking. Like a Satriani or young Johnson, he has brought the power of the guitar back into the zeitgeist. This is his latest single, Now Or Never.
This is a groovy, slightly funky rock banger. For this single, Avresa lets the guitar rest during the verse. The bass line follows his lines, his lyrics asking you to seize the moment to the best of your opportunity. The bleeding guitar in the background plays with the lyric-you see it recede and surface as the song paves the way. The chorus is an enjoyable rock swinger, the guitar flourishing its raw power while complementing Avresa’s voice. It is a flashback to the rock that he grew up with, along with his own style and approach, making it soundtrack worthy. A notable tone is the breakdown having the acoustic split, as the layers build to an immersive and energetic section that soothes with the salve of the guitar solo. It is one of Avresa’s best and catchiest, and you could have expected nothing lesser.
His popular tracks like Follow Through and Leave It All are great listens to see his dynamic range. Avresa approaches all kinds of genres that interest him, so there’s always hope for a surprise. I would love to watch this in the movie Point Break (2015). Follow him for more like this and listen to his brilliant work on any of the links above!
