Raygun Carver brings to music the playfulness and joy you should have making it. From hypnotic instrumental elements to fun lyrics and a mine’s worth of songwriter gems-he gets back with his latest single. Here, he’s bringing the spine-tingling joy of wordplay with his song. This is called, Everywhere You Go Is Where You’ll Be.
I know. It sounds like a Stephen Wright, Mitch Hedberg or George Carlin line. Expect the instrumentals to reflect that joyous nature as well. It’s this obsession of taking a fresh perspective in with the surrounding environment, but not changing yourself. It’s true, to a fault. Raygun Carver makes sure his lyrics clarify this, while keeping sweet country and blues elements peppered throughout. Hailing from the Pacific NW, west of Seattle-you had to expect a unique fingerprint on the songs he writes. The harmonics are hauntingly beautiful, especially the dedication to how the sound output is achieved. Whether he is approaching a bridge or creating a pocket where a solo will build a residence in your brain-it is uniquely him. Raygun is a singer-songwriter with a mind unlike any other. His influences exist, but in platefuls. He keeps the aural experience like a fresh glass of lemonade on a hot day. Refreshing and addictive.
You might know him for his popular single Bad Thing. Or you might have never heard a song. Either way, you’re in luck, for you might never hear something nuanced like this in very long.
I’d love to hear this in Jackie Brown (1997), which has its own spectacular soundtrack. The themes to the essence of the song is in perfect link. Enjoy Raygun Carver’s music and let your dreams run wild!
