OSMR “Sweet Life” EP Review

With a perfect mix of traditional, pop and rock country, OSMR’s newest EP “Sweet Life” will satisfy all of your country cravings. Six tracks make up this body of music and each song truly has its own personality and story.

“Lookin’ at You” kicks us off with a vibrant melody and memorable chorus. Just one song in and we can already anticipate that this EP will stay with us long after it’s through.

“Lovin Lovin

Living that sweet life

Ain’t got nothing, nothing but a good time 

Lit up a July Christmas tree

Sure sounds pretty damn good to me”

Living the “Sweet Life” sounds good to everyone, especially surrounded by 3 minutes and 12 seconds of laid back vibes, and feel good lyrics. 

A bold intro starts off “Back Pocket” soon followed by an unexpected playful and flirtatious tone which prevails in this lighthearted love song.

 

“Book of Waylon” is a song that deserves your undivided attention. It is a beautiful dedication to country music, the power it holds and the lessons learned. The simple yet upbeat tempo keeps the message at the forefront, with the mood remaining bright and uplifting throughout. It is the type of song that sends a wave of emotions right through you, and you appreciate every second of it.

“I never learned every verse in the bible

I was more a 3 chord disciple

Spinning both sides of that vinyl, over and over all night long.

I got lost in an old turn table

Ready and willing, cocaine and able,

Baptized in the black label, but I found redemption in her and them songs”

The fun returns with “Pontiac”, a song that sits comfortably between the styles of Eric Church and Frankie Ballard, and “Hey Little Miss Rock ‘N’ Roll” is a perfect way to close to this EP. A rebel story with an innocent touch. Little miss rock and roll is a dreamer, and music is her escape. I sense a deeper meaning for this piece through the tone in which it’s sung.

“She got her hands in the sky like a lighter in the air, every song is a ticket to anywhere”

OSMR delivers us a record that will invest you from start to finish. It is evident that they do not just sing the words, they believe in them, which makes it all the easier for us as fans to connect with and listen.

There was no specific event that made me fall in love with country music, it was simply the style that hit me the hardest. I’ve been involved with music from a young age and it has helped get to where I am today. I graduated Albright College with a degree in Music Business and currently work in New York City with Music Licensing. When I’m not working with music, you can find me listening to it, watching it, or playing it. I consider myself lucky when I look back at the various concerts I’ve attended, from classics such as Brooks & Dunn and George Strait, to the incredible new talents of Eric Church and The Band Perry. It only makes me want more. Music is something I can always count on and I’m excited to have the opportunity to share this love with all of you!
