Like a welcomed shout of ghosts from our better pasts, David Redd’s refreshing single ‘This Gun’ is a story told in the most classic of anthems and soundscapes.
The song’s urgent beat, analog synths, and force-of-nature sax solo underscore a feeling of finally looking up after hitting rock bottom.
Presented in the best rock traditions of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the vibrance climbs with certainty and absolution, while David’s encouraging lyrics and vocal attentions, hold your hand right up to the peak of that vaunted mountain.
The brooding soundscape and vivid descriptions of a life going nowhere eventually give way to an exultation, which dares you to dance your angst away.
For the moral of the song, is that the past is the past, there are many more opportunities to come, which you’ll miss, if you decide not to see them.
Let’s open our eyes further, with ‘This Gun’.
Look for more from David.
