Last month, Indianapolis-based singer-songwriter J.T. Larsen unveiled his debut single Southern Indiana Nights, we were immediately on board with his rich alt-country sounds. The song brimmed with charming lyricism and jangly instrumentation, immediately establishing Larsen as a songwriter to watch.
Now, he has released his equally-charming follow-up single Old Loud Beat Down Train. If you’re not already on the J.T. Larsen train, stop kidding yourself and come join in on the good times.
With the release of his epic new single Old Loud Beat Down Train, Indianapolis-based singer-songwriter J.T. Larsen continues to build himself as a songwriter to watch.
While Southern Indiana Nights was driven by searing guitar solos and dynamic vocal hooks, Old Loud Beat Down Train burns a bit slower. Incorporating elements of gospel and soul into his twangy melting pot of sounds, Larsen has crafted a song that will leave you completely captivated.
Exploring themes of vulnerability and taking risks, Old Loud Beat Down Train is equal parts cinematic and relatable. The track feels epic, but also grounded in real, engaging ideas. In a relatively short amount of time, Larsen has built himself as a master of crafting country gems that feel both authentic and grand.
This is the latest in a pair of great releases from J.T. Larsen, and we can’t wait to hear what he delivers next. Here’s a hot tip from the team here at Happy Mag: keep a close eye on this name, we’re expecting big things.
