SLYDER TURNS ON THE CHARM
Last Great Dreamers guitarist SLYDER SMITH has issued a first single from his new solo album.
‘When The Rain Comes’ is taken from the album Charm Offensive, which is due out on 19 August through Ray Records.
“’When The Rain Comes’ is prime-time radio, a summer road movie soundtrack, a highly melodic, charming, and commercial pop song,” says Smith. “With its solid rock foundation, jangly rhythm guitars, and an assured vocal delivery, this upbeat, catchy earworm’s melodic lead guitar hook lines and singalong choruses will be in your head for days; scratch the surface though and you’ll find there is a darkness there too. ‘When The Rain Comes’ has this year’s summer hit written all over it!”
