Wyatt Blair “Boys Night Out”

From the first guitar arpeggio of Wyatt Blair‘s new single, “Boys Night Out,” you might think “what is this R.E.M. rip off?” It isn’t until the vocals hit and you realize Blair isn’t aping Michael Stipe that your mind is eased a bit. The track’s hard rocking chorus is what really puts daylight in between “Boys Night Out” and something off of Reckoning but for at least a while, it feels really touch and go.
