Chris Lane – Fix Review
Have you guys heard of Chris Lane? I surely haven’t have, until recently his name came out in the summer of 2014 when he released a single called “Broken Windshield View”. It’s a disappointment that we are going through such a terrible phase of country music already and to face pop along with it is a nightmare. Until recently, the artist dished out his latest single Fix. Coming from his latest EP of the same name.
The single saw release on October 30, 2015 under Big Loud Records. It was available for digital download almost immediately. The song was originally written for the co-writer’s Abe Stoklasa’s band but after agreeing upon modifications by the writers and the manager of big loud, that it be kept as flagship song for Lane’s upcoming EP.
On the charts the single saw moderate success, barely entering the US Billboard Hot 100 at no 76. The single has jumped quite a few places since its debut. Getting momentum somewhere on the ladder of listeners. Despite the country pop horror, the song has reached to No.6 on the US Country airplay chart.
Chris Lane’s fix is a complete pop doomsday with absolutely no elements of country. Beginning with some finger claps, and a dance beat that continuous with a bunch of childish high pitched vocals of Lane, which is not only annoying but also lack clarity.
Having an intro with “Hey Girl” and clueless Lane going on to talk about a girl who sees is somehow not spending time with him, but he is persistent to let her know that he is the ideal ‘fix’ for her in some manner as to how. The song goes onto the bridge, which could have been made better. It’s quite cheesy, and bland in regards to the rest of the song.
The chorus however is cheerful and enlightening. That’s where the heart of it lies, it could have been kept simpler lyrical wise. The song is good but it doesn’t feel right that country radio have to resort to different hybrid genres to spark up the listener interest.
There is just too much going on, same energy a little slowed down with mature lyrics could help the song by leaps and bounds. Let’s see how Lanes goes about fixing his songs than the girls in his song, all without before disappearing again for a while.
