Taken from the upcoming album of the same name (available for pre-order from Wilsuns RC on July 14th), “Need to Feel Your Love” rips with a golden era of AM radio. To put it plainly, Sheer Mag ooze with rock, soul, funk, and glam here – they usually do, but more so here.

Tina Halladay’s voice packs a gritty rawness that is incapable of being shaken as it plunges into a tale of how long it has been since truly feeling a connection with a lover, yearning to live the moments of “remember when…” But with the track, it’s impossible to not move.

Guitars hit at just the right pace to make your head jolt a little bit in mid-nod. Halladay’s words appear with an unmistakable honesty and earnestness, an earnestness that just lets out the frustration while hoping something happens one way or another.

“Need to Feel Your Love” captures a Technicolor cinematic vibe, like a late night disco in a town in the Southwest. Your heart may be heavy, but they’re looking to lift it.
