It's no surprise, but the latest from Kurt Baker is just pure garage rock throwback bliss. "She Don't Wanna Be Alone" is a 60's garage rock power ballad that just sounds like it was plucked from an obscure compilation from that decade. The song is heavily inspired by The Beatles, which is very obvious once you listen, but I'm hearing a resemblance to fictional band The One-ders from That Thing You Do! It's a fun little song that is instantly infectious and perfect for fans of oldies and vintage garage rock.
Kurt Baker says of his new single:
“'She Don’t Wanna Be Alone' is a song that I think a lot of my old school fans will enjoy. John Lennon & the Beatles being a big influence. Wyatt and I co-wrote this song and it was one of those collaborations when everything just comes together so quickly! We threw a Mellotron as another nod to the Beatles - but I also I love how it sounds on 'Go Let It Out' by Oasis, which probably was most definitely influenced by the Beatles. Basically, let’s face it, the Beatles are the greatest band in the world and 'Rock N Roll Club' is my greatest record yet so boom goes the dynamite!"
