Theatrical as ever and fearlessly blending genres with an equally stage-ready presence and multi-coloured set-up – the new single from DawgGoneDavis takes things back to the bare essentials, of live rock and roll and catchy Americana songwriting.
Featuring a chaotic knees-up arrangement of fast-paced guitars, bass and drums, Love’s Boss soon brings in a spoken-word verse of confidently passionate delivery, to offer up a unique lyrical journey that aptly injects a clear sense of purpose and identity.
Following this, a simple hook melody and vocal switch in unison elevates proceedings in true anthemic fashion. The resolve works well after the free-flowing, uninhibited vocal rhythm of the verses, bringing things back to base for that essential familiarity and soulful calm. Given the single feature and shortness of the hook, the consistent return to this moment works increasingly well.
Notably emotional and swiftly moving from performative to thoughtful and loaded with scenery, Love’s Boss no doubt breathes new life into the modern music scene, utilising age-old instrumentation and recording styles to draw focus to a fresh songwriting approach and interestingly framed subject matter.
It’s a memorable track, for sure, and with each revisit the sound becomes defiantly unmistakable.
