Kevin Lee and the Kings - "Best Is Yet To Come"
Review by Dylan Lloyd
The new song "Best Is Yet To Come" by Kevin Lee and the Kings from their latest EP release entitled "Lightning Strikes" is a massive rock anthem with an extremely catchy chorus. The layered group vocals belt out the lyrics in the chorus with rock and roll grit, while the guitars fill up the thick stereo image on this song. The bass and drums groove right in the pocket while also providing movement with varying drum fills and bassline runs that happen throughout this track.
Lyrically, "Best Is Yet To Come" is about looking toward the future in a positive light with hope of what lies ahead. They convey the optimistic message of the songs with lyrics like, "There's something here, that gives me faith to carry on. It's so clear this is where I belong" and of course the chorus lyric line "I just can't believe my eyes, I'm staring at a new sunrise, now I know the best is yet to come." When the vocal layers come in with the choruses' lead vocal, it dramatically impacts the hopeful lyrical message sung on this recording.
"Best Is Yet To Come" by Kevin Lee and the Kings is an uplifting song with captivating lyrics that would be perfect for any modern rock playlist. The multi-tracked electric guitars, huge-sounding drums, thick bass tone, and passionately sung vocals all work cohesively together on this song to create an incredibly full sound. Check out this song and the rest of the songs on Kevin Lee and the Kings' newest EP, "Lightning Strikes."
