New Single Review: Rob Larkin & The Wayward Ones - "Long Time Gone"

Rob Larkin & The Wayward Ones are out with a new single, “Long Time Gone”, a track from their upcoming album, Lights Are Burning. The Wayward Ones are a fresh and sultry blues rock band, featuring many influences such as 70’s funk, soul, and Americana. Their sound is best described as warm and down home- it makes one feel like they’re experiencing

Larkin’s voice is smooth and nice to listen to. It has all the character you’d want from a band like this. He certainly doesn’t disappoint and displays his talent well. The guitar work is brilliant and I love the layered instrumentals throughout the song. That is my favorite part of bluesy music that gives it a unique spark, one that can’t be found or easily replicated to have the same smooth yet jagged sound. It’s something entirely catered to the sound, and Larkin makes beautiful work of it.

I could listen to the guitar work forever. It is steadily perfect and has just as much as character as Larkin’s voice. It is beautiful and leaves you swaying along with the music. The solos are fun to listen to and have an earthy quality that gives “Long Time Gone” a down and dirty feeling. It’s solid instrumentally throughout the entire track and is definitely worth listening to several times to fully appreciate all of the varying components.

The lyrics aren’t anything special, but they’re certainly enjoyable. It’s admittedly generic at times, but with songs like this, you’re more there for the music and the sound of the vocals, as opposed to relying heavily on lyrics. With all of that being said, they’re not bad by any means! They’re fun and, were it not for the sound being so strong, it might even be considered whimsical. There’s more struggles in getting away from the singer’s predicament, but he’s still settled on disappearing. It’s relatable in a way that you may not specifically understand, but it will still feel like a fantasy, if nothing else.

It isn’t so much that there’s a sense of danger in the song, but it does leave you feeling like you want to go on a very specific kind of adventure. Living in the south, I have a yearning to get into some trouble and escape through back roads, going by moonlight and intuition alone. It’s a very vision-based song that gives you plenty to think about. This genre has influenced a number of shows, movies, and other media, so you may lean towards that. The potential is limitless and that is what makes this song great inspiration fuel. I’ll be sure to add this to a writing playlist to get the ideas flowing.

“Long Time Gone” is a great song with a fantastic sound that Rob Larin & The Wayward Ones have done a wonderful job with. I look forward to listening to their full album once it’s released, as their sound is something I can’t get enough of. If you like gritty, soulful rock and roll, this is exactly what the doctor ordered.
