about

“Make You Mine” is a fun and funky blend of hard and soft, and it finds Of Gentlemen & Cowards channeling the best of American music. The funk bass recalls the era of Red Hot Chili Peppers; vocalist Simon Edwards channels the Southern soul-rock styling of The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson, while the backup harmonies are pure Motown sweetness. It’s not surprising, really, considering the band’s love of modern Southern soul-rockers Alabama Shakes and Band of Horses. “We’re musical nerds,” they will tell you, and “Make You Mine” is Of Gentlemen & Cowards proudly and unapologetically wearing their influences on their sleeves, resulting in a song that feels familiar, yet not nostalgic. You may think you’ve heard this song somewhere before, but you haven’t. Mission accomplished.

lyrics

Tell me your story, comin' up higher
Out of the smoke and onto the wire
Covered in matches sung by the choir
Through the fire, I swim to you
I'm trying to tell you

I want to make you mine

Out of the ashes, finally breathing
Something inside to say that I'm dreaming
We've only just come, but out you go leaving
Through the dust, I look for you
Cause I'm trying to tell you

I want to make you mine

And when you move like that, I want to make you mine
When you groove like that, I want you make you mine
You're lighting me up just to watch it all burn out, from the wax into the wick
Cause when you move like that

I want to make you mine

about

Of Gentlemen & Cowards Hamilton, Ontario

Formed in 2010, the band has seen ups and downs, including an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman and an ill-fated cruise ship gig that both broke the band’s heart and yet transformed their sound into a more soulful one. Through it all, Of Gentlemen & Cowards persevered, and this young band’s brand of optimistic, well-crafted soulful rock is borne from its experiences, both good and bad. ... more
