Sweet spot music, that’s what this is! Yes, it has many other labels applied by any number of, quite frankly, lazy journalists – power-pop, pop-rock, alt-pop, whatever but labels are very subjective so better to consider what the music is rather than merely what we are going to pigeon-hole it. Sweet spot because Come My Way sits at a wonderful point where the accessible meets the discerning, rock muscle meets pop addiction, where rawness is tempered by melody, familiarity is balanced by inventiveness. Rock music devoid of the usual cliche, pop music with a new set of teeth.
This single from Andrew masseurs is that great polymath song, it doesn’t come with the bombastic baggage and cliche of the rock set but delivers a sound powerful enough to take your head clean off. It has the hook and zing of pop but with a depth that the genre rarely explores. Indie? Sure…you could even consider it dance in the broader sense of the word, will boogie music at least, try not tapping your foot to this! Pop was never this intimidating and rock was never this smart…looks like a third option is back on the menu.
