Review by Andy Hawes for MPM
It’s now 10 years since The Cadillac 3 burst onto the Country music scene and in that time they have achieved a great deal of success on both sides of the Atlantic due to strong album releases and awesome live performances.
Unlike a lot of their Nashville contemporaries, they are not afraid to take a few chances and step outside the ‘norms’ of the corporate Country music scene and their latest album, ‘Tabasco and Sweet Tea’ is a classic example of that.
The current single, ‘Bridges’, like the rest of the album, explores a way more laid back and funky groove than their previous work. According to the band, they consumed a considerable amount of beer while writing this track and this probably goes a long way towards explaining the delicious vibe in the music.
There is a ton of space in the production, with syncopated single-note guitar lines, an unusually high-register funky bass riff and gentle guitar chords playing throughout the song. This repetition creates a crazily hypnotic and irresistible groove, while the melodies and hooks weave their way through the song.
A beautifully laid back Southern Rock style harmonised twin-guitar solo mid-song provides an extra layer of cool, while drummer Neil Mason switches up his playing throughout the track to build the light and shade and add interest to the hypnotic groove created by the instrumentation.
This is the kind of track that begs to be played loud on a sunny summer day when you have nothing to do but chill out.! It’s pretty much a perfect summertime single, so kick back, crack open a cold one and get your groove on with The Cadillac 3. You won’t regret it!
