Introducing a Canadian artist with a blissfully poetic and appreciative style of writing, Laketown offers a country thread of story-telling and organic musicianship, alongside a soft rock brightness that helps elevates things all the more so.
Rod Black promises reflective, optimistic writing, and a voice that sounds naturally connected to this genre and the feelings of the song. It’s country for sure, but with a twist of fresh identity.
Rather than leading with up front classic country vocals, Laketown presents a sort of multi-mix of layers – feeling more indie rock in some ways and creating an anthem-like, stage-ready vibe in the process.
Refreshingly arranged, energetic yet warm, comforting in style and nostalgia alike – Laketown is beautiful, humble and laden with imagery that appeals. More than this – it’s a subtly catchy number, slowly but surely leaving its riff, rising hook and resolve lingering long after the music has stopped.
