Barbadian outfit Cover Drive first rose to international prominence via their 2012 single ‘Twilight’. Though we didn’t hear too much about them here in Australia, ‘Twilight’ smashed the No.1 spot over in the UK; the band achieving further British chart success with their subsequent singles ‘Sparks’ (top five) and ‘Explode’ (top 30). Now they’re back with new single ‘Love Junkie’.
It’s an interesting proposition too; bizarrely the track feels at once familiar, but then super-fresh and new, albeit with that obligatory rap in the bridge to keep things interesting and commercial radio interested.
Yes, they might always be Barbados’ second biggest musical export, but there’s a lot to like about Cover Drive.
