Cinematically immersive in both sound and visual, the immediate drama and emotion of Our Lives rains down thanks to the distant rhythm, the up front, crisp and clean acoustic guitar, and the rising intensity of the overall structure.
The brand new single from artist and songwriter Adam Cousins sets the mood with ease, presenting a pop-rock presence in its evolution towards the bright uplift of its hook, but holding close to those country roots in the vocal inflections, the story-telling, and the relatable personal touch.
The second verse in particular delves into this fusion of moods with volume and energy, and the accompanying visuals reinforce that all the more so.
Providing a brilliantly poetic switch to the accessible and memorable for the song’s chorus, Our Lives hits with the gritty impact of soft-rock legends like 3 Doors Down, but makes sure to also maintain the identity and connection of a singer-songwriter offering.
In short, the arrangement elevates the natural strength of the writing beautifully well. A powerful and moving, even catchy new single. Well worth a few spins this summer.
