Relax, kick your feet up, and enjoy the summer sun. After such a long year, everyone needs a breather, and Headrush’s newest single, “Reckless”, offers just that.
With a shimmering guitar and laidback vocal energy, “Reckless” is a perfect summer vibe song. Add that to the slowly building energy and this song was built for rolling down your windows and blaring it until the speakers bust.
The bouncing groove pulling the harmony along begs you to sing along with the melody. “We’re reckless and we don’t care.” It’s a declaration of letting go of the pressures, expectations, and deadlines that have held us down.
“I’m about to throw in my two weeks,” Jack Warren declares. “Trust me, everything will turn out just fine,” he later tells us. The hopeful, optimistic take on our future is a welcome reprieve. By the time the bridge changes keys at 2:00, the positive energy is so contagious you can feel your shoulders lose tension.
So grab some friends, turn up the volume, and enjoy the reckless moments of summer with Headrush.
