Since the release of the self-titled album, Kane Brown has become one of the hottest country artists that have quickly emerged with a loyal fanbase. He’s now using his platform to spread love all around, sharing a powerful message on equality and overcoming personal challenges with his sophomore LP Experiment.
The 25-year-old smooth baritone has remained close to his Georgian roots, which he details on his thriving relationship to the racism he’s faced for being a biracial artist in the country music community. The LP draws you in with each electrifying note, fiddle, strum of the guitar, and captivating bang on the drums.
Experiment is essentially a series of love letters to his wife, with only one song directed at the state of the country. Kane Brown has previously been vocal about the racism he’s faced for being biracial and not appearing as a typical country singer, but in “American Bad Dream” he sounds completely fed up. Most people can definitely agree with the chorus, “wake me up from this American bad dream / Is it this messed up? / Is it really reality? / I’m becoming numb to all of this tragedy,” as the country has gone through many changes in the past few years.
Brown has fully embraced sharing his wife with the world. First, through “What’s Mine Is Yours” and now the singles “Short Skirt Weather” and “Good As You,” which have garnered large adoring reactions. “Short Skirt Weather” has a groovy sound, uniquely sticking to a more fun sound with the use of the piano and concluding with a quick solo on the fiddle and drums. Throughout every song, each instrument shines against Brown’s gentle voice. The featureless full-length album leaves it all to his vocals and supporting instruments to fully draw you in.
