For lazy Sunday nights, a good pop-rock spin is all you need, and in shades of red and blue. (Loving him was red?)
My Red & Blue, the project of 22-year-old, newbie Nashville local Ben Eggebrecht, is set to make hearts aflutter by taking everyone through “a colorful palette of youth, nostalgia, and summertime” — basically, a whole big bowl of fun.
Ben’s debut EP, The Start, is a five-track collection of radio-friendly tunes that could give his contemporaries a run for their hard-earned iTunes sales, if given the right push.
The sass starts right away with “Never Gonna Be Mine,” a declaration of romantic defeat set to alluring Owl City-ish vocals and infectious melodies.
He sure did his homework, as the subsequent tracks are also ripe for the picking: “Feel Like Falling” is a concert arena anthem waiting to happen for the younger set (read: 1D fans), while “Color” is a standard-issue The Script composition.
If he keeps this up, millions of tweens will be lining up for his shows in the near future.
