Tracknotes: “Movin” by Follow The Train


via Removador Records

A few thoughts inspired by Follow The Train‘s “Movin”, from their 2010 album Mercury

  • Epic pop song (NICE!). Sorta like “Hey Jude” crossed with “Corduroy” and “Champagne Supernova” but not really.
  • They just don’t make indie rock like this anymore – direct, anthemic, transcendent, spine-tingling indie rock.
  • Frontman Dennis Sheridan comes off like Greg Dulli, all the passion minus the strip-club creepiness.
  • Love that bridge – bassy, funky, spaced-out – a total freak-down.
  • Great symphonic strings too. Whodunnit?
  • There’s no easy way of describing this track without underdoing it. It’s just freakin great.
  • Probably one of the best of the year.  I’m sure I’ll give it the solid write-up at the end of the year.
