One part Stevie Nicks, two parts Johnny Cash, singer-songwriter Janet Batch pours out her frustrations about her ungrateful man in the most country way possible ― in a lighthearted, boot-stomping track, going by the name of “Got No Idea.”
The track has all the makings of a country classic: a melancholic start that puts us right in the protagonist’s boots and an upbeat middle and finish, colored with playful guitar solos and unadulterated vocals, unassuming, yet beautiful.
“Got No Idea” invokes affinity even if you haven’t stepped foot in the “country” world; triggers nostalgia for the so-called simpler times; and gives a sense of poetic hope about life in general even while narrating about hopelessly toiling away your days only to come back to a loveless home, the way only quality country and Etta James can.
“Got No Idea” is a instant country classic, and there’s more where that came from ― Batch’s upcoming release, You be the Wolf, which captures everything from boot-stomping two-steps, like this one, to classic country waltzes.
