Sometime Sonny – Like Everybody Else

Aussie outfit, Sometime Sonny releases their new single, Like Everybody Else and it immediately finds a home in one of my personal playlists; I had that kind of immediate reaction to it. It’s lush with dreamy guitars and keys. Then, there’s these heavenly backing vocals that would make Paul and Linda shiver. 

The single went right into my playlist I listen to when I’m working – it’s heady, lyrically creative, and thought-provoking. It’s a track that inspires creativity rather than the opposite.  The lead vocal is Brit Pop by nature, it stretches from John and Julian right up to the golden Oasis years, but never copies. Vocal delays are expertly applied and the lead vocal sits perfectly in the mix.

The guitars are warm, fuzzy and always welcomed in the headphones. Shout out to the staccato guitar part behind the verses, it really counters the other plodding guitar throughout the track. Like Everybody Else is perfect mood-music for creative folks and daydreamers alike.
