Sheppard’s “Geronimo!” Gets Lifted By Gold Coast Superstar Komes
“Komes is 5’11 with sandy blonde hair and piercing green eyes. He enjoys the occasional glass of chardonnay with dinner before desert by the pool. He remains active by participating in sports of lacrosse and polo and spends his free time helping out where he can at the local animal shelter, he can be found practicing his passion in clubs around the country, his wonderful technique of mixing songs together sets him apart from the other DJ’s, who also mix songs together. He feels that sometimes songs should be better, so he often makes his own, then plays them – people like that.”
What a good bounce track means to me is a get up and go right from the beginning and Komes‘ “Geronimo!” is no exception. The breakdown features the chart-topping A’Capella from George Sheppard which reminds me of “Center of the Universe” by Axwell. The pounding drums and dissonant guitar strumming along with warm synth pads create a pillow under the vocal that totally brings soul and character to the whole piece. All you could want to add is beat to dance along to, and guess what? You got it. Put your hands in the air! the fill shouts and we drop! Such an amazing track being given away for free, there is no wonder this guy is supported by superstars like TJR and Chuckie.
Sheppard is an Australian folk-pop family band consisting of George, Amy and Emma Sheppard along with Jay Bovino, Michael Butler and Dean Gordon. Sheppard are the first independent act to hit the top in the ARIA (Australian Recording Indrustry Association) charts in a decade. 2014’s “Geronimo!” is the longest-running independently-released #1 ever with its 3-week reign and also the first ever #1 single to be recorded in Brisbane. “Geronimo!” was given Platinum status by ARIA in April 2014.
