Frank Ray: ‘Getcha Some’ – EP Review
Frank Ray releases his new EP, Getcha Some, out now, August 12th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below and check out our full review.
Frank Ray is making his major-label debut with his brand new EP titled, Getcha Some. The Mexican-American singer-songwriter is sharing six songs for country music fans to fall in love with. Getcha Some is a cohesive EP that you will want to listen to again and again.
The project kicks off with “Streetlights.” Written by Ray with Bobby Hamrick and Frank Rogers, the single is fun and catchy. The melody makes you want to sing and dance along to the Spanish-influenced song. Ray even infuses the Spanish language into the track, adding to the incredible feel of the song.
Sitting at number two on the EP is Ray’s current top 20 and climbing, radio single, “Country’d Look Good On You.” The song is a clear radio winner. The track is both catchy and romantic. Ray shows off his ability to cultivate an incredible track on this solo-write.
“I bet country’d look good on you // Tearin’ up an old two-lane or two // Stars shootin’ ‘cross them baby blues // I bet country’d look good on you // I’m talkin’ county line in the middle of nowhere // Talkin’ out of town, lettin’ down your wild hair // If I get to lovin’ on you like I want to // I bet country’d look good on you”
Ray continues the good vibes and the honest lyrics on the next two tracks, “Y’all Showed Up” and “Somebody Else’s Whiskey.” On the former track, Ray brings the party and island vibes to the fun-loving song. On the contrary, “Somebody Else’s Whiskey” focuses on the story being told. Ray shows off his incredible song-writing prowess yet again.
“I was smiling, thinking about // She’s drinking somebody else’s whiskey // On somebody’s else’s tab // Riding shotgun with some other poor SOB”
The singer-songwriter switches things up on “Late.” The new song is one of our favorites on the project. Instead of leaning into complimenting your love, Ray focuses on the imperfections in a relationship, singing lyrics like “Some things in life are worth the wait even if they are late.”
Finally the record closes with another high-energy song, “Out On Me.” Feeling like an appropriate bookend to “Streetlights,” Ray gives fans a taste of what to expect from a live performance with this jam.
According to the artist, “Getcha Some kind of feels like my introduction to the world so when putting this project together, I really wanted it to be representative of all of the facets of who I am—a family man, proud Hispanic, high-energy entertainer and a bit of a good time Charlie, He later adds, “Most importantly, I wanted to create something that would make people smile. I can’t wait to share these songs with the world and soak in those moments with the crowd.”
Ray definitely fulfilled his desires with this great debut!
