“Chapter and Verse” is the artfully captivating latest single from up and coming Memphis artist Ted Horrell & the Monday Night Card. But instead of running with the same old tried and tested rhythms, the artist subverts expectations entirely.
Throwing elements of New Wave and Post Punk into the prelude never set the expectation for an offering of an Americana Blues track with reminiscences to Nash and Young, the Byrds, and Buffalo Springfield. But that’s exactly what ensued with Chapter and Verse. The keys brought the Post Punk atmospherics while the guitars carved out punchy and vibrant melodies which seamlessly progressed along with the powerful harmonies in Chapter and Verse.
Ted Horrell & the Monday Night Card are an aural breath of fresh air and their latest single definitely deserves 3 minutes of your time.
