The Righteous Rebels – “Chasing Cars” cover
“We’ll do it all, everything on our own. We don’t need anything or anyone. If I lay here – if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world? I don’t quite know how to say how I feel. Those three words are said too much. They’re not enough if I lay here.” – lyrics
‘Chasing Cars’ is introduced with a melodic ‘50s style arpeggio guitar line before allowing Keren Botaro’s vocals to whisk you away. The tune is anchored down by drummer, Yotam Weiss, and bass player/audio engineer, Fox Fagan. Also, “Chasing Cars” contains backing vocals that might make the Bad Seeds proud, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of the Snow Patrol, Leon Bridges, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Aaron Frazier. The spirited tune possesses wailing Hammond organs-laden instrumentation flavored with a lush, retro-sounding R&B-rock vibration.
