“Way You Move” by Ben Wagner
Ben Wagner’s country vocals will immediate pull you in and make you listen to his story. The chorus is so catchy, that I get some major Brett Aldridge vibes. Wagner has perfected his vocal delivery. There’s the perfect amount of twang that makes the hook even catchier than it already is. The lyricism and emotion in the vocals remind me of Gavin DeGraw. After hearing “Way You Move”, you’ll want to listen to the rest of Ben Wagner’s EP. Listen on Spotify and Apple Music.
“West Coast Turnaround” by Mike Vermeil
This one feels acoustic and I love the folk influence. There’s even a dash of mixed choir vocals. The mix on this one feels good for an indie film. I picture it being the perfect soundtrack for the part where relationships begin. The lyrics are catchy with a sense of light purpose. Listen on Spotify and Apple Music. Use the sound on TikTok and Instagram.
“SHIT SHOW” by Penelope Q
The vocal tone is unique and rich in texture. The guitar strumming and live drums sound amazing. Catchy hymns grab my attention. This song had me hooked once I heard it! The second time through, I felt the emotions hit me all the way. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
“Fire Sign Water Moon” by CARDS
I appreciate how the guitar rhythms blend with the keen vocals. The strings almost feel like an adlib. I love the build of this song. There is an epic movie vibe. This one is perfect for a nice vibe with friends driving to nowhere. Listen on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube. Use the sound on TikTok and Instagram.
“Till We Both Say” by Nicotine Dolls
This one is unique, the vocals are solid with a light raspiness. The pop beat in the background mixes perfectly with the rhythm guitar. The overall vibe is pop meets country. I like the snare choice because it blends well with the live drum set feel. I love the rhythm of the vibrato. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, or watch the Official Music Video linked below.
