Single Review: “Wild At Heart” by Gloriana
It’s hard to tell where new group Gloriana is going to land in the spectrum of country music. They’ve been touring with Killie Pickler and Taylor Swift, yet they’re debut single is a rather mature and rather mature summer fun song that has the potential to put them in good company.
This quartet’s debut single “Wild At Heart” is an upbeat and well harmonized piece of country music gold in its own right. Filled with upbeat country musical composition and a tow tapping melody that is actually rather addicting, there is no reason to think that Gloriana don’t have what it takes to compete with the best of them. The song itself is a fun and upbeat summer love tune that takes full advantage of the band’s four part harmony, even letting former solo artist Cheyenne Nichole Kimball (one fourth of the group) steal a solo from the guys as it progresses.
There’s not much to criticize here. Although it tends to follow the typical feel and conception of what has become known as the conventional production for a country radio single, Gloriana’s debut effort is one to really look into. It’s entertaining, it’s well conceived as a group number, and it manages to hook the listener right in with an unmistakable beat and a great feel good quality to help hold it up. Only time will tell if Gloriana will be the next Little big Town, but “Wild At Heart” helps point them in the right direction.
Final Say: Favorable
