No matter what happens within the world of music, no matter how much technology evolves and the means by which sound can be made develops, rock and guitar music is always going to be a prominent factor within. One person delivering on this is Kris Anders as he goes pop rock on the new single ‘Ever Enough’.
This track is the fourth release off of his upcoming EP ‘Threshing Room Floor’ which is set to come out towards the back end of 2023. If you’re a fan of rock music and catchy choruses then it’s certainly one for you. The tune is incredibly upbeat and explores the complexities of a relationship, constantly questioning whether you will ever be enough for the person that you’re with. No doubt the song is filled with head nodding energy from start to finish.
“The writer is frustrated that no matter what he does, he is ‘never enough’ for the woman in his life,” said Anders about the new single. “it can also apply to the feeling of futility in trying to make it in the music industry and all the frustration that comes with being an independent artist.”
The song’s good, but there are certain elements that let it down ever so slightly. Given rock music stretches so far back, the overall chord progression and riff is a little bit uninspired, the track as a whole has a feeling of first draft as opposed to finished product.
That being said, there are plenty of positives to be taken from it as well. The first has already been mentioned in that the song is upbeat and incredibly catchy, certainly capturing the feel that Anders was almost certainly going for. Plus, his voice is lovely, grainy and so deep you could drown in it.
