No One Holds You (Closer Than The One You Haven’t Met)

Words by Jim Mumby

The Lemon Twigs can do no wrong with a back-catalogue of releases already stamped with ’quality assurance’. Having one platform boot firmly in Old Texan Saloon Bar music and another high-kicking into the belly of 80’s American guitar-charged rock, the D’Addario brothermen have a wide pond in which to fish for influences, and although the presence of those rock vanguards are evident, the results of their own avant-garde efforts are far from pastiche.

Perhaps not the most prolific in terms of music releases to-date, we arrive at the latest offering No One Holds You… (from the upcoming LP Songs for the General Public) – is a fantastical outpouring conveying the inevitable escape from a blinkered fleeting relationship to the hope springs eternal quest of finding the girl in his own imaginings. However cold-hearted the modus, there’s an underlying sentiment of joy and optimism wrapped around a resolute rock-beat and bright guitars that only momentarily slow at pre-chorus interludes for a brief look-back and a parting take care quip, before driving onwards again in hot pursuit!

Helped along with some melodious keyboard fun and the trademark psychedelic infusions, the D’Addario’s once again exemplify just how rapidly they have matured not just musically and instrumentally, but personally, with enough tenacity and control to reveal such laid-bare memoirs and confessions in their song writing.
