Alt-rock, funk and blues outfit Roots Asylum keep things raw and organic for another smooth and engaging new single.
Leading with a live sound that quickly transports the listener to a simpler, perhaps more joyful setting, Mosey captures the raw energy of the band’s performance to the same quality that it presents the story-telling and swagger of the songwriting.
Featuring strong progressions, not least of all the rhythmic rise and fall before the instrumental break, Mosey brings through a classic shuffle of a beat and an overall Americana-like sense of movement; which feels like a fast-train or the backdrop to a bar fight (depending on what you need from it right about now).
Barely scraping past the 2.5 minute marker, Mosey feels brief yet hits with impact, resolving back to that title concept just enough times to let it sink in. The bluesy confidence and character of this moment feels like an effective thread between the various sections and parts of the story-line.
Elsewhere, the band put in a united and impressive performance, as ever. You can feel the stage-ready energy, and still the lyrics intrigue and draw you in closer. The song satisfies and refreshes, feels nostalgic and exciting in its newness all at once. Nicely done.
