Maybe? No, Definitely!

14 Apr

Heartbreak is a universal theme in music no matter what the decade, and The Living Statues brilliantly emote the sentiment in their retro inspired ballad “Maybe.”

Slow and steady, with a bluesy overtone, “Maybe” comes off as the modern equivalent of The Beatles “Oh Darling.” Much of the credit goes to lead singer Tommy Shears whose electric, painfully honest vocals cut through the song like a musical machete. Full of raw emotion, Shears takes a theme played over and over again in music and manages to make it fresh.

The electric guitar driven ballad helps give “Maybe” the modern edge it needs while still retaining a retro flavored melody, complete with crisp harmonies.
