The Wild Feathers – “Big Sky” – Single Review

The Wild Feathers are back with a new single, “Big Sky”, and a new album coming on June 29th titled, ‘Greeting From the Neon Frontier’.  If you are not familiar with them, they are a cross between southern rock, country, folk and what ever label you want to lay on them.  For me, their songs are a country rock blend that harkens back to the 70’s and this one is exactly that and more.

The song kicks off with some harmonies that take you immediately to sound of The Eagles and it has guitar playing that would fit perfectly in that era with an Allman Brothers feel.  What you get is the feeling of the great outdoors and that you are driving down some Montana road with the top down and the wind in your hair, the radio blasting and you are in paradise looking at the mountains, the forests and whatever other scenery is around.

It also feels like a campfire song, so pop up a tent, start a campfire, grab the s’mores, pull out that old guitar and sing along.  The Wild Feathers never disappoint and I am hoping this is a good sign of things to come.

“Big Sky”

Free as a highway
Wild as the wind
I can hear her callin’ my name
Callin’ me home again

Wide open spaces
Cool mountain breezes
Reachin’ down to save my soul
Take these city blues away
The closest thing to heaven that you’ll find
Headin’ for the big sky

Won’t you come with me
We’ll find a reason
Reason to believe again
There’s still a paradise
The closest thing to heaven that you’ll find
Headin’ for the big sky

It seems like all we do is talk
Bout the lives people walk away from
Let’s pack the car and leave tonight
Drive until the city lights fade, fade, fade
Let ’em fade away

Wide open spaces
Cool mountain breezes
Reachin’ down to save my soul
Take these city blues away
The closest thing to heaven that you’ll find
Headin’ for the big sky
The closest thing to heaven that you’ll find

Big sky
Big sky
Big sky
