article imageReview: American Authors captivate on 'Luck' single Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 4, 2014 in Music
Brooklyn - American Authors captivate on their upbeat rock single "Luck." It was released in Canada in mid-March, and it is one of the highlights on their album.
American Authors co-wrote this tune with their producers, Aaron Accetta and Shep Goodman.
They played this show at their live concert at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York, and the audience instantly fell in love with it due to its exceptional instrumentals, catchy beats and melody. At that show, they served as the opening act for acclaimed rock groups The Script and OneRepublic, all of which were phenomenal live.
"Luck" begins with an infectious guitar that has an 80s retro vibe to it, and an even more addicting percussion. In the song, the male narrator makes his apologies to his brother, mother and father for leaving town, but he takes a firm stance and acknowledges that he is his "own man" that makes his "own luck."
"Gonna pick myself up, so I don't let this ever grow, Even if I mess up, I won't let this ever go, It's hard to stay, It's hard to stay, Cause some birds aren't meant to be caged," lead singer Zac Barnett sings.
The Verdict
Overall, American Authors rock on "Luck." They nail the vocals and their song is well-crafted all around. I would love to see it released as a single in the United States. It is far superior than the majority of the pop-rock songs on the radio airwaves. They deserve to be the next Imagine Dragons or Blink 182. "Luck" garners an A rating.
The Brooklyn-based rock band is comprised of Zac Barnett on lead vocals and guitar, James Adam Shelley on lead guitar and banjo, bassist Dave Rublin and drummer Matt Sanchez.
Their debut album, Oh, What A Life, which features their smash single "Best Day of My Life," can be downloaded on iTunes by clicking here.
