This taste of sonic freedom is the debut single from the alt-country band and lets you know that they are in it for the long haul. Having started out in 2016 as a cover band playing everyone’s favourite country songs, they are branching out into their own music. Through their sound, they help you leave your troubles behind and enjoy a moment of unadulterated freedom and release.
‘A Bit of Country’ pulls you in with a wonderful blending of country and rock.

The vocals have a delightful gruffness to them that brings an earthiness to the music that enhances the connection woven into the lyrics.
