Wild Horse

Buckle up, music enthusiasts! It's time to saddle up and gallop through the latest offering from the dynamic pop-rock trio, Wild Horse. After nearly a year and a half since our last encounter with their electrifying sound on "Bitter," we're eager to see how they've evolved. With their reputation for delivering stellar live performances in 2024, anticipation is high for what they have in store for us this time around. So, let's dive into their latest release and see just how much Wild Horse has grown since we last crossed paths. Get ready for a wild ride!

"Keep On Moving Up" is a transcendent journey through the daily grind of the career-driven, set against a backdrop of jazzy funk-pop infused with a northern soul vibe. Crafted by the talented trio Wild Horse in Jack Baldwin, brother Henry Baldwin and Ed Barnes, led by the charismatic vocals of their front-man Jack, this infectious anthem pulses with energy and optimism, urging listeners to persevere in the face of adversity and keep reaching for their dreams. From the moment the twangy guitars and driving beat kick in, the listener is swept up in a whirlwind of infectious melodies and vibrant instrumentation. The song's production, helmed by Matt Leppanen and Wild Horse themselves at The Animal Farm Music studio in London, is nothing short of masterful, with each element carefully crafted to create a sound that feels both nostalgic and refreshingly new.

The opening lines - "Like a bullet, Every morning you are up and out the door..." immediately set the tone for the song, capturing the relentless pace of modern life and the constant pressure to keep moving forward. This imagery is both vivid and relatable, drawing listeners into the world of the protagonist as they navigate the challenges of the workplace. Throughout the song, there are numerous standout lyric lines that resonate deeply with the listener. Lines like - "The boss has got you on a string, So you can do all of the work..." paint a stark picture of the power dynamics at play in the workplace, highlighting the struggle for autonomy and recognition faced by many employees.

But despite the challenges depicted in the lyrics, there is a sense of resilience and determination that shines through. The chorus, with its rallying cry of - "Come on people, Come on now, Don't stop, Keep on moving up..." serves as a powerful reminder to keep pushing forward, even in the face of adversity. One of the most striking aspects of the song is its ability to find hope and empowerment in the midst of struggle. Lines like - "You don't need anyone, You just need yourself to work..." and "Forget 'bout all your friends, Don't stop to take a breath" speak to the importance of self-reliance and perseverance in the pursuit of success.
