A former opera singer turned country music singer/songwriter, Jamie Carol shows his winning storytelling and melodic abilities on the track “Lemonade,” from the album of the same name. Piano and strings lead with patience initially, perking up rapidly as Carol shows lyrical yearning for a “tall, sweet, sour ice cold glass of lemonade.” The track’s lyrics concoct a sugar high feeling in their own right, with the enthusiastic piano and string-fronted instrumentation adding well to the vibrant, fun party-set feel. Some people like a cold Coca-Cola. Others prefer a hot mug of coffee. Many enjoy a cocktail. But for some, an ice cold glass of lemonade certainly does the trick, and this track seems fit for those in agreement.
“Lemonade” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2021’ Spotify playlist.
