SONG PICK: Mighty Oaks – Mexico (Video)
Berlin-based folk-pop trio Mighty Oaks released the pleasantly catchy “Mexico,” announcing their upcoming equally titled 4th studio album. Mighty Oaks’ easy appeal might stem from the fact that all three band members sing and play various string instruments but their backgrounds’ roots might influence their musical style as well, being comprised of three friends who hail from America, Italy, and the U.K. The three-piece consists of Ian Hooper (USA), Claudio Donzelli (Italy), and Craig Saunders.
About their new single and their upcoming album Mighty Oaks says:
2020 brought out the best in some, and the worst in others. People across America (and across the world for that matter) stockpiled guns and ammunition, threw punches over toilet paper, pushed racist bigots and ideologies in politics, and put a “me first” attitude on full display. While we firmly believe that turning away from problems does not at all help to get at the root of solving them, this song is a sort of mental escape when things heavy.
The single is beautifully comforting and an instant classic! We could listen to the upcoming album already and love it, twelve catchy folk-pop songs, with heart and meaning. It’s easy to simply get lost in the gorgeous melodies or also listen closely to the intelligent lyricism. Mark your calendars for May 7th and get a taste by listening to “Mexico,” our Song Pick of the Day. Watch the video, which with its feel-good goofy sunshine feel might put a big smile on your face:
