Vancouver-based country and classic rock aficionados, Liam MacKenzie & the Moondogs concoct the perfect summer jam with their latest single “Circle On The Sun.”
With stacked guitar tones, anthemic choruses, and classic synths, it’s a song that comes ready made for any sunny day playlist. Beyond the general musical prowess, this is a song that oozes pure joy and fun. It feels good in a way would equally appeal to fans of John Fogarty and Tom Petty as it would to those of Zach Brown and Rascal Flatts. It’s a sunny summer party waiting to happen.
And that’s simply to say that it manages a delightful balance of southern vocals, twangy classic rock guitar tones, and funkadelic synths, in a way that brings both rock and country to the center of the table. Combined with the a story about youth, coming of age, and blazing a path, it’s sure to be anyone’s summer bop who gives it a listen. So be sure to check it out along with a gaggle of other songs off their latest EP “Once Again, Here’s…” which keeps the party going into an ever setting sun.
