SINGLE REVIEW: Tyler & the Tribe "Heaven & Hell"

Rockin' the house is no problem for the down-home boys known as Tyler & the Tribe. Like all good outlaw and Red Dirt bands, the Tribe has a little bit of good and a little bit of bad - sometimes a whole lot of the latter. However, this is how Texas loves its country bands, and Tyler and The Tribe's superb new single "Heaven and Hell" gives you a little bit of both.

The cut begins with an easy-going sound reminiscent of the best work of Micky and the Motorcars, and it slowly builds to a toe-tapping melody that includes the memorable phrase: "I've got a foot in heaven and one in hell."

The laid-back vocal performance is intensely interesting, and some vocalists might have chosen to oversing. To its credit, Tyler & the Tribe resist the urge, and the song works as a radio friendly sing-a-long song that actually has some added depth upon repeated listens. The band's careful instrumentation also deserves special mention.

In the song, Tyler & the Tribe repeatedly tell us that they have a foot in hell. However, based on this track, the band's career seems to be firmly in an upward trajectory. TexasCharts.com
