The trio of musicians known as Farrell, Moran, Barnett have released their new single, “Cell Phone.” The track is the most significant official single to be published and digitally distributed by the group under the Farrell, Moran, Barnett name, though each member clearly has a long history in music. The single has been proudly published on the FMB Records independent music label without support from the corporate music industry. Cool, groovy, and closely adhering to the classic rock and American pop traditions of songwriting, “Cell Phone” is a timely addition to the pop and adult contemporary music genres.
Farrell, Moran, Barnett cite as main artistic influences Simon and Garfunkle, Bob Dylan, and swiftly rising pop star, Ed Sheeran. Of these, Farrell, Moran, Barnett share most of the best qualities of Simon and Garfunkle and Bob Dylan, particularly in the area of songwriting. “Cell Phone” manages to be deceptively simple, pared down to its acoustic root and powerfully evocative at the same time. Vocals are tastefully unadorned and clearly earnest in their warm, raw delivery. Fittingly, all accompanying instrumentation is straightforward, solid, and unobtrusive, building on the effectiveness of the song without frills or gaudy playing.
At the heart of “Cell Phone”'s potency in terms of romantic tone are the song's theme and lyric content. Like the best of the singer-songwriters pop music has to offer, the track has a central idea and clearly describes it through an infectious chord progression and matching verses and choruses.
“It's time to say 'Good night' to our cell phones,” the chorus runs. “I just wanna be with you alone / There's nothin' that can't wait un-til tomorrow / there's romance in the air to-night.”
The song is relevant to romantics both young and old and makes a fine addition to any mellow music compilation. Music fans everywhere are likely to hope for more from Farrell, Moran, Barnett before too long.
“Cell Phone” by Farrell, Moran, Barnett is available online worldwide.
