Folk and Electronic Slow Funk. - Joel Ansett: Cadillac
You can keep your fancy cars. Joel is here to get real.
The vocal sense of chill here will resonate with fans of Luke Sital-Singh, although Joel Ansett also brings an edgy, electronic slow-funk to the mix. We are left with a license to be different as we look at the way perspective can change everything.
Ansett pinpoints the emotional reality of watching the world pass us by, but soon we realize that this perception of inadequacy persists only in terms of the tired metric that is ownership and circumstance. As we dream, and fall, and fail to find what we seek, a sort of wisdom emerges, as well as a fleeting sense of rapture when hope yields to acceptance. Only by not having a thing, do we learn how it weighs us down - only by finding freedom do we see the cage that surrounded us. Cadillac, the latest single from Denver’s Joel Ansett, lays an easy groove through the heart of affluent complacency: you can keep your fancy cars. Joel is here to get real.
He’s got a fancy t-shirt; she’s got a real good smile. I’m still the same old creature, guess I could stay a while.
Cadillac is the second single from Joel's upcoming sophomore album, set to release in the Fall of 2019. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
