Indigo Summer release second single NOT TO today
If you have read my previous review on Indigo Summer’s debut single Slow Down Summer then you know I am a huge fan of their music and strongly believe in their future success. With the first single being a Summer anthem and a very up-beat ‘fun lovin’ track, Indigo Summer have released their second single, Not To, which shows a more serious side to their music and proves how dynamic they can be both lyrically and musically.
You can download Not To here: Listen to Not To – Single by Indigo Summer on @AppleMusic.
Bryan Edwards and Hope Nix who make up Indigo Summer – both take lead vocal on this song. Not To is a song Not to be something you miss (there is a song in there somewhere 😀). The song sets the stylings for the rest of the album, which I can tell you is a gripping album full of melodious, noteworthy songs throughout. But that is another review for another time.
What I like about this song, is that it holds similarities to Lady Antebellum yet retains a lot of originality too, showing Indigo Summer have their own style. Bryan and Hope’s voices blend very well together and both have a notably southern accent which is refreshingly natural.
Not To is a mature, catchy song with a sweet-sounding, foot-tapping melody that has instant appeal. It is certainly a song I can imagine being played on country radio a lot and hope it gets that opportunity. The song is about attraction, temptation and how hard it is to Not To do all the things that you know you shouldn’t. This song is likely to be relatable to a lot of people and as Hope said to me in an interview – ‘especially when there is drink involved’. The song’s setting is in a night-club and the lyrics tell us of dressing up for the occasion, in the hope that the other person makes an appearance, and all those oh-so regrettable decisions you make when drinking that seemed like such a good idea at the time. Hmm, been there? All they need to put in the lyrics, is something about a stupid drunken text message and I think they have described every woman who has access to a mobile phone on a night out haha! Or even every man? I like the line ‘I’m gonna stay after all my friends have left’ which, to me, explains the knowledge that your friends will try to prevent you from making a bad decision so best to wait till they aren’t around – oh no! Boy am I glad I am married and don’t have to go through these kind of situations again, haha.
I strongly recommend you to purchase this song and to keep your eyes and ears open for future music from Indigo Summer.
