WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM ARCHIE BAKER – ANYWAY
Archie Baker and his eight-piece live band Archie Baker and The Blue Meanies have hit the rock n’ roll jackpot yet again with their latest single “Anyway”.
Bringing a refreshingly rich sound to modern pop Archie Baker blends big-band blues rock with catchy hooks. The result is a vintage yet highly accessible soundscape appealing to all generations.
Baker’s latest single “Anyway” may be a breakup track, but its energy is anything but forlorn! An animated blues rhythm and exuberant horn sections ensure a jolly atmosphere. Meanwhile, upbeat piano instrumentals and the soaring vocals of both Baker and fellow soul/RnB artist Courtney Wilson propel the track forwards. The song peaks at its explosive chorus in which empowering lyrics celebrate being finally set free from the shackles of a toxic relationship.
“Anyway” is a track where the musician’s enthusiasm is contagious. Layered and splendid in its multi-instrumentalist approach the talent that exudes from this single is staggering. Powerful is the first word that springs to mind when listening to this track.
Baker’s new single “Anyway” showcases his skill as a songwriter and his ability to draw people together in both his band leadership and melodic style. This soul stirring number is sure to strike a chord with pop and blues rock fans alike.
