Davis and the Love is the project of frontman Nate Davis and producer Jordan Hawley. The long term friends sat down last year to listen to a few songs that Hawley was producing. The modern pop mixed with old school vibe sound interested Davis and they worked together to create their debut full-length album called ‘Future Retro Love Story’. Nate was searching for a different sound that incorporated his love for Motown and he found the sound he was looking for with Jordan. Working through 2019 and catching up with former band members who contributed their expertise, for example, guitar riffs, horns, and drums Future Retro Love Story was created.
‘Don’t Take It Away’ is their latest single that stood out from the crowd with its rather unique sound due to the mix of genres. The only way for you to understand the genre-crossing in this song is to listen to it! I love how catchy it is and the way it makes me happy listening to it. Their press release says “Soulful Feel-Good Music From Modern Pop Collective of Musicians And Producers” which I feel is an accurate way of describing the sound. Nate’s vocals are incredible! As well as a great sound they are storytelling vocals that get the meaning of the song across to the listener. ‘Don’t Take It Away’ explores the instant chemistry with someone you just met and is an ode to how great love it. Fitting nicely into the album in the middle to change the mood of the album from the complications of love to celebratory of love. Clever! Take a listen to this super contagious song here.
