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

Singing drummers, you gotta love ‘em. We all know Phil Collins, Don Henley and Sheila E., but there’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 he’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, it’s modestly named Introducing…. Frazer recorded it with a little help from some friends. For starters, it was produced by Dan Auerbach. The album was recorded in a weeks’ time at The Black Keys front man’s Nashville studio. He called on a crew of heavy session players, including people who played on Dusty Springfield’s Son Of A Preacher Man and Aretha Franklin’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 track’s title was inspired by a 1950s lorry advertisement slogan: ‘If you got it, a truck brought it’. Musically, it draws inspiration from ‘70s soul music. Within its first 30 seconds you’ll have heard all of the song’s trademark ingredients. A Wurlitzer piano, plucking bass, swinging percussion, a blend of brass instruments and Frazer’s falsetto voice. What more do you need?

The track even ends with an old-school fade-out. Pretty unique, nowadays…
