Recorded less than three hours after SomeKindaWonderful fortuitously met in a Cleveland, OH bar, “Reverse” recently became the #1 most-played song on SiriusXM Alt Nation and the #5 most-played song on KROQ. PRESS HEREIn addition to receiving a nod from Billboard’s Bubbling Under column as “Reverse” hurtles toward the Alternative Charts, the song was named the “Best New Song of the Year…This Week” on Los Angeles’s 98.7 and is also the Top 3 most Shazam(ed) Alternative track in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Buffalo, Honolulu and more.
Endlessly catchy, “Reverse” feels both modern and classic, nodding to ‘60s soul and contemporary R&B with the dynamic range of big-room pop-rock and cinematic emotion. Lead singer Jordy Towers unravels a backwards narrative with a cadence that merges rap and soul, providing a novel lyrical framework.
The debut album expands on SomeKindaWonderful’s very own brand of neo-soul rock. From the album opener “Cornbread” featuring reverb drenched vocals and a swaggering guitar riff, to the gospel-tinged “Devilish Man” to the infectious pop-rock hook in “Shine on Me,” SomeKindaWonderful is one of 2014’s most exciting debuts.
