Old Dominion are back with their fourth studio album.
It encapsulates, once again, the band’s personality as it’s riddled with catchy and clever choruses and a quirky, vibrant production. They have worked once again with the likes of Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins to bring these songs to life. A favourite of mine is the slightly surprising duet they do with Gladys Knight, Lonely Side of Town, in which Knight’s vocals are flawless and the band add a new dimension to their repertoire. Don’t Forget Me is another standout track, it’s lyrics are vivid ‘If a spirits running through you, looking for your hallelujah, if you’re somewhere feeling empty, I’ll be right here where you left me, Don’t Forget Me’. It’s a rhythmic tune that’s driven along all the time by a simple electric guitar riff. The single I Was On A Boat That Day has been in the works for quite some time, we’re glad they finished it, it’s a summer anthem that has your foot-tapping along as the care-free story emulates out the speakers.
To conclude, the boys have knocked it out the park again with this one as they solidify their place within Country-pop and continue to expand their universal appeal.
