Generally we can all agree that there is nothing better than a great pop-rock anthem that brings everyone to the dance floor. You know, those songs that surpass the hands of time, the ones played at parties where everyone will sing in unison. Consider it the Def Leppard effect; you know the one that happens when everyone in the bar hears “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and goes a full on rock star.
Picture that moment when all the ladies suddenly become professional stage dancers reenacting Coyote Ugly, and for some odd reason, everyone knows the words. “But how can this be?” you wonder, some of these kids weren’t even born yesterday! Surely, they’ve been digging in mom and dad’s vintage crates for yesterday’s sounds. But, you shrug it off and immerse yourself in the music, the experience, the excitement. Well, the latest release called “Anchorman” from band Yesway manages to conjure up a similar effect and so much more.
“Anchorman” is the first single from the band’s highly acclaimed album ‘Double Bubble Toil and Trouble’, a clever name to match their clever sound. Something tells us this band is brewing up something mighty savory. The song is an up-tempo, pop-rock blast of energy with contagious lyrics, and powerful guitar dynamics. With a classic rock and roll feel and new age edge, “Anchorman” is a simple arrangement that delivers a powerful punch to the stomach of radio-ready commercial pop icons.
The band provides fans with a clean, unplugged sound rather than a highly overproduced, artificial version of recording laden with synthesizers, vocal changers, and all of the shiny gadgets that make today’s pop sounds less than tolerable. The band consists of Sean on drums and as lead singer, Colin on bass and backup vocals, and Eric on guitar and backup vocals. Together, the band has mastered a progressive pop sound laced lightly with a slight retro vibe, and remarkable guitar action.
The songwriting in “Anchorman” demonstrates clear, and concise precision. The song is entertaining, bouncy, and extremely catchy. The lyrics are written in such a way that they are easy to understand and enjoy against the backdrop of the smashing guitar riffs, bass and drums. “Anchorman” is definitely a song worth having in your playlist. The lead vocalist carries a mean tune and the song is an inherently fun-filled listening experience.
‘Double Bubble Toil and Trouble’ is a collaborative undertaking that consists of a collection of projects new and old as developed by instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and producer E. Meyers. The end result was a collage of sound carefully crafted to include music in it’s most natural form, uncut and minimally processed; leaving fans with a razor sharp yet, entertaining sound encounter. We wonder what this group of innovative rockers will come up with next. Learn more about the band Yesway on their official website www.yeswayband.com.
