It’s not just that the old ways are the best ways – it’s more that modern Country Pop has moved beyond staleness and towards putrification, having borrowed much too often from shallow outsider formulas, while keeping nothing real for itself. And if there’s any genre that should sound authentic, it probably should be Country, right? Analog instrumentation, storied vocals, and no freakin’ trap beats allowed! Midland just might have done it boys’ – part of a mini revolution, which aims to save Country from new Nashville’s current copy and paste zeitgeist. What’s more, these are brand new original songs performed in a classic way, merging the past with the present, through a perfect debut album, On the Rocks.
