For a good while we’ve known that a good singer needs a better guitarist. In the spectrum of modern music, sometimes artists can go it on their own and Johnny Marr has figured out a way to make things happen. With the first of four EP’s with Fever Dreams Pt.1 coming on October 15, Marr could find that he’s bigger than he first thought. Stream the video here and get your get down on.
The song gets going from the start, descending your ears into his own powerful gaze. The words have a very pinned and catchy sound. Playing what appears to be a nine string guitar, Marr has no issue pulling us in the whole way. The spirit of the song has a strong emotion to it without delving too deep on what that is. With Marr coming in with a pop stride, his words really stick without being washed over us in a weird way. In fact he sounds better here than he’s sounded in years. His overall effect here is strong and powerful without leaving too much on the table in the process.
The song “Spirit Power and Soul” can be heard above. It can also be heard on all streaming sites. Johnny Marr will release the BMG Label double album Fever Dreams Pt. 1 on October 15. You can preorder yours here. Johnny Marr is on tour starting September 20 at Stylus in Leeds, UK until October 08, 2022 in Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit, MI. See all of his tour dates here.
