We’ve got an in your face feel-good rock song by Bradley Wik and the Charlatans today that’ll make you yearn for classic guitar-rock songs to make a roaring comeback. If what we can expect from Wik are songs like “Lookin’ At Luckey” – he might bring the revival all by himself. This is the perfect way to kick off your Friday.
Bradley Wik’s “Some Girls (Still Love Rock’n’Roll)” is a really excellent example of what I have controversially (apparently) called the Tragic Woman. As the song unfolds, Wik’s deep empathy and understanding for the character is evidently clear. The subject isn’t a source of objectification or moralizing. Whether or not this woman is real, in the song she is a complex and fully realized human. Straight male singer-songwriters of the world, take note: this is how you write a song about a woman.
Let’s Go Out Tonight” is an unpretentious heartland roots rocker that would make Mellencamp or Westerberg proud, “Let’s Go Out Tonight,” with its undeniably infectious melody and sweet harmonies, tells the real, relatable story of two people simply trying to figure things out.
