Otis hits the rockabilly scene with this number.

His liveliness and raw energy has always set him apart and this track is no exception. A high pitch key line tinkers on top of the rhythm, but otherwise everything sits in the pocket of Otis' unique brand of cool.

There's a live and spontaneous feel to most of his work and that element really shines through here in terms of the vocal delivery in particular.
