Blues rock galore with Red and the Revelers. Just the plain approach would have been acceptable, but they have that certain spice. Like that addiction to cinnamon in your coffee. Their music brings as much joy and life to the party as any pill. There’s no post party guilt after this. This is their latest single, Shattered Lives.
This song has become incredibly popular, in quite a short period of time. With a blues riff that sounds familiar but has that bright spot-we are underway. The brass comes in with a stylish attack that you wouldn’t expect, bringing forward joy and plenty of merriment. If the vocals aren’t something to covet and award, I don’t know what to tell a music fan like you. The riff rings out in the background, the chorus having a powerful wave. The harmonics and calculated brass flourishes bring in quite a lot of that spicy flavour you would be addicted to. The breakdown is a catchy, funky and groovy section-feeding a bridge which the sax dominates. If you aren’t singing the chorus the second time around, you need therapy. Red and the Revelers have pitch perfect execution. This truly is serene swamp soul from the South. A Spotify bio never lies, only builds up the artist exactly like they’d want.
Don’t cover yourself up with this track just yet. With their 2019 album The Wizard and the Witch, Red and the Revelers show that they dominate this kind of sound. Get on Up (2014) featured a great performance by the late great Chadwick Boseman. This song would be the soul and life of the movie, without a doubt.
