For My Sunday Song #167, we are playing “Don’t Bring That Trouble” by the band Needtobreathe. The song is off their 2016 album ‘Hard Love’ which saw the band’s sound change a little adding a little more dance/pop elements without losing that signature Needtobreathe feel.
“Don’t Bring That Trouble” is the most rocking track on the record. It has a great guitar riff opening and sound. The drum beats come banging in and though not real drums, the electronic beats pick up the pace of the song and drive in to a more rocking track than the rest of the album. There is even a southern rock/country vibe thrown in with it as well. Overall, it is pure fun and enjoyment and sometimes you need to let loose and let it fly and this does that.
Lyrically, there is not much substance like a lot of their songs I have featured. The song is basically talking about how he is broken and he is trying to fix his life and problems and if you are coming along for the ride, don’t bring any trouble as he doesn’t want to deal with that anymore. For me, it doesn’t matter as I want to crank it up and dance a little. Sometimes, lack of substance is fine with me!!!
