At the end of the day, rock ain’t so bad.
Elise Davis' “Finally” is as straight-ahead as a rock song can come. Not only lyrically -- the song extols the virtues of unplugging and living in the moment -- but sonically as well: simple chords ring for days over rock organ and sturdy bass. Davis’ plain voice fits in well with the rest of the song, carrying through until a distorted solo takes it away. At the end of the day, rock ain’t so bad.
“‘Finally’ is pretty much the only lighthearted happy song on The Token,” says Davis. “It's a rock song about feeling good, disconnecting from everything electronic, and present in the moment.”
The Token is out September 9th.
