Single Review: Click Chase's 'I’ll Look Happy as Long as You’ll Be There'
I had absolutely no idea what to expect from Click Chase’s latest song 'I’ll Look Happy as Long as You’ll Be There', especially when I heard what sounded like ominous keys building in the background.
Considering the ample airtime it has been receiving from BBC Radio I could have been presented with some generic indie pop, but I was pleasantly surprised when the vocalist started singing in his rugged raspy voice to the sound of a naughty bluesy guitar and doom laden bass.
There’s something really infectious about 'I’ll Look Happy', it’s really obvious that Click Chase know exactly what sound they want and how to get it. Citing a certain director as the inspiration for the song, I think the phrase “Tarantino-esque” sits right with this track.
The song's duality of mixing rather mellow verses with much more intense choruses undeniably provides a vibe that means I could imagine this song being on a big budget film score.
Through the deft mastery of his musical craft, Click Chase creates an image of an outcast, a drifter of sorts, riding their horse through a vacant desert.
Despite their being a very fitting lyric video accompanying the track, I would love to see a full blown music video for the song, with acting and explosive visuals to put the likes of Muse's 'Knights of Cydonia' to shame.
There is not enough blues rock music out there right now in the local area, and it is absolutely fantastic to see an artist like Click Chase giving it a go and absolutely smashing it out of the park.
Please do yourself a favour and check this song out if you’re a fan of blues, rock and Tarantino, you will not be disappointed.
