Roger Cole & Paul Barrere: “Let It Go” combines musical inspiration and travelling emotions

Meaningful lyrics, amazing songwriting, superb heart-warming yet angry sound, musical teamwork, everything is so perfect in this track. Such a gorgeous and refined melody and philosophical lyrics is worth being remembered for all of the current generation.

The bassist backs up the music stably as the boys sing the vocals with conviction. This is one of my current desert Island #1’s in the Roger Cole & Paul Barrere catalog. Yes, the track “Let It

So he’s the man

“A call to reinvention and finding your better self, the singer repeats the earworm phrase ‘I’m not a victim, I’m Superman,’ against a spiky guitar solo. Delivered with the conviction of a host of daring divas that came before her, you can’t help but believe the lady.” –   MTV Iggy
