Funky AND Groovy

Lambayeque Rock City Da'bam

This singer has a firm grip on the vocal line, but is not a primadonna singer by any means, which is fine for a fun little ditty like this, sort of Talking Heads/Dire Straits .

The guitar is catchy and combined with the bass is holding the center of the song's soul in a punk surf fashion with some pretty snazzy solo work in there, too. Quite enjoyably arranged.

The drums are straightforward, not too fast or furious, just keeping the beat in a danceable rhythm, and they fit the level of the melody and performance pretty well.

It is not a fantastic song, but for a lightweight it has a number of positives, a vocal growly hook, a big lead guitar, and a jamming bass. Words are not profound, but they don't get in the way. Overall I have to say I liked it!
