The Cactus Blossoms - Easy Way

Regular price $22.00 $0.00

Push play and the chords of an acoustic guitar immediately appear, followed closely by the tight, sugary harmony vocals easily mistaken for the Everly Brothers. And while the slightly retro folk/pop tunes are just as melodically catchy as on the duo’s previous release, these lyrics are darker and occasionally more socially conscious. The protagonist in “I’m Calling You” seems like a stalker who phones someone every hour from 2 a.m. on (“It’s been ringing over and over, it’s been ringing since two / Three o’clock in the morning, and I’m calling you”). And the lyrics of “See it Through” repeat 12 times as the singers are walking after midnight repeating, “I know that you really want to hang around…I know that you really want to see it through,” as a reverbed guitar and a lovely lilting melody set the melancholy mood. -American Songwriter
