Banditos - "On My Way"

It's been a long, long time since we've last heard from Banditos. The Birmingham/Nashville sextet released their last album, Visionland, back in 2017, but five years feels like roughly a dozen nowadays. Thankfully, they are back with a new single! "On My Way" is a great welcome back for Banditos. It has that soulful Americana/roots sound that we've come to expect and love from them. It's upbeat country rock with horns that is endlessly catchy. Plus, it's sung by Mary Beth Richardson, and we've missed her vocals so much. Richardson could be singing anything in any style, and you'd be captivated.

In a press release, Banditos talk about their new single:

"'On My Way' is about trying to stay positive when it seems as though everything is falling apart. It's about staying true to yourself even if it seems like the odds are against you. It's about trying to make a living doing what you love. It's about blindly clinging to the only things that bring you light in the dark times of life. Follow your dreams, kids."

You can listen to "On My Way" below. The song is now available as a single via Egghunt Records and is available for download on Bandcamp. For more on Banditos, check out the band's website.
