The latest single from The Will McBride Group, “ICYMI” compels with its playful organs and mellow guitar stylings from the get-go, excelling into the disco-touched rhythmic charisma and climactic multi-layered vocal swell.
The melodic versatility and political commentary shows shades of Steely Dan, aesthetically. The “burn it down,” rousing past the one-minute mark proves especially stirring, critiquing those “who protect their career,” above public service. “ICYMI” is a rousing success from The Will McBride Group.
