Cicada Rhythm (from the album Everywhere I Go available on New West Records)
Summer is here and the time is right for rolling down the car/van windows and hitting the highway as Cicada Rhythm suggest and prime the pump on “America’s Open Road”, the opening cut on their latest album release, Everywhere I Go. The beat is a blast of sunshine, and while the moods of the stories shift between longing (“Roses by My Side”) and reverie (“Dream Alone”) as the rhythms ride a snarling groove (“Do I Deserve It Yet?”) and kick up some Country dust (“Out Alive”), the harmony and melodies of Cicada Rhythm keep optimism and possibilities within reach.
Born and raised in Georgia, Cicada Rhythm found footing in the Indie dive bars of Atlanta and Athens, Georgia. Intricate playing and graceful delivery back the decision of Cicada Rhythm to modernize Folk music. Strings circle and weave through “Even in the Shallows” as the track grows from Folk Rock with an orchestrated swell while idyllic rhythms play a musical march as 1930’s-era Blues siren vocals sing a sad song with “As the Dogwood Dies”. Everywhere I Go sways gently as it lets the story of “Kaleidoscopic Rose” open to greet the world as Cicada Rhythm stomp and holler in “Shake Up” before waving goodbye to the album, exiting on the universal understanding of common goals found in “Back Home”.
