Ol’ Big Bear & Cinder Shine – “Let’s Go! (We Got The Goods)”


A bluesy rock immediacy rings true on the new single “Let’s Go! (We Got The Goods),” a collaboration from Iowa-based artist Dan Trilk (Ol’ Big Bear) and California-based artist Cinder Ernst (Cinder Shine). Writing and recording together since the pandemic, their “Let’s Go! (We Got The Goods)” represents their first official release as a duo.

Wordless vocal enthusiasm and a stomping instrumental assortment leads into the seductive opening vocals: “how do you want it?” The confident guitar tones and reflective organs build with sweltering qualities. “I can make it real,” the vocals continue into the title-touting charisma, bolstered further by a brassy punch. Shades of The Black Keys are evident in the production, and in that sense the track makes for a radio-ready sound in its bridging of bluesy rock familiarity with modern polish. “Let’s Go! (We Got The Goods)” is a fun romp from Ol’ Big Bear & Cinder Shine.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
