Artist: Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties

Track: “Green Like the G Train, Green Like Sea Foam”

aaron_west

We’re still nearly a month away from the official release of Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties’ Bittersweet, and yet we’ve already received an adrenaline boost with the passionate bookends of the three-song EP. Not unlike the previously released ’67 Cherry Red’, The Wonder Years’ frontman unleashes his inner turmoil over flamboyant horns and subtle folk influences on ‘Green Like the G Train, Green Like Sea Foam.’ It’s a song rich with emotion and imagery as Dan Campbell reveals his more poetic side with a sense of conviction – On a calendar long enough, all my grief starts to decay / Staring off at the skyline over shorebreak, and remembering that this same ocean almost killed me. For a fictional character, Aaron West feels more like a personal outlet for Dan Campbell’s passions, doubts, and struggles. The colorful visuals throughout the latest single hint at much more than lyrical storytelling, feeling more like raw and poignant reflections drawn from real experience. With his delivery as abrasive but refined as ever, Campbell holds nothing back as he brings his lyricism to life with a vibrant energy. Fictional character or not, the latest chapter in Aaron West’s story feels compellingly genuine, and it’s hard not to feel a sense of connection with the song’s vivid and relatable lyrics.

Not sure if I like this more than '67 Cherry Red, but this is turning out to be an excellent EP

2 tracks released on a 3 track EP that won't be out for a month?

yup lol, 3 weeks and 1 day if we're being technical. I'm guessing they'll probably wait until the official release to drop the final track, but we'll see. There's a 7" up for pre-order as well, so fans still have something to look forward to

Weird. Maybe the final song is just so amazing that it justifies this marketing move.

lol, I guess you know me too well acad. to be fair though, I have been trying to switch these up as much as I can, especially with the throwback Thursday entry's that have ranged from Alanis Morissette to Metal Church and Bob Dylan ;)

The last lp was excellent, keen to give this ep a run once it's out. Seeing The Wonder Years live in just over a week

the 2 songs released so far are at least on par with the last album I'd say
