We’re All in This Together NEW Sam Roberts Band!

new cd sam roberts band

Today something brand new from Sam Roberts and his band – the first single off their upcoming album, called We’re All in This Together was unveiled on Facebook and Twitter early this morning. We headed to iTunes for the 30 second clip listen and bought it immediately..

A great guitar riff and piano notes start the song off to a great boppy intro, drums fill in, fill out the sound and into Sam singing with Dave Nugent on background vocals. By the time the song is into the first 45 seconds your toe will be tapping, and by the time the band joins Sam in the chorus you’ll be singing along, “We’re all in this together, so keep moving don’t stop, keep moving don’t stop.”

This tune is catchy as hell, typically Sam Roberts with deep lyrics about greed and sharing, has a brand new fresh feel to it while also feeling a little vintage 70’s perhaps.. and one can well imagine this being played not only on Rock radio but crossing over to stations like The Peak and other Indie/Pop stations.

The bridge of the song is great, “we are we are the angry apes, we don’t want to look at no empty plates……we are we are the first degree, we’re the thief, we’re the judge, we’re the jury, we are we are the angry apes shake the fruit from the vine till there’s nothing left now” with a multitude of voices joining gang vocals adding a new element to the melody of the song.

Other lyrics that stand out immediately, “…every night I free fall into a dream….. its a phenomenon that goes on and on…” The song ends with saxophone notes and the heavy guitar riffs into an echo that fades into nothingness. Love it.

This song, like all Sam Roberts songs is full of gems and depth. The listener has the option to dig deep into the lyrics with their own interpretation, or take the song on the surface and just groove… we can already picture this song live, with Sam dancing around the stage, his body on fire to the rhythm! Cant wait to hear this one live ourselves!

As well as a new tune today, which incidentally is going to be debuted tonight at 7pm EST on Hockey Night in Canada on TV! we found a teaser video announcing the new album, Lo-Fantasty! (with the intro to the new song!) Just posted on Sam Roberts Band’s site this morning!

 

We love it!
4/5

  2. […] Although the song starts out quite Pop sounding, it moves and shifts in and out of tempo and style with a very staccato drumming in the middle (courtesy of Josh Trager)  and the bass kicks it in as well (James Hall).. the bridge in the middle also serves to highlight Sam Robert’s vocals which often are ‘just part of the mix’. Rounding out the band are guitarist Dave Nugent and Eric Fares on keyboards. Give it a few listens and we guarantee it will grow on you as fast as SRB’s first single, We’re All In This Together!
