Backwoods Creek embark on a new journey with ‘Cryin’
Backwoods Creek – Cryin
Coming in hot from the UK, Backwoods Creek is a band to keep on your radar. Delivering a sound that feels both refreshing and nostalgic combined with story-driven lyrics, it’s no surprise that the band has enjoyed their fair share of successful shows and festivals. And they’re not slowing down. Backwoods Creek’s latest single ‘Cryin’ embodies their diversifying southern rock sound.
‘Cryin’’ kicks off with a heavy sound and a stripped-back melody that bolsters the Southern rock-inspired vocals. What Backwoods Creek achieves so effectively is keeping the listener engaged, you are faced with musical surprises and never know what’s coming next. It’s a refreshing and welcome addition. The rhythm is strong too, keeping you swaying from the get-go.
‘Cryin’’ is a snappy country rock track that will get you up on your feet thanks to the top-notch melody.
As for the chorus, it is also catchy from the offset and has an uplifting feel, which almost humorously contrasts with the at-times sombre Romeo and Juliet-inspired lyrics. ‘Cryin’’ has an excellent balance of instrumental sections and vocals, and mixes up the sound slightly with the verses and choruses. The result is a fun, infectious and varied country rock anthem that delivers everything you need in a song.
The sound of ‘Cryin’’ is reminiscent of Bon Jovi, so they’re absolutely one to watch if you’re a fan of the latter or looking to mix up your rock playlists.
