This St. Patrick’s Day, there’s more to look forward to than a whole lotta beer, corned beef, and green-tinged festivities.
With their roots-rock driven new single dropping Friday, Ryan Hahn & The Believers will make you feel like “wherever you go, it’s alright.”
The aptly titled “Alright” is their latest jaunty tune that feels like taking a sunlit stroll, with lyrics that transport the listener to a place where things will all be okay, which is a sentiment that never wears out its welcome, especially these days.
Foremost in the single is Hahn’s unapologetically positive philosophy of “keep[ing] the scale always slightly balanced toward positivity.” It’s a song about being with the person who makes you feel safest, the one you love most. In a world that’s ever-changing and full of darkness, Hahn reminds us that everything eventually evens out if we just keep keepin’ on. In a recent Instagram post, he says, “If you’re still alive and kickin, then things are going Alright.”
With striking electric guitar, groove-driving tambourine, and harmonica flare, the song’s Americana roots mesh seamlessly with hints of rock n’ roll. Hahn’s vocals create a magnetic energy that pulsates with each beat of the song, drawing listeners in with his inviting tone of voice and uplifting chorus that’s bound to be stuck in your head.
For Ryan Hahn and his band, From the Country to the Concrete is more than just the title of their upcoming album. Originally from Kentucky, the group boasts country roots that they’ve since packed up and moved to Los Angeles. However, as they say, you can take a man out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the man, which is where those Americana sounds come into play.
Regarding the track, Hahn states, “This song is a sort of motto that helps keeps me focused on the good things in my life and not to spend time dwelling on my perceived failures, or the bad things going on in the world around me. Things may not always be ‘Amazing’, but if we can do that, then I think we can always at least be ‘alright.’”
Having written and performed for years, Hahn and his Believers have played alongside acts such as Charley Crockett, Billy Bob Thornton, and Robby Krieger to name a few.
If there’s one thing that pairs well with the atmosphere of a St. Paddy’s Day party, it’s feel-good upbeat music, and Ryan Hahn and The Believers deliver that with “Alright.” So put the digital needle down, add it to your playlists, and live your best life this holiday weekend knowing things will be “alright.”
From the Country to the Concrete is slated for a May 19th release, so keep an ear to the ground for that.
