Hailing from a musical family, it was only natural that Austin-based singer-songwriter JB Elwood would end up taking the mantle, and he did! Still possessing the priceless gift in the form of a 1960’s Gibson Dove guitar that was given to him by his late grandpa, JB Elwood has been on a quest to fulfilling the vision his grandpa and many others saw in him. Elwood’s music is an experience – a refreshing fusion of alternative, country, and pop whilst still maintaining his Appalachian roots as he blends edgy, lively, and melodious vibes that connect his sound to his listeners.
His new single and music video, “Don’t Go Looking for Love,” dropped this summer and is making waves steadily across the streaming platforms. Eloquently and finely crafted, this track has a feel that is delightfully timeless and reverential of the dangers of holding onto a toxic relationship while still moving forward along the twisted turns of stripped-down pop rock!
The guitars here are performed with such theatrics and showmanship with the track gaining pace as it continues to build with the unleashed drums and electric guitar, adding a colorful depth and sonic diversity that is equally backed by a very powerful and emotion-filled lead vocal presentation. The way Elwood passionately belts out that chorus is breathtaking!
This song magically grows on you with the hook-heavy and bombastic instrumentation, and that emotionally relatable theme at its core is why so many listeners will heavily gravitate toward it. If you feel like you are drowning, it is better to walk out while you still can, for there is always hope for another love just on the horizon, and like Elwood sings, “when push comes to shove, don’t go looking for love…”
This is a neat choice and a highlight of JB Elwood’s deeply relatable artistry. “Don’t Go Looking for Love” has a deep heart, which is exuded in the thoughtful lyrics and the essential vocals, which resonate appropriately, perfectly capturing the track’s mood and a message about the dangers involved in toxic love and hope in finding new love all the same!
