TRACK REVIEW: Chris Kelly – My Name | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

My Name is a track that has taken five years to be released; the song about the transition from teenager to young adult has been on the back burner since 2017. Given that subject matter it could have been a lot darker than it is. Chris Kelly has delivered a guitar-led track that is similar in style to Tom Petty before he fell under the spell of Jeff Lynne. 

What makes it refreshing though is the change in pace mid-way through. The urgency at the start swings through a slower phase that helps give the song a lasting impact. This is one of those songs that would be perfect for drive time radio given its catchy riff and lyrics.
