One of the best things about country music is the storytelling nature of the genre, some songs can just transport you back to some of your fondest memories or help you through some of the toughest moments of your life. It’s one of the best genres for doing this and MAMADEAR thrive at doing this in their story driven and honest lyrical track A Better Cigarette.
There’s a rustic feel to the track with this charming quality that makes you feel like you’re sitting down in a small town watching this band perform in the local bar. There’s also this simplicity in the production with earnest guitar picking, melancholy drum beats and gang vocal harmonies all coming together to produce something that, albeit small, has so much weight and power behind it. The highlight though is the lyrics, they narrate this story that really tugs at your heartstrings to make you feel this strong emotional connection that makes you become mesmerised by the beauty of the song.
