It’s a pretty difficult feat in modern times to be able to pull off the throwback//effortlessly cool rock troubadour persona. For every one that rises up with that particular vibe, scores more languish in townie bars ripping the same classic rock covers.
With his first two singles serving as early indicators, Songwriter Ian Bern appears to occupy the aforementioned rarified space. His latest effort, “It’s Not You,” is a punchy piece of blues-jangle-pop-rock savvy, upping the ante a bit from the debut cut, “Enough.”
For fans of The War On Drugs and/or Spoon, give Ian Bern’s “It’s Not You” a whirl below and order the double a-side 7″ here via B3SCI Records.
