Review – The Reklaws

Album: Feels Like That
Release: August 31, 2018
Genre: Country

With summer coming to an end, it only made sense for Cambridge duo, The Reklaws, to release some feel-good tunes to remind you about those long, hot days. With their new country EP, Feels Like That, their songs bring you to the feeling of falling in love, remembering your hometown roots, heartbreak and what happens after the bar closes. With a collaboration from Ontario’s own  James Barker Band, their album is bound to have you moving and cheering with friends when these songs come on the radio.

The album starts with “Feels Like That”, a woman catching a man’s eye when she enters a room; the difference about this love song is the descriptive words used to describe this man’s feelings are so intense and strong that you can just understand how debilitated he is when she’s around. “Raised By The Radio” is the second song listed on the EP and reminds you how much of an impact music has on your life from such a young age. Music has a way to bring people together, family, friends, and strangers alike. It describes how in each major milestone there is always some song to relate to what you’re going through.

Towards the end, it takes a fun turn with songs like “Last Call” and “Wish You Were Beer”. “Last Call”, sung predominantly by Jenna Walker makes you bob your head and shake your hips to this sure-fire “girls night out” song. Discussing what happens when you meet someone and the bar is about to close, having those last few things before you leave. “Wish You Were Beer” brings in fellow Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists winners, James Barker Band to collaborate on the perfect end of summer tune to dance to at the bar and at your backyard barbeque.

My advice, head to Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music, whatever you use to listen to music and take a listen to each song off of Feels Like That. There is a song for every mood, every event and it will have you tapping your toes, bobbing your head and shaking your hips to the beat.
