(May 2, 2022) The highly influential Dan Auerbach run runs a label called Easy Eye Sound, which sparks a roots revival in the most traditionally haunting and quivering way possible. Artists that blend authentic life-worn lessons in the blues, country, and American soul music that reap poignant rewards for listeners of all generations. The blistering raw new single “Power Up” from David Newbould surely earns himself a shot with Mr. Auerbach soon as co-producer.
Glide is premiering the propulsive new single “Power Up” (below) from Newbould, where the lifer makes like The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in a grinding assault of guitars, horns junkyard soul, and vivacious directness.
“Power Up!” was going to close the album, but at the 11th hour it told me it needed to open it. I was in no position to argue with a song. After a solid year of pandemic life, powering up felt like the name of the game. It still does,” says Newbould.
