There are only so many times you can take back that cheating lover or buy any of their sorry excuses. Its easier said than done, but one soul band is taking a stand. The Right Now isnt going to take it anymore. The Right Now is fed up. And on their second record, The Right Now Gets Over You.
The challenging title is a reality check, but delivered with a wink from singer Stefanie Berecz. Its just a representation of the stories in the songs. Nearly every track has a cheating character, or someone whos had enough of their lover. Its a mixed bag of empowerment and regret. Gets Over You continues the its complicated theme of 2010â€²s Carry Me Home, although this outing shows Berecz in a darker, seedier role.
Recorded in a cathartic, week-long session in Los Angeles, CA with producer Sergio Rios (Orgone), Gets Over You takes the Chicago septets soulful sound to the warm, crackling world of analog tape and vintage instruments. Bereczs voice, often compared to those of Chaka Kahn and Joss Stone, takes center stage. The band shines with raw, gritty performances and elegant arrangements that are the result of countless hours of performing, rehearsing and touring together.
Bereczs emotionally-charged vocal performance has been the bands calling card at over 200 shows in the past two years. The Right Nows electrifying live show, matching suits, choreographed horn section, and all, has earned them a reputation as dynamic, complex, hip and just downright fun. (Gapers Block).
It takes a man to admit that its over, Berecz confidently croons on Half As Much. But if you cant, I can do it for sure. While Stefanie Berecz may have gotten over the man in this song, audiences wont be getting over her any time soon.
