Big Sexy - "Raw Masculinity"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

The Resounding Resurgence of Rock 'n' Roll

Riding high on the triumphant waves of their immersive album, "River of Shame," Big Sexy graces us at Music Farmer 5 yet again with their fresh, powerful new single, "Raw Masculinity". The song embodies everything awesome about rock 'n' roll...and more!


"Raw Masculinity" launches at full-speed with an electrifying guitar riff that truly embodies classic rock, fueled by a thunderous drum hook that echoes in your psyche. The pounding of the toms leads the rhythm, setting a pulsating tempo for this audacious, heart-stirring anthem.


As we journey into the verse, we're met with a vocally nimble performance that draws parallels with titans like Paul Simon and Sting. The vocals soar through the heavens yet also feel deeply grounded, reflecting the song's candid emotional narrative. This is followed by a surge of vocal harmonization, seemingly a nuanced throwback to the ingenious vocal blend of the wildly popular band early 2000's band "Fountains of Wayne," that hits the senses with an unexpected yet deeply satisfying jolt of energy.


Big Sexy's "Raw Masculinity" evolves with a sprawling, intense guitar solo - a symbiosis of The Eagles' melodious intricacies intertwined with the raw ferocity of Van Halen, a shining example of Big Sexy's staggering musical prowess. The finale of the track brings us full circle to the opening guitar/drum hook, leaving an enduring echo of the raw, magnetic energy the track began with.


Peeling back the layers of "Raw Masculinity," we unearth a narrative imbued with raw longing - a man grappling with his insecurities, pinning his hopes on an ex-lover returning to him from the arms of her wealthy suitor. This genuine storyline adds a layer of emotional complexity, rendering this rock anthem a heartfelt ballad.
