Blending Pop's Brightness, Rock's Punch, and Country's Heart, 'At My Age' Crafts an Unforgettable Melodic Story
‘At My Age’ is a single from Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections that plays into pop, rock, country and folk stylings in turn, to pump out a track that you will never get out of your head. It’s bright from the pop influence, guitars and melodies sweeping left and right. It’s got a punch from the rock vibes, the guitars turn and bite, they’ve got gain on their side and the vocals can really belt it when they need to. The country and folk add some flavour to the textures, there’s some bittersweet, there’s a story being told, and there’s a whole lot of love. A single that will make you smile as you remember some special someone.
The track is bountiful, and by that I mean full of every little musical pleasure you can think of. There are spots where harmonies send you up into the clouds, there are points where the melody grounds you and you feel your feet moving to its rhythms. Each instrument has its own distinct voice, each is played with character and so much flavour. The vocals sit in the centre. Loud, proud, and they deserve to be. In the verses, they keep us hooked with lyrics that flow like wine, and a performance that reaches for the stars. In the chorus, the gates fly open as the true sound of ‘At My Age’ charges full steam ahead.
Packing this much influence and style into a song can lead to confusion. Unless it is done with a deft hand and gifted ears … which Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections have by the bucket load. The single is tight, formed by masterfully confident hands and brings us through the story, and the beats, with a firm yet gentle grip. ‘At My Age’ is a song that makes you swoon, it makes you laugh, and it makes your heart ache. Most of all it makes you realise once again why indie music is great. Because it sews human stories and emotions into accessible tracks that take your breath away. Stunning.
