Have you heard the brand new single from Chadwick Station? A British band that relocated to Nashville and they describe their sound as: " Brit pop, R&B, rock, a little country." We were approached several weeks ago for our thoughts on the song and how we thought it would do in the Beach Music community. It certainly has a 70's flair to it and of course we love to hear any song with brass! For any Beach Music DJ, if you don't have a copy of the song let us know and we can get that to you. Recorded in Nashville and mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London and we've already heard it on several stations/shows in North Carolina. The song is also available on Spotify and Apple Music.
In the press release on their website they talk about their new single, "Cryin' (Ain't Gonna Win Her Back). Pure retro R&B. Like The Sound of Philadelphia, or Stax out of Memphis back in the day. The folks in the Carolinas call it beach music. Contagious bass. Rhythmic drums. Dirty horns. Makes you want to dance. It's like you jumped in a hot tub time machine." You can hear the song during our live remote on Flip Flop Live Radio this afternoon (Saturday, August 22, 2020) from 4-7PM by streaming the show from our website or the Live365 app. You can also watch the music video below.
