The Americas are the West Midlands based trio who last year was labelled Gigslutz hottest newcomer and was included in Fred Perry Subcultures’ tips for 2017.
Now we are nearing the end of 2017 and we have just been greeted with another single from them in the form of ‘Something’s Gonna Happen’.
Prior to discovering The Americas, I don’t think I’d ever come across a band with such a suitable name, particularly now due to this latest single.
They have absolutely perfected a whole Texas sound which has a slightly American Country-esque style to it but they have also managed to balance it with the classic English Rock ‘n’ Roll vibe from the instrumentals right through to the vocals, it really is quite extraordinary.
The song itself is one for me which has reasonated a lot with myself. Not due to the fact, as it seems in the opening verse that it’s a message to a partner but because, to myself, the chorus is very much about getting out there and making things happen for yourself and not just giving yourself the ‘same old excuses’ or saying you’ll do things tomorrow purely because ‘Something’s Gotta Happen.’
This is an outlook that I feel everyone should have to ensure everyone tries their very best to get to where it is that they need to be and The Americas have managed to summarise this excellently by way of this track.
‘Something’s Gotta Happen’ is an extremely catchy song which I have no doubt is one which is very well received at gigs of The Americas who are currently on tour with This Feeling. To hear this track live for yourself, get down to one of the following shows:
