Old Dominion Takes A Trip Down “Memory Lane” with Release of New Single (Review)
It’s time for the reigning ACM and CMA Group of the Year to come back with some fresh music. In the wake of the release of “Memory Lane,” an album could be on the horizon.
Several of Old Dominion’s songs have become hit singles. With Matt Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung, and Brad Tursi as members, the group has a longstanding place in the hearts of their fans. After releasing their debut single in 2015, “Break Up With Him” has remained true to the band’s artistic roots. In addition to experimenting, the group’s sound is not afraid to take risks.
There is nothing like a trip down “Memory Lane” where Ramsey sings the lines, “If i could buy a house on memory lane / I’d put my money down and I’d sign my name / On that little corner lot, where it don’t ever rain.” From the beginning, it’s clear that they want to be in a place where they feel comfortable and familiar. In a world filled with chaos, many people can relate to the idea of returning to where they feel familiar.
In accordance with most of their music catalog, the new song has a relaxed feel. In the same vein as the songs on Time, Tequila, and Therapy, “Memory Lane” feels effortless. New music will be highly anticipated if they keep experimenting with this sound. They seem always to write songs that set them apart from their peers.
