Fall Right Into Love with Jeremy and the Harlequins

26 Apr

Every once in a while you come across a song that is so authentically retro, that if you didn’t know it was recorded in the present day you would swear it was released decades ago. “Right Out of Love” by Jeremy and the Harlequins is such a song.

Right from the start, with the rolling melody and the guttural grunts, the tune evokes shades of Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang.” But then the tune takes a sharp left turn into a ballad that is in the same vein as Paul Anka’s “Diana.”

“Right Out Of Love” is so undeniably 1950’s, that is really hard to process that this a modern day track. Aside from the jangling melody and a clear influence of artists from decades before, what helps this particular tune reach a retro level that few songs do is the lead singer of the band, Jeremy Fury.

Channeling Anka, as well as teen idol Ricky Nelson, with a touch of Elvis, Fury croons both delicately and full of emotion. Towards the end of the song, Fury riffs and reaches for the falsetto, making the finale of “Right Out Of Love” the kind of music every baby boomer wishes was still around today. And if you search hard enough, guess what? It is.
