Aaron Frazer – If I Got It (Your Love Brought It)

Singing drummers, you gotta love โ€˜em. We all know Phil Collins, Don Henley and Sheila E., but thereโ€™s a new generation coming up. How about Georgia or Aaron Frazer? The latter is best known for his work behind the drum kit of Durand Jones & The Indications, where heโ€™s also second vocalist. And a very decent one, that is.

8 January 2021, his solo debut album will come out. Although you may know him already, itโ€™s modestly named Introducingโ€ฆ. Frazer recorded it with a little help from some friends. For starters, it was produced by Danย Auerbach. The album was recorded in a weeksโ€™ time at The Black Keys front manโ€™s Nashville studio. He called on a crew of heavy session players, including people who played onย Dusty Springfieldโ€™s Son Of A Preacher Man and Aretha Franklinโ€™s You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman, as well as the renowned Daptone Horns.

Following previous singles Bad News and Over You, If I Got It (Your Love Brought It) is the third single to be released off it. The trackโ€™s title was inspired by a 1950s lorry advertisement slogan: โ€˜If you got it, a truck brought itโ€™. Musically, it draws inspiration from โ€˜70s soul music. Within its first 30 seconds youโ€™ll have heard all of the songโ€™s trademark ingredients. A Wurlitzer piano, plucking bass, swinging percussion, a blend of brass instruments and Frazerโ€™s falsetto voice. What more do you need?

The track even ends with an old-school fade-out. Pretty unique, nowadaysโ€ฆ
