On Liz Kennedy’s Hike Up Your Socks, a tremendously unique musical style issues forth. There are hints of mid-1990s alternative that play in the background alongside early 1980s rock. With a dominant set of vocals playing out over the track, fans will be able to follow the free-form storytelling mode of Kennedy. We really hear a mash-up of Karen Carpenter and Warren Zevon from Kennedy here. The musicianship of Hike Up Your Socks is fantastic; one will be able to play the track multiple times to hear additional nuance with each subsequent listen. Touching, fun, and miles away from the pop fare garnering airplay today, Hike Up Your Socks is a welcome change of pace.
We’ve covered Everyone Knows How It Goes.
