A simple 3-piece band sound is truly the measure of a song’s quality - there is nowhere to hide, and everything is apparent. Here the elements are in perfect conflux: the electric bass, the live drums, and the guitar.
The mood is reflective, and a bit disinterested:
“I get up, I linger, I lay
my ambitions deceased for the day”— Forever Son
And isn’t that the way - that feeling like everything is falling apart, with nothing to be done about it. Hence, the disaffection: ambition is always the first to go. Kevin's Street is an honest and rootsy visitation with the consequences of our own past.
Forever Son is the project of Torquay based singer-songwriter and guitarist Jack Robbins. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
