Artist: Quinn Devlin & The Bridge Street Kings
Song: Answer Me
Label: Bridge Street Records
Channeling vintage Bruce Springsteen, Quinn Devlin & the Bridge Street Kings write a rollicking type of blue-eyed soul that would have easily fit in on the Jersey Shore in the 70’s as well as it does now. Formed in 2013 while frontman Quinn Devlin was at Columbia University, the group spent a couple years honing their sound from folk into a full, horn-infused soul rock.
Latest single “Answer Me” is an uptempo clapper that sounds like Elvis Costello in his punkier heyday. An anthem for confused youth, Devlin sings out “Answer me, what it means to be free” like a 22 year old left to his own devices without a clue of what to do with himself. A place we’ve all been, making it a song we can all relate to.
