OSMR: Old Southern Moonshine Revival. Get used to that acronym, because you’re going to be seeing a lot of it real soon!
The country/southern rock band from North Carolina, fronted by Marcus Kiser, finally started to get some well deserved recognition with their single “Waste Another Beer,” which recently peeked at #11 on Sirius XM The Highway’s Hot 45 Countdown. Now, OSMR is cranking out another single that is sure to get stuck in your head!
“Brand New Song” is one of the catchiest songs I’ve heard in a while and is sure to have you singing along in the shower, in the car, or at work. I’ve already been guilty of all of these! “I hope listeners love the song… But that’s probably true of every song anyone ever writes,” said Kiser. “I think for the ones that do love it, I hope it puts a good time feeling in their mind.”
“Hey now everybody get your hands up” – the song starts with a vocal-only line that grabs your attention and immediately hooks you with a catchy guitar and clap beat. The song is fresh, upbeat, and catchy and keeps the country/southern rock feel the band is known for. The song has a melody that flows so effortlessly, it’ll have you humming along after the first listen.
The song, about people excited to go see the band who sings the “Brand new song on the radio,” will have you singing Na Na’s and Woah’s for the rest of the day. “I hope that this single will be the one that creates more mass awareness of the band,” Kiser said when asked what he hopes this song will do for the band. “Being as it is very catchy with the whoas and na nas, even the people who don’t like it will still know it.”
We love where we are and the growth we are experiencing, it’s all pretty exciting right now.
When I hear “Brand New Song,” I’m immediately taken to the front row of a concert with my best friends and a drink in my hand. I know I’m getting the right vibe from the song when I get to the line that goes “She’s all about girls night out on a Saturday night…” It’s definitely a feel-good song and for 3 minutes and 25 seconds, I’m lost in my own little concert in my head. (I may even break out an air-drum solo on my steering wheel!)
The guys of Old Southern Moonshine Revival are some of the most humble musicians I’ve ever met and they are deservedly gaining momentum and getting some incredible exposure. “I think the band is in uncharted territory right now. There’s always that drive to go to the next level. I feel like we are really pushing towards that,” Marcus said about the crazy whirlwind the band is experiencing right now. “We love where we are and the growth we are experiencing, it’s all pretty exciting right now. But we still have a long way to go. We are just trying to get better as song writers and musicians.”
Old Southern Moonshine Revival played at the Adelphia Music Hall in Marietta, Ohio earlier this year. The guys of OSMR put on a great show that was very high energy and full of impressive original content, amazing covers, and a little touch of humor.
