Kings of Leon ‘Family Tree’ – Crank It or Yank It?
The Followill boys’ search for another hit continues with “Family Tree”.
Unlike most of the singles Kings of Leon release to radio, the latest offering from Mechanical Bull is a funky, upbeat number. Complimenting the noodling guitars is Caleb Followill’s gritty vocal delivery. With lyrics that start off with, “I tell you now that I don’t understand / why everybody gives a big hot damn / oh where I’m going to / don’t mean a thing to you”, I would assume the song is very personal to him.
While Kings of Leon are accustomed to ruling the Alternative charts, their tunes are a little more hit-or-miss when it comes to Active Rock. Lend an ear to “Family Tree” and tell us if you think the band have a hit on their hands.
