New Music: For The Girl "The Tide"
It's been a while since we last heard anything from Nottingham indie rockers For The Girl and their time away has been time well spent.
A couple of years ago, we were treated to the rip-roaring single "Wouldn't You Like To Know" from Nottingham's For The Girl and what seemed to be a much darker sound than their previous releases. Little did we know at the time that this track was going to mark a two year break, change of direction and change of personnel.
The band return with their new single "The Tide" and this time, they mean business. Their new sound, soaring guitar riffs and power chords, reminiscent of The Killers or the Arctic Monkeys, puts these guys right in the middle of the chasing pack to be the next big thing.
"The Tide" is expertly led by frontman Sam Plenty and his unique vocal sound, with the rest of the band delivering a tasty musical backdrop, filled with crunchy rhythm guitar, eyebrow-raising lead guitar. subtle (yet super effective) synths, power-pop drums and a bass track that is sweet as. All in all, this is a song that is top drawer and we have a good feeling about this one.
We're told that this is to be the first of three singles for this year, with a tour lined up for October and a rapidly filling calendar for the end of the year. Watch this space!
