Song Review: Lauren Anderson Hits a Home Run With "The Game"
With a little bit of sass, blues, and rock n’ roll, Lauren Anderson is bringing us a song reminiscent of early Grace Potter. Released March 30th, “The Game” is a head-banger that will pump you up and empower your day! It has it all: attitude, a love story, and a bad-ass video. Why on earth would you not check it out?
There are certain relationships that are meant to burn hot and die quickly. That’s what “The Game” is all about. It gives insight into a particularly fiery relationship in which there lies no protagonist or antagonist. It’s just two lovers who both know in some capacity that it can never work out. They both love the passion and excitement though, so they’re letting it run its course.
Anderson’s voice is exceptionally showcased in “The Game.” It gives her space to really show her audience what she is capable of. From quieter verse lines, to belting the final chorus, she has a sound that you won’t easily forget. And of course, as you’ll hear below, there’s a tight and fierce rhythm section behind her. A catchy electric guitar motif leads into a killer solo over the bridge that will make you want to rock out. Drums and bass come in at the first chorus, and believe me, they make you feel the fire she’s singing about! So go ahead and click play on the video below and get into “The Game!”
You can find Lauren Anderson performing at the Nashville Offbeat April Showcase on the 25th. RSVP here! Go support and connect with her on Facebook and Instagram in the meantime. She has a new EP releasing on April 27th, titled...you guessed it…”The Game,” that you can grab for pre-sale here!
