Single Review: High Valley – Single Man

High Valley seem out to subtly subvert expectations. Starting out sounding like standard U.S. country bros, they’re actually Canadian Mennonites. The rich voices propelled by a snap track turn out to also be backed by a banjo. Another nod to the more traditional side of country music shines through the lyrics. Despite first impressions, it’s about committed good loving, not drinking and womanising.

It ends up as a foot-stomping bluegrass dance track. It’s an ode to love and life, stressing that the grass is not greener on the other side if it means giving up love: “I don’t know a single man/that ain’t out looking for what I’ve got.”
