Rock group The Pretty Reckless is back stronger than ever with their new single "Back to the River," where they collaborate with guitar virtuoso Warren Haynes.
It begins as a soothing acoustic ballad, featuring Taylor Momsen's spitfire vocals, and it builds up into a mid-tempo rock tune. Warren Haynes nails the lead guitar, and proves to be one true musical genius. Momsen co-wrote this track with guitar player Ben Phillips. It is a track on their Who You Selling For album, which was released via Razor & Tie.
"There's blue skies all around me, and the world looks just the same, it's hard to be criminal, when you all know my name," Momsen sings in the opening verse. "Sometimes I wonder, sometimes I wanna be free, well, you can be king of me, and I'll be the queen," she continues singing.
Aside from Momsen on lead vocals and Ben Phillips on guitar, The Pretty Reckless is made up Mark Damon on bass, as well as Jamie Perkins on drums.
The Verdict
Overall, The Pretty Reckless does a solid job on their latest single "Back to the River." It has a retro and bluesy vibe to it, which showcases the band's wide range as a group. "Back to the River" garners an A rating.
"Back to the River" is available on iTunes.
