Guitar music arguably made its way out of the popular mainstream around the turn of the previous decade, but through musicians such as Annie Dukes and her invention of tracks, we can assume that the endangering is not entirely complete. Coming straight out of Jacksonville, the all-female original rock and roll group motivated to deliver a purely exuberant RnR sound that seems to be decadent in the present day.
The singer-songwriter opens up her discography with the release of her debutant track Tension — a Britpop stylized rock and roll ballad comprising electric guitar riffs, staccato percussive performances and an assertive message to deliver through its lyricism. Annie Dukes does not shy away from songwriting that may be labelled ‘too strong’, making Tension a thoroughly upbeat ambitious rock and roll anthem tailored for immediate upliftment of both energy and self-construal.
Dukes’ vocal performance appears self-assured and directive-oriented, ushering in her music an ethos of confidence and credence that resonates marvellously with the listener. Her vocal performances are coupled only with the stimulating and prompt electric guitar licks that ode to the genre’s Britpop heydays, providing Dukes’ music a hint of nostalgic reminiscence of the erstwhile glory of conventionally guitar-driven music. Annie Dukes has only just begun, but her music presents itself with no diffidence or introversion. Instead, it is driven with self-reliant femininity that becomes indicative of the sort of thematic affiliation Dukes tries to build through her music.
With Zeppelin and Black Crowes inspirations, the group remains tightly knit as ever with Cassidy Lee, Lindsey Michelle (electric guitar) and Emma Moseley (bass) on vocals, with Michelle Spaulding on organs.
