Fans of the distinctly voiced Avery Storm have been waiting for his new upcoming album Shotgun Love, but although we heard the album’s lead single Not Like My Girl in April, and it’s second offering Supermodel in July, Shotgun appears no closer to a solid release date. What’s the hold-up? Perhaps Avery’s waiting for a record to truly take off. If so, my money’s on new prospective single Leader of the Band becoming that record. On the production side beatsmith Nefu crafts an instantly engaging, clapping beat with just a hint of edge, which Avery overlays with lyrics letting a special lady know just who’s calling the shots (at least in bed). Lyrically we’ve heard music-as-sex metaphors like these before, but it’s Avery’s inventive, smooth yet gritty vocal performance that truly takes things to the next level; is that a Ginuwine So Anxious reference I hear? Personally my answer is emphatic yes, but I’m but one man. So what do you think Booth nation? Should Leader of the Band be Shotgun Love’s next official single?
