This week, add some pop of ’60s tunes to your daily grind with the latest offering from Charlie Faye & The Fayettes entitled A Modern-Day 60s Girl Group on the Rise.
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Charlie Faye & the Fayettes is a three-member girl group (Charlie Faye, Betty Soo and Akina Adderley) that aims to revive soul pop ’60s music with a modern flair. In this collection, the group serves up six tracks that interlock modern quirk, vintage soul flavor, and flawless lyricism.
Opening the collection is Sweet Little Messages, a standout track that sets the mood with catchy melodies and lush female vocals. The song reflects the Americana consciousness and features catchy rhythms, a well-placed relation between the vocals and instrumentation, as well as a twist of funk.
Loving Names follows in a rhythm and blues style with electric guitars creating a sophisticated melody that’s perfect for easy listening. Meanwhile, Carelessly explores a soothing love song that sails smoothly in the ears. So let this soulful track travel you back in time.
Eastside cooks up flavors of funk and jazz that have been greatly associated with ’60s pop music. The said jazz soul style, which finds its origin from gospel music, serves as the backbone of this song.
All in all, A Modern-Day 60s Girl Group on the Rise by Charlie Faye & The Fayettes offers a fresh new look from a past genre by adding their own flavor to fit current tastes.
