  1. It’s funny. Two reviews I’ve read both just say, “a western vibe.” While certainly true, when I heard this song on the radio my thought was trying to place the decade. It sounds like a 60s psychedelic song; the organ, the drum beat, and the western twang; this particular twang is more characteristic of the twang from 60s surfing songs. I thought Fordham Radio was simply playing a resurrected song from the psychedelic era. I had to Shazam it to learn it was from 2021. I’ve been listening to it on repeat all day.
