Ashley Puckett Holds Nothing Back on “Tequila”

A woozy, dazed quality emerges on Ashley Puckett’s yearning “Tequila”. From the slide guitar to the gritty storytelling it all works. She manages to make this rather captivating world one that feels doubly refreshing. Everything about her delivery adds to the inherent beauty of the piece. Rhythms go for a looseness ensuring that every single detail gets accentuated with percussion that works on an emotional level. Best of all the riffs have a dreamy disposition for there is this sense of pure longing that defines the work.

She holds nothing back and right from the beginning it has its own sense of purpose. A groove has an unsteadiness to it, perfectly embodying what a lot of tequila might do to a person. This, on top of the lustful glances that she brings into the fray, further adds to the romantic quality of the work. Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent. For the final stretch of the mix the song seemingly tapers off, allowing for a gradual letdown of that kinetic energy, with her voice continuing to lead the way all until the very final moments.

“Tequila” has a tenderness to it, for Ashley Puckett makes sure to touch upon the very essence of what it means to truly want.
