Karen Lee Batten proves once again that her vocals were born to perform in the Country Rock and Americana power realms with this brilliantly energising and infectious new anthem.
Offering precisely the uplift and escapism implied by its title, Drinkin’ Song is there to be yours – written as the singer’s, but open and vague enough in detail to be precisely the anthem for the good times (or drowning out the weight of the world) that our current shared situation seems to need.
Featuring a mighty musicality with a superb clap to stomp and knees-up of a rhythm, and organic, addictive layers that beg for a live show and audience participation, Drinkin’ Song is as melodically satisfying as ever. The release proves a timeless go-to, faultlessly delivered by an ever passionate and captivating Karen Lee Batten.
Turn this one up loud.
