Chris Butler creates his own brand of 1960-infused rock. Dreamy vocals and contemplative guitar riffs paint a solid picture while Butler’s vocals add fine detail to the composition. With a lead-in to the chorus built upon the tradition of Van Morrison and The Who, Summer Money sails away with contemplative arrangements. The extended instrumental interlude separates the two sections of the track, keeping the song’s energy high while showcasing some fascinating guitar / drum dynamics. The track is timeless, Butler’s voice is just right for the arrangement, and the resulting single shines brightly.
