While there is definite appeal in the soaring 30+ minute prog-rock epics and experimental jazz pieces in 15/8 time, sometimes all you need is some old-fashioned, straightforward, down-and-dirty rock and roll. If you need to be happy is an overdriven guitar and heavy tuned dripping with the blues, then Courtesy Tier's
newest single, "Mila Says", will most certainly do the trick. The rockin' blues tune clocks in just shy of 3 minutes and is loaded with amp-busting guitars, a swaggering drumbeat, and emotionally tense lyrics about a girl that puts up with her man's flaws and loves him all the same.
Courtesy Tier's members come from pretty different backgrounds, with guitarist/vocalist Omer Leibovitz growing up in Israel and West Africa, drummer Layton Weedman hailing from the Philadelphia suburbs, and bassist Alex Picca from the South, but the three found a strong connection thanks to their collective love for blues and garage rock. The result is an explosive sound on all their tracks, making the trio easily sound more than twice their size at high-energy, intense live shows. If you've been on the hunt for a new drop, free of any frills and pop-sugar coatings, then "Mila Says" will fuel your day with a hard hitting dose of blues-rock goodness.
