“I’m James Bond” is a single that is as complex as the character it studies. Romain Gutsy’s sense of humor shines not only in the lyrics but also in his exaggerated vocal delivery of a macho-macho man with a thick though-guy British accent.
Romain Gutsy is known for his lyrics full of charm and humor which he expands upon with each new release. Also characteristic of his music is without a doubt his voice.
Seasoned and with a deep guttural voice, the French-based artist Romain Gutsy gives voice to the Chinese minority. So, as it’s drenched in the layered emotions of mostly longing and sadness, Romain Gutsy’s new single is as true to life as it gets to be.
It’s a song that takes on the approach of one of those storyteller-type of folk songs. Alas, this is Romain we’re talking about here! So, he adds his own unique personal touch on it by telling a sad story, but in absence of any sadness.
With the groove of a wayfarer, the track moves forward like a chariot over a wavy road. Making use of a clawhammer banjo and an aerial and stellar production, Gutsy charms his way through his deep raspy voice and clever lyricism.
“I was practicing and often when I have a classical guitar in hand, I warm up by playing Estudio #1 of Villa-Lobos. And that day I started to sing on it. And that was the start of My Only Love”. Romain Gutsy
