The brightness of pop meets with the organic guitar swagger and song-writing of country for this beautifully summer-ready new single from Ontario’s Alexis Taylor.
Leading with a brilliant edge of folk-rock and upfront, clean-cut vocals that meander faultlessly throughout the stages of the song, Getaway is an easy hit – catchy and comfortable, well-produced, with a likably nostalgic energy that’s a pleasure to escape into.
Setting the scene with clear imagery and detail, Getaway progresses from its simple verses to the satisfying resolve of its hook in a manner that feels a little like a nineties pop-country hit.
Throw in a stylish dash of electric guitar towards the end, and a middle-8 that loads up on rising anticipation, and Getaway introduces the sound and style of artist Alexis Taylor in an impressive way. Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come.
