Maple Run Band followed up from their debut single with their roots-deep instantly endearing Americana Country Rock single Independence Day.
Even the jovially plucked guitar strings on the intro made my soul feel lighter. Yet, that was nothing compared to the infectiously melodic choruses which are enrapturing enough to allow you to forget that despite Independence Day recently passing, America really hasn’t had much to celebrate recently.
Instead of equipping their single with an arsenal of futuristic frills, Maple Run Band went right back to old school so that when you hit play, you’re hit with a flood of nostalgia, good vibes, and much needed aural escapism. Any fans of Brian Setzer won’t be able to resist the rhythmic charm in Independence Day. Neither should anyone else with rhythmic pulses to arrest for that matter.
