Kimberly H. Smith on Roll On:
A must-hear for music lovers. It has a little bit of everything. Guitars, drums, and vocals. You get snippets of the 70s, and 80s. That’s no small feat. My head and feet began moving immediately upon listening to the track. It’s energetic and catchy. The upbeat video takes you on a journey throughout the song. You can’t help but love it. The guitar solo midway puts the icing on the cake.
“Roll On” by Gregor Morley is a hit!
Roll On is a solid bit of seventies rock that keeps a frenetic amount of energy from beginning to end. The track benefits from a solid production, allowing the guitars, drums, and vocals to shine separately or as a cohesive unit. The switch between instrumental and vocal elements keeps things particularly fresh, while the narrative that is created by Morley here allows listeners to be firmly involved with the track. The coup de grace for this track has to come in the guitar solo that unites the two parts of the track. Morley is able to unite 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s rock into something that contemporary listeners can appreciate; fans of rock, pop, and alternative music will be able to find something that they can dig in Roll On. A tidy three and a half minutes, Roll On will stick around with listeners long after the track has ceased.

The track comes forward in a very strong and confident way, with a stripped and straight forward rock approach. The guitars, drums, and vocals unite to make something that is melodic, hard-hitting, and is ultimately something that will be kicking around the minds and heards of anyone that has listened in. The specific strain of rock that Morley utilizes during Mad Men is a blend of seventies rock like AC/DC and Thin Lizzy with a much more down and dirty, contemporary feeling brand. With this eclectic sound, it is no surprise that Morley hits it out of the park ws track – with eith thivery element given their chance to shine, the track is one that has considerable replay value.
