Superstar duo The Bacon Brothers know how to strike when the iron is hot. As successful songwriters and veteran artists cemented in both the rock and Americana genres, The Bacon Brothers are following up on their latest single, “In Memory (Of When I Care)”, with remixes of previous releases.

“British Invasion” debuts on The Bacon Brothers’ 2020 LP . Appeared as the opening track on the way we love. With big-band energy and tongue-in-cheek lyricism, “British Invasion (Remix)” breathes new life into a throwback rock tune.
The new track features loud drums, bright horns, and melodious guitar licks that make for a truly engaging and enjoyable listening experience and elevate the source material.
The song’s title cleverly brings to mind real-world events, while the track suggests that it is actually about a beautiful British girl who “invaded”. [the narrator’s] Soul.” With clever references like “Goodbye to My Blue Suede Rock and Roll”, this track highlights some of the most iconic and gripping genres that have influenced the rock genre since its inception.
The cheeky laugh at the song’s opening and closing ties the track together, foreshadowing and then reminding the listener who, and not the, “British Invasion” really is. Who can resist that “black eyeliner and a Twiggy skirt” game from Titanic Invaders? Clearly, those UK girls are some irresistible guys.
