New music is a staple in everyone's music library and I am so happy to be able to share with you the best EP that I have heard lately! I've mentioned this guy a few times but I am so excited for Cale Dodds and where his music career is taking him! He is definitely going to be an artist that you want to watch out and listen for because he is going to be big time! Keep reading to find out a little bit about Cale and why I love his new EP!
If you've heard of Cale Dodds you probably already have a pretty good idea of just how awesome Cale is! He has a personality that makes you want to be friends with Cale so you can hang out and have fun all of the time! If you haven't heard of Cale no worries this post will help you! Here's a video that Cale put out the week of his release to help people get a better idea of who he is as an artist and I love how he captured that through the music of his EP.
So here's the rundown of Cale's newest EP People Watching!
This song is my absolute favorite! If you buy one song off of this EP (you should really buy the whole thing!) this is the one I suggest!
The writing in this song is absolutely genius! Cale does a great job of kind of paying on words and using the almost two sided lyrics throughout this entire album. While one might be expecting this song to be about you sitting around and watching others, it has that effect but that's not the whole story! This song talks about you and your person going out on the town and everyone looking at you! While they are watching you, you are watching them watch you. It's an extremely genius play on words and I think that helps with the whole catchyness of the song (I'm pretty sure catchyness isn't a word but I'm using it anyways)!
Acting Our Age
This song is an upbeat song about how we don't need to grow up so fast! It's an anthem about how we need to live in the moment and not waste our lives away to fast! It's lyrics say "we've got the rest of our lives for the rest of our lives" and it makes me want to go do something spontaneous and not waste away my life! If you follow Cale on snap chat you probably saw the shenanigans occurring during promotion time, if not here's just a glimpse of Cale and his brother Chase!
This song is written in again an almost two sided lyrical tone. It's a love story from the pessimistic and optimistic view. We see the optimistic side of the relationship when lyrics like "lying on the hood of my car" come on which make you think about spending time with the person you love. The pessimistic side shows when we think of it as lying about the relationship lasting, you want the relationship to last but find out it might just be more of a summer love. I think it's a really interesting dynamic and I don' think I'm the only one who thinks that there are two different sides of the song!

Like We Do
This song is a feel good song that I'll definitely be playing this week in Orlando! Lyrics like "we're gonna grow up but no time soon" and "we're living it up like we do" radiate happy go lucky song! It's the perfect summer anthem! It plays off again with Acting Our Age about how we only have one life and we need to live it to the fullest!
Give It Back
This song. This song is the love song, so to say, of the EP. It talks about how you fall so in love with someone that you never want them to give back the love that you're radiating to them. The lyrics help display this deep love by saying "take my heart, don't give it back, don't give it back". My favorite lyrics from this song are probably "there ain't no way to know girl if we'll end up hurting, but I ain't easing in girl I'm diving in head first". With this song and the song off of his last EP Say Yes Cale is soon to have every girl in America swooning over having a guy like the one in this song!
Cale, I'm pretty sure this EP is going to continue to grow and get noticed! The writing is so clever and genius that it envelops you and makes you want to listen to the five songs over and over again. I've probably listened to this EP and ungodly amount of times since the day it came out and I don't plan on ever stopping. It's that good! I can't wait to see where 2016 takes you in your music career!
