The latest single from Margo Price is fairly hard to define. "Been to the Mountain" continues her move away from pure country into a more rock based sound. Her love of Tom Petty has been showing lately, and there is definitely some Petty in this one. But, "Been to the Mountain" has a lot more pop in it than you'd get with a Petty song. It's not quite a dance song, but there are some pretty strong dance elements here. Price has constructed this unique yet familiar groovy and funky rock song tinged with country and pop. If you had told me a few years back that I'd be psyched about Margo Price expanding her sound out of country, I never would have believed it, but "Been to the Mountain" is a thrilling expansion of her sonic repertoire!
