Kolton Moore & the Clever Few are back with another single, and this one will put things into perspective.

Simultaneously drawing on the nostalgia of the past while invoking a positive outlook on life to come, the band’s latest single “The Sound” provides several life lessons in its four and a half minute duration.

Penned with clever, heartfelt lyricism, “The Sound” is presumably written as an ode to Moore’s father, beginning with a childhood memory of his own and continuing with many of the valuable life lessons he is thankful to have learned from his father.

Give “The Sound” a listen for yourself here.

“We’d always know dinner’s on by 7:30
Yeah the sun sets late here this time of year
And I know that most things change
There’s a few that stay the same
Like the way you love and the way the world goes ’round
Yeah the taxes are due and the seed goes in the ground
Yeah my voice will go away but you’ll never forget the sound
Oh you’ll never forget the sound…”

A band that has released music relatively sparsely over the last several years, Texas-based Kolton Moore & the Clever Few have now released two songs in just a matter of two weeks.

If you haven’t heard it yet, their previous single “My Heart You’ll Tend” was a spectacular love song for Moore’s wife, and now with “The Sound” I may be seeing a trend here…

Could there be a new album on the way? I sure hope so.

Kolton Moore & the Clever Few haven’t released a full album since 2020’s Everything has Changed, and before that, 2013’s How Did I Get Here?

The band in its current formations consists of frontman Kolton Moore, guitar slinger Ryan Wilcox, drummer Aaron Dowd, Ricky Harris keeping tempo on the bass, and Ace Crayton on the keys, and together, they seem to be on a hot streak with these two singles in recent weeks.

Hopefully there is more to come, but in the meantime, give a few of the band’s Texas country classics a spin below.

“Mine All Mine”

“Dear Mom”

“Ain’t So Well”
