All Alone is a new single from the band, West of Corey. Slated to appear on the Minneapolis-based trio’s upcoming album, Big Ass Deal, the song combines elements of rock, lounge and soul. The lyrics are belted out passionately and powerfully. Lead vocalist Stacey Squires has a formidable voice, reminiscent of legends like Bonnie Tyler and Kim Carnes. The song starts off as though it’s going to be a mellow, piano-driven lounge tune. Then the guitars kick into high gear, and the sound absolutely rocks. The intensity of the performances and the slick guitar work, give the song a 1980s quality, even though it is not a “retro” song of any kind. Featuring some truly stellar performances without any production tricks or creative editing, this is just first class contemporary rock.
