This week’s free single is Amber Waves by Erin McCarley. This song has a pretty good sound, and I think it could become a number one hit on today’s radio.
McCarley’s sound reminds me a lot of Sara Bareilles. She is very pop influenced but has some other sides to her. She is sort of country, and also kind of alternative. I think McCarley has a great sound for television. She has songs that will go good in the background and have something to do with the story. Her song Pony (It’s Okay) was actually featured in many television shows including “One Tree Hill”, “90210”, “The Vampire Diaries” and “Grey’s Anatomy”.
When I was trying to figure out the meaning of the title I really couldn’t. I’m still not sure but I think she is referring to fields of grain because she currently lives in Nashville. Something I didn’t like about like about this song is how much she slurred her words. It got to the point where I could understand very little of what she said. This song is good but not something I would want to listen to over and over again. Again, mostly because I couldn’t always understand what she was saying.
I give this song a 3/5 stars and I give Pony (It’s Okay) 4/5 stars and the same for Erin McCarley.
