FEATURED SONG: The All Ways – “Where I Belong”
A little more than four months ago I featured the All Ways as an “Under Cover” featured artist with their insane cover of “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. I wrote at the time:
The jury’s still out on whether they’ve got enough material of their own to be more than just a solid cover band. With a voice like that, Massirman and company need to find material worthy of the voice, and they could go places.
The time has come for that new material, and I’ve got to say I like the video for “Where I Belong,” which, while it’s a by the numbers pop-punk affair for the most part, does provide Austin Massirman with the platform to use his big voice to win over one viewer at a time, hopefully creating dedicated long-term fans in the process. The video, which you can watch below, has earned more than 1,000 views since they launched it yesterday. Lyrically cheesy, it’s the perfect pop song for those dreary days of winter when you just need something upbeat and snappy to keep you in the right frame of mind. For a full album they’ll want to try out a few more styles to see what sticks, but for an initial single this definitely has potential. Consider this critic won over.
