The Felice Brothers - "Cherry Licorice"

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Summer is near and the latest single from folk/country band The Felice Brothers has it coming a little nearer with 'Cherry Licorice”.

Accompanied by some twangy vocals akin to Bob Dylan at closest example. The real stars of the tracks are the fun loving vibes that are altogether silly and full feelings of young love of life. The Felice Brothers deliver on a distinct feeling of a band you'd want to see live on an outdoor band stand on a brutally hot day their music acting like a cool breeze. For all the happy feelings the song brings, the lyrics bring an unsuspecting dark edge talking of the roughness of the past; the message really comes down to wanting only the sweet things in life like cherry licorice.
