I never caught the Kings of Leon bug when “Someone Like You” was blowing up the charts back in 2009. I’m still not big on that song, but I have developed a liking for the band’s soulful, rootsy brand of alt-rock. “Supersoaker” is among my favorite tracks of the year, and I just heard another great tune off the band’s 6th album Mechanical Bull. Check out the tender vocals and sweeping crescendos of “Beautiful War.”
If you really want something in this life, hard work alone often ain’t enough. It’s persistence, tenacity, the ability to persevere through obstacle after obstacle in pursuit of a tangible goal, that ultimately determines who sinks and who swims. Brothers Alexander and Anthony Saddic know this well, having spent the better part of a decade performing as The GoAround, an alt-rock project based in West Chester, PA. Through a series of lineup changes, Alexander and Anthony have continued honing their craft and chasing their dreams. With earnest lyrics, heartfelt vocals and a knack for catchy guitar-driven melodies, these guys have definitely developed a winning formula. Take a listen to the lovely “Sunflower Song” and see what I mean.
