It’s a Saturday night and it is jut about time to put away the work and surrender to the fact that I am not getting any more work done tonight. Mikal Cronin’s new song, “Shout It Out,” is the perfect track to help me forget that the midterms I have been dreading all semester are only a week away and that that essay isn’t going to write itself. “Shout It Out” recently earned Cronin a spot on Spin’s top 5 new artists for the month of February and has been slowly catching the attention of annoying music bloggers such as myself since it’s release at the beginning of last month. The strumming acoustic guitar and pounding, driven beat make it easy to get swept away in the track’s simple melodies and upbeat tempo. Although “Shout It Out” rarely deviates from it’s major key, some minor chords are thrown into the mix, giving a slight tinge of nostalgia. Take a listen to “Shout It Out” below and have a great Saturday night.
