Song Review- VanGoGo- Get Up to You


Detroit Rockers’ Vangogo return with a new retro track, entitled ‘Get Up to You’.  Produced by Chuck Alkazian at Pearl Sound Studios. the quartet released a track heavily influenced by John Hughes films ( The Breakfast Club, National Lampoon, Home Alone).

The 1980s throwback to dreamy vocals and synth-pop is readily on display. Lead singer Nathan Mackinder explains, “‘Get Up to You” is about the journey to achieve the love you deserve. There are a lot of incredible stories out there about how people ended up together. Seems like for the majority, it didn’t come easy and there were a lot of long hard roads and tall jagged mountains to climb to get to a place where things worked out. But in all instances, it was an extreme desire and prophetic love that made it worth the voyage.”

‘Get Up to You’ is a guitar-driven track that is accompanied by lead vocalist Nathan Mackinder’s soft and tender vocals. The song blends hazy synthesisers with infectious pop to leave listeners feeling warm inside.
