“Great Idea” is the lead track off of Bombardier Jones’ latest album Dare to Hope, which was released on April 24, 2020. In this track, Baltimore-based frontrunner Ian Jones blends 60s British rock and 80s post-punk into a refreshing burst of rock and roll energy that takes you back in time while also incorporating modern elements. Jones couples his rich vocals with lively keyboard riffs and funky guitars, giving us a tune that makes you want to forget your problems and dance!
On his inspiration behind “Great Idea”, Jones says it is an “unplug manifesto” that is meant to encourage people to put down their phones for a while and enjoy the natural wonders of the world around us. This song is the perfect tune to listen to on a long drive with the windows down, singing along with your friends. It’s catchy chorus is sure to stick with you for a while, hopefully serving as a reminder to not stress too much about life’s hardships and let loose, if just for a while.
