HALSEY - New Americana

This song is from the album BADLANDS(2015), released on 28 August 2015.
What I liked about this song is the energy and the power of the performance. The kick and snares were excellent, they had the same power and energy of the vocals. The production could have been a little more lively,, the background felt pretty empty compared to the power in the vocals.

[INTRO]
[VERSE]
Ab      Fm      Cm
Cigarettes and tiny liquor bottles, 
           Ab      Fm    Cm               Eb
Just what you'd expect inside her new Balenciaga.
Ab     Fm             Cm
Bad romance, turned dreams into an empire.
Ab         Fm              Cm             Eb
Self-made success now she rose with Rockafellas.

[PRE-CHORUS]
Ab                                     Bb
Survival of the richest, the city's ours until the fall.

They're Monaco and Hampton's bound but we don't feel like outsiders at all.

[CHORUS]
Ab                Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                    Gm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                      Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb
we are the new Americana.

[VERSE]
Ab          Fm          Cm
Young James Dean, some say he looks just like his father, 
Ab   Fm         Cm            Eb
But he could never love somebody's daughter.
 Ab        Fm        Cm
Football team loved more than just the game 
        Ab     Fm          Cm           Eb
So he vowed to be his husband at the alter.

[PRE-CHORUS]
Fm                            Cm
Survival of the richest, the city's ours until the fall.
         Bb
They're Monaco and Hampton's bound but we don't feel like outsiders at all.

[CHORUS]
Ab                Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                    Gm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                      Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb
we are the new Americana.

[BRIDGE]
Cm                             Bb
We know very well who we are, so we hold it down when summer starts.
Ab      Fm          Cm
What kind of dough have you been spending?
Bb
What kind of bubblegum have you been blowing lately?

[CHORUS]
Ab                Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                    Gm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                      Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb
we are the new Americana.

[CHORUS]
Ab                Cm
We are the new Americana,
Bb                    Gm
high on legal marijuana,
Ab                      Cm
raised on Biggie and Nirvana,
Bb
we are the new Americana.
