On May 26, Chicago-based R&B funk band Attack the Sound (ATS) released their latest single, “Pick Up Your Phone” on You Tube and all the usual streaming platforms.

“Pick Up Your Phone” is a Doo-Wop-inspired up-tempo tune coming hot on the heels of the band’s earlier hit, “People Make Love”. “Pick Up Your Phone” is a high energy song which will transport listeners back to the golden age of music where big band music was celebrated.

The song is also reminiscent of the 1980s and will keep listeners on the dance floor from beginning to end. This song is a perfect fit for a live studio audience all the way up to the big musical finish at the end of the song. “Pick Up Your Phone” is essentially about the forces we experience in our relationships – about connection, self-disclosure – but essentially positivity and hope.

Lead singer Davo Sounds delivers a heart-on-sleeve storytelling “please don’t make me wait for you” while the lyrics fit neatly with the song’s fun and uplifting musical arrangement and instrumental backing.

Attack the Sound (ATS) was formed in 2009 by by army vet, singer/songwriter Davo Sounds (David Woulard) with the following line-up of exceptional musical talent:

Lead Vocals/Guitar – Davo Sounds
Guitar/Vocals – Viano
Bass – Netta Sherrell
Keys/Vocals – Nikki
Drums/Vocals – Paris Jmal
Sax/Vocals – Vante
Trumpet/Vocals – Wei
Trombone/Vocals – Royce Turner
