70s nostalgia Melbourne, Australia band Mantell share ‘Can I Set It Right’

If you a fan of the seventies, the diverging guitars and mesmerising bass lines will cloak you.

Just before listening to this song, I declined another that didn’t have a positive message. Nor did it have the elements that make a “good” song what it is. Taste may be subjective, but there are specific things that ought to happen to make a perfect stranger appreciate quality song structure and execution. Aiming to keep my recently broken spirit in check and balanced, I found temporary happiness in the melody and lyrics to ‘Can I Set It Right’ by the Australian band Mantell. I wouldn’t say the words of the song will make the person he’s talking about “happy”. However, I celebrate people with the ability to express themselves—in a healthy format. If you a fan of the seventies, the diverging guitars and mesmerising bass lines will cloak you. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the privilege of visiting Melbourne yet, but I hear it is all the rave–musically. Anyone here, reading, who can attest to that statement? In the meantime, listen to the cut by the 2013 formed band.
