When I hear this, I hear Art Alexakis, if he grew up in the bayou with a banjo and a Mississippi saxophone. It's got that stompy Credence-style straight-ahead groove with a lot of acoustic guitar over the top. It's a picking party and a folk-rock afternoon drinking song.
And there's that everyday-survivor theme, to just dust yourself off and get out there; which is an important thing to remember. Find the Light is good advice, plain and simple:
“when you get beat down
get yourself off the ground
turn your life around and
find the light”— Whitacre
Whitacre is a folk-rock band from Denver, Colorado.
