Chris Beer has appeared on these pages before. We first heard from him in July of last year upon the release of his single “Anytime Soon.” That track introduced us to a skilled songwriter who is able to deliver thoughtful, meaningful messages and package them in catchy and engaging Pop songs. With a keen sense of melody, a knack for storytelling and a broad multi-genre instrumental palette, the Austrian singer/songwriter creates smart, universally relatable songs.
“Gimme That Feeling” is the latest single and video from Chris Beer, released worldwide to all major streaming services on April 23, 2021. For this new track Beer rides the uplifting vibes of a chill Reggae rhythm to inject a bit of much needed positivity into a weary world. The track is built on a cool mix of electronic and organic instrumentation. A guitar and organ backbeat island groove rolls on a funky Reggae bass line. Chris sings a simple song of love, nature and appreciating the Zen of the moment.
It’s a great sound with a perfect mix of modern Indie-Pop hooks and classic Jamaican vibes. Various live and electronic drums bat around syncopated rhythms and sub-rhythms throughout the tune. There are some very nice Wailers-style background vocals in the chorus. And Beer even introduces a handful of well-placed Ska horn blasts. It feels like summer, and it is exactly the dose of sunshine we all need right now.
How important it is to perceive and appreciate the moments and feelings that make us truly feel alive.Chris Beer
