Seether, ‘Tonight’ – Song Review
Seether have unleashed another catchy yet edgy radio hit with ‘Tonight,’ the latest single from their fifth studio album, ‘Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray.’
Frontman Shaun Morgan’s deep, raspy vocals make for a nice contrast with the light guitar riffs that come during the song's verses.
Lyrically, the tune is an ultimate make-out song with its chorus: “I feel so alive tonight / You got me feeling sublime / I want to yell it from the rooftops down / Until it’s over, and we’re older.”
Although it has a poppy rhythm similar to a Kings of Leon song, Seether still manage to maintain a hard-rock sound with a tinge of country.
One of the highlights of ‘Tonight’ comes toward the end of the track, where the tempo slows back down and Morgan sings, “So take me, but go slow / Let me hide somewhere I know / And let this seed grow / Until we finally call this home,” complete with epic sounding bells and a galloping drum pattern.
‘Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray’ is Seether's highest-charting album, reaching the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 tally. The disc has already yielded the No. 1 mainstream rock hit 'Country Song.'
