We love cosmic country here at If It's Too Loud..., and this appears to be shaping up to be a cosmic country week. Ryan Curtis just released a new single, "Can't Take Back." It's definitely a country song, but it's also filled with more groove than you ever thought possible along with some fabulous psychedelic guitar work. I can't quite place when "Can't Take Back" sounds like it's from, but it certainly isn't 2023. The 1970's seems to be the default when discussing psychedelia, and especially for cosmic country, but that doesn't seem quite right, either. Curtis has created a sound that is both familiar and all his own.
You can listen to "Can't Take Back" below. Ain't Ever Easy is due out July 14 on American Standard Time Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Ryan Curtis, check out the artist on Facebook and Instagram.
