Single Reviews 23/01/21

Oxford based band BE GOOD have released their ‘Everything’s Alright In The Evening’ EP, with ‘Young Strangers’ in particular being a stand out. It is an 80’s throwback with brooding synths and a fine melody akin to The 1975 when they were still decent. ‘Young Strangers’ is a song that immediately grabs you and doesn’t let go for four minutes and eighteen seconds. If you check out just one release from what we have written about here, make it his one. Phenomenal and our Single Of The Week. Watch the music video here.

BLAB (Frances Murray) gives us ‘Casual Sex’ a blimmin tune and a half. With echoes of Lush, her accent makes this what it is. ‘Casual Sex’ is sassy, lyrically blinding and has some splendid play on words if you listen carefully. A BBC Introducing ‘Sounds Of 2021’ artist she says: “Casual Sex is an ode to the dilemmas of single life. We’ve all been in a situation where you start seeing someone and there’s an ambiguity around where you stand with them and it all becomes a bit messy. This song is about as honest and blunt as you can get. I love the weight of the line “Casual sex makes me feel depressed”, I feel like it sets the sarcastic and self destructive tone of the song. It’s about knowing that the person you’re seeing doesn’t give a shit about you but still seeing them anyway even though it makes you feel crap. Instrumentally and lyrically I love it, it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve written to date; honest, hard-hitting & hooky.” ‘Casual Sex’ is our Single Of The Week. LISTEN HERE.
