Anana Kaye’s “American Smile” open slowly with little more than Anana’s vocals and a soft guitar line. The drums follow up shortly after, and as the single continues to play, Kaye is able to gradually shift to a richer, modern interpretation of Americana/folk styles. Hints of Stevie Nicks and Cyndi Lauper can be heard here. Fans will need to play American Smile multiple times before hearing every twist and turns presented here. For example, the instrumental arrangement is much deeper than a passing listen would indicate. A hard-hitting track, this narrative is something thoughtful and showcases a good step forward for Anana Kaye.
