“Down” by Podge Lane is a lively alt-country anthem that defies the gravity of its title with lively, bluesy vocals and a dirty guitar line that demands foot-stomping revelry. The song is a defiant “fuck you” to naysayers, cloaked in a stripped-down, rock n’ roll swagger but still maintaining its country soul.

Podge Lane’s singing is especially remarkable, mixing sand and sagacity with a sincerity that cuts to the core. It is one of those songs that not only makes you get up and dance but also sticks in your mind, proving Lane’s ability to write catchy melodies with substance.
