Art Auré - Right Now - Stereo Stickman

Art Auré Right Now


Art Auré’s latest single is being released to coincide with her birthday. And in the same way we might wish to prolong our own birthday celebrations, Right Now is a party that certainly deserves re-listens.

As with her previous releases, there is a layering, sheen and care to this production that speaks of focus, determination and a reverence for funk and soul that goes beyond the call… Of course, Right Now is a clarion call to all to embrace the power of… well, of right now, actually – of living in the moment – to maybe switch off our screens and engage… and this song in itself it’s a vital mix of human virtuosity, interaction and engagement, to be sure.

For a start, aside from the standard band line up, there’s a full-throated, toe-tapping, swinging brass section, a string section sawing crisply away… and lest we forget, the mellifluous, engaging and beautifully-delivered vocals themselves.

It all kicks off however, with an indie-rock sounding guitar riff, which may open up this highly accomplished pop/soul/funk artist to a whole new audience. I’m put in mind of Kings of Leon, circa Only By The Night. I’m not suggesting the riff is dating the production, it’s just surprising that such a riff becomes incorporated into such a lush arrangement.

One thing’s sure – it’s definitely time to put on your dancing trousers!

‘There ain’t no wrong or right / Just go on and live your life / Go on and shine your light’. Well, we’ve covered Art’s releases here on Stereo Stickman before – and so continues Art’s musical journey – it’s an inclusive one that she seems determined to empower us all with.

And I think you can guess when she expects us to have taken care of that by?
