Never Gonna Lay Down
A profound resume greets us as Tim McGeary embarks on his long-awaited solo career. Having been on tour with classic bands such as Simple Minds, The Cure, Duran Duran, Billy Idol and Roxy Music, Tim McGeary surely has enough experience and glitter to make a massive impact all by himself. Some of his previous work has made it on to TV such as Smallville with his most recent single enjoying global radio play. Never Gonna Lay Down is written to admire Ukraine's brave self-determination and lets us know that the adventure, for Tim, has only just begun.
A brilliant dynamic groove spans out as the song begins. Guitar and bass thrum to harmonic passages as the snare-driven drumming sloshes with a liquid feel. Tim McGeary sings, we hear his voice begin a rock song, punchy lines with a tinge of Brian Adams and Stiltskin fuels the energy of upbeat inflection. Verse merges to chorus and it punches with a clarity and energy that grabs the attention. Rolling toms and thumping bass frame a thrashing guitar section. After a few of these progressions, the music breaks free into an instrumental and uplifting spectacle. Closing with yet one more chorus, we just love this back-to-basics pure rock single.
