The Get Ahead play what might soon be the new “old time” music. It’s rootsy soul music whose lyrics speak in the direct, universal language of the popular song. “To The Wild” has a dusty, blues sensibility and a danceable beat. The band leaves space beautifully such that when they all drop in for the chorus and the guitar gets groovy-wah-diddy it hits you right. You get the full effect.
Today’s good song’s theme circles the adultery archetype. Throw on Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe” or Lemonade to keep the mood going.
“To The Wild” comes off The Get Ahead’s new EP “Mind is a Mountain” out now on
Jullian Records 2017.
