The song has a true toe-tapping, American rock feel that’s right up our street, blending cool soul with blues rock...The vigorous melodies and stomping bass work perfectly to create a buoyant sound, and we can’t help but draw comparisons with bands like The Blacks Keys, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats or Kings of Leon. It’s a fresh, original take on a winning rock formula."
