Songs You Need To Hear: Girls Guns and Glory, “Baby’s Got A Dream”

Written by August 31st, 2011 at 10:51 am

A friend once described Girls Guns and Glory to us as “four handsome fellas out of Boston with a Dwight Yoakam meets Roy Orbison, Americana-ish kind of sound.” We won’t comment on the first part, but the rest of the description is dead on. Plus, in an age of stupid band names, it’s nice to see that someone actually got it right.

The instrument-swapping roots rock outfit have an interesting pedigree; they hold the honor of being named Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards (yes, there is such a thing), and they’ve been named the Boston Phoenix Awards’ Roots Act of Year and the Boston Music Awards’ Americana Act of the Year twice.

Take a listen to Girls Guns and Glory’s “Baby’s Got A Dream,” from their brand new album, Sweet Nothings below, and see what all the hype is about.
