LUCKY STREET by GO RADIO (Fearless Records)
Tallahassee, Florida’s own Go Radio broke into Billboard with its 2010 EP Do Overs And Second Chances. The group has now returned with its debut full-length with producer Tim O’Heir. Lucky Street is full of infectious pop alternative anthems that let you bounce along with the energy that is given to us the listeners.
One well written song is Swear It Like You Mean It shows that the band can orchestrate a great song with some acoustic arrangements with both piano and acoustic guitar added to their already powerful sound. Right after they get personal with another softer piano song. Again this shows yet another side of the band. The strong song writing from this song Why I’m Home is about love. This song could easily be a reach out piece but being that it’s personal about love the songs come across as an emotional relief. The girls will connect really well with this ballad.
Forever My Father is a great piano memory thinking song that will bring you tears and is a beautiful strong tune. Of course the CD is full of radio friendly exciting audience go getters with such songs as Lucky Street, Any Other Heart, Singing With The King, and Kill The Beast.
Fight Fight (Reach For The Sky) is one of the better fast paced cuts that turns into a great anthem song that will get the audience bouncing around. Strong writing and good usage of the piano and acoustic guitar added to this first full release. 14 songs in total. Well done on Lucky Street!
