Almost Monday: "Take Me Higher"
“Take Me Higher” is an infectiously catchy song that you’ll like more and more every time you hear it. It opens with a dancey and slightly funky synth and guitar line, before bassist and vocalist, Dawson Daugherty, smoothly delivers his unique vocals. Daugherty lets out effortless high notes with a bluesy twinge, like a cross between LANY and Kaleo, while the song is held together by it’s synth riffs and drum fills. The instrumentation grows over time, culminating in a danceable track that also features a crisp and dreamy guitar solo. The song ends with a final repeat of it’s catchy chorus, and a energetic and intense guitar riff to top it off.
Overall, this is a joyful and well put together single, a fun and infectious track that makes you want to snap along to the beat and dance your heart out. Almost Monday does a great job of keeping the energy up for the whole song, with well placed bass lines and instrumental breaks. In my opinion, the future looks promising for these four, and I can’t wait to see what’s next in their career.
