They say that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But occasionally, you can judge an album by its title. Anything called Good Vibes, unless we are being set up for a fall, tells us a lot about what to expect. And, indeed, Good Vibes is the perfect title for the music found here.
Kicking off with the excellently named Cruisin’ For a Groovin’, Patrick & Daniel launch into a deft blend of bluesy grooves, funky moves, soulful guitar licks, and heavenly harmonies.
Sometimes they lean into more bluesy sonic waters with songs like It’s Hard To Leave The Love of Your Life, funky realms with I’m Allowed to Dream and even gorgeous, emotive balladry with Somebody. And then there is a title track with it’s Latin vibes and light and lithesome musical structures.
Patrick & Daniels can turn their hand to all manner of sounds and styles, and as they do so, they weave their signature sound through whichever genre they are exploring.
Excellent music and expertly done.
