Twin Fires - Let Me Be Your Man
- Review by James McGregor
Info: Twin Fires' 'Let Me Be Your Man' combines a dash of Blues with a splash of Rock N' Roll, a touch of American folk and a pinch of Motown to create a catchy and instantly recognisable pop song. There is an air of Kings of Leon on the lead singer's vocals and his coarse yet melodic tone works well with The Marvelettes style backing vocals.
Blues inspired lead guitar, stabbing rhythm and bouncy bassline give the chorus a definite groove and underpin the vocal hook effectively. This is one of those songs that fools the listener into thinking that it must be a timeless classic from the 50's or 60's, despite the fact that it was released in 2016.
Although Australian, the band have really developed an authentic sounding American vibe, and this will serve them well as they will certainly garner great reception from American audiences. 'Let Me Be Your Man' is a well put together, upbeat and thoroughly enjoyable piece of music which deserves any positive attention it receives.
