Show Review

There is a lot of frenetic energy fueling our newest Bands and Brews session. Flashy lights, a killer sunset, glitzy costumery, slick dance moves, an electric xylophone (nope, we have never seen one either) and...yep, that's a freakin' Keybar people!! Really, it was a whole lot of awesome when Brooklyn band Great Good Fine OK took over our stage at Industry City in Sunset Park Brooklyn back in June.

Apparently, the band's addictive sound was one the duo of Jon Sandler and Luke Moellman arrived at rather quickly after bumping into to each other on the street. The band's first single "You're The One For Me" was written in one night, cranked hundreds of thousands of plays thanks to an memorable music video, and the band has spent the last year or so winning gobs of fans over with their party-ready, electro pop.

It's a sound that's certainly of the moment. Referencing M83, Phoenix, and Passion Pit seems appropriate. But they also sincerely throw it back a couple decades at the same time, paying tribute to the likes of Michael Jackson, Hall and Oates, and, though it might seem a little out there (just go with us here people!), Gloria freakin' Estefan. Seriously. Great Good Fine OK offer a rhythm that's gonna get you...and melodies that instantly jam themselves into the deep parts of the brain. And of course there's energy. Energy that is simply off the charts!

Transcript

out to our Bands and Brews Sessions here in Industry City.
You came in from the other side Took your time, made me feel alive
Why'd you let me go? You never tried.
You're born to be alone
What did you take of mine?
Was it funny like you know the other guy passing on by?
Everything you can think when you are a kid
Funny how we try to butcher real life
I could make a living selling lies like that
That's the way to go I never saw it coming
Why'd you do me like that? Do me like aaaah ooh ah
Will you take it or leave it? Will you take it or leave it?
Will you run away when I need it?
Ooooh ooh ah
I wanna feel it if you mean it Will you run away when I need it?
Will you take it or leave it?
Why did you take a ride In my mind?
You're my favorite kind Why'd you let me know
What you feel inside? You want to take control
Why did you never say On the other side
I was getting freaked out of my mind Why did you ever change?
When you are there and did you I could make a living selling lies like that
I see where it goes.
I never saw it coming
Why'd you do me like that? Do me like ooooh ooh ah
Will you take it or leave it? Will you take it or leave it?
Will you run away when you need it? Ooooh ooh ah
I wanna feel it if you mean it Will you run away when I need it?
Will you take it or leave it?
Take it or leave it.
I could make a living selling lies like that
Take it or leave it I never saw it coming
Why'd you do me like that? Do me like ooooh ooh ah
Will you take it or leave it?
Ooooh ooh ah
Will you take it or leave it? It's summer, but no one's calling
Because somewhere there's something new And you wait for someone special
Sit around while I think this whole thing through
I wonder if someone would get me, Why settle for something less than? Say it all or get out of my life
Say it all Say it all
Say it all Say it all
Hiding behind the corner It's okay for the sun beneath my heart
It's half the things that let you free me
And half the things that never starts
I feel that I've given you everything I've given you everything
I release my faith and all my pain Will come to help me
Say it all
I can handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Be a man
I can handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Trying to get it all
I'll handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Be a man
I can handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Trying to get it all
Or get out of my life
Say it all Say it all
Say it all Say it all
I've given you everything I've given you everything
I release my faith and all my pain Will come to help me
Say it
I've given you everything I've given you everything
I release my faith and all my pain Will come to help me
Say it all
Let me handle Work with nothing
Be a man
I can handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Trying to get it all
I'll handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Be a man
I can handle Let me handle
Work with nothing Trying to get it all
Or get out of my life Say it all
Say it all Say it all
Say it all
Just forget it, I can make it mind over matter
I can make you feel something better I don't want to be apart
And I said it, everything in life has an ending
Think of all the days we were spending hoping for a way to start
I came to make it right I hope to stay the night
You back away but it's already love
I know you think that I'm crazy because I can't stop calling you baby
And I know that you'll never break me because it's already love
Because it's already love
I'm a soldier, fight it but I know that I need it
Try to look away but I see it yeah, your body feels like home
Is it over? We don't have to wait on forever
We could go the wrong way together I just want to let you know
I came to make it right I hope to stay the night
You back away but it's already love
I know you think that I'm crazy because I can't stop calling you baby
And I know that you'll never break me because it's already love
Because it's already love
You know that look that you gave me Yeah it knocked me out but it saved me
And I don't quite know what I'm saying Because it's already love
Because it's already love
Feel it calling you back hoping for a little
Waiting for somebody to come and show you what to look for
Nothing can mistake my love
Everything you are is everything I wanted
Now I want to tell you, Oooh, now I want to tell you
I know you think that I'm crazy because I can't stop calling you baby
And I know that you'll never break me because it's already love
Because it's already love
You know that look that you gave me Yeah it knocked me out but it saved me
And I don't quite know what I'm saying because it's already love
Because it's already love
Every night when your fate will call Find a way and you take it all
What you got to do to make it In the times when I feel naked
And you take it all
It's driving me to heaven If you're brave enough to love it
And you leave me in the dark
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Every night my heart takes a toll Be my rock when I lose control
But you pull me through to fake it In the times when I can't take it
And you choose the door
But you came to win out of nowhere When you're by my side, you show it
And it makes me feel alive
Be my love, my calling to live for, to be my heart
It's all that I wait for, to be my own
It's more than you stood for to stop my fall
It's all that
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Be my home My calling to live for
To be my home It's all that I wait for
To be my home It's more than you stood for
To stop my fall It's all that I
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Baby when I come to get you I'm all I find
Every time I go to come back to see it's not my time
Every time I think of something it's on my mind
I tell you when it's all about you, I need you by my side
Oooh, oooh Oooh, oooh
I need you by my side
Oooh, oooh Oooh, oooh
I need you by my side
If we can go again, Getting to know what's right
Hoping that on my eyes everything.
You begged me to close my eyes
You begged me to not move on
Do you know that to take me there I don't care
You might be thinking a full life comes around and feels right, by my side
You might be thinking within that dream when it's all mine
In the bad times we can lie every day We can lay in wait
But it won't bring you back to me
We can lie every day We can lie any way
But it won't bring you back to me
I don't know if I let you go After what you meant to me
I won't go just to know I have something that I'll never give
We can lie every day We can lie anywhere
But it won't bring you back to me
Finding a place to hide Under the sheets with I
Starting to lose my mind with everything
We can lie every day We can lie in wait
But it won't bring you back to me
We can lie every day We can lie anywhere
But it won't bring you back to me
I don't know if I want you back After what you did to me
I won't go just to know I have something that I'll never give
We can lie every day We can lie anywhere
But it won't bring you back to me
Bring it back to me
Bring it back to me
Bring it back to me, back to me, back to me
There are nights that hold me back
Free me when I'm far from home Shut the light tomorrow's gone
Thank me when you're all alone Make a case for what's right
And then find me when you're never wrong, wrong, wrong
I don't know if I want you back After what you did to me
I won't go just to know I have something that I'll never give
We can lie every day We can lay anywhere
But it won't bring you back to me no
Bring it back to me
Back to me
Back to me
Thank you guys, so much.
I can be something more
Now I see what time is for, now I know how little I can hold
I can be what I'm shown, I will treasure what you know
I won't be the man who walks alone
You, I can make you love me, even when I take it all
And you, I can make you love me, I always do
Always is a word that I never say but I feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
Someday, when I feel like I'll never change
I wanna feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
I fill in the void in my mind feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
Always seems like no time tonight feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
You will question my will to take it all in stride
But I know my mind is on the line
If you leave, take with you, all the things you put me through
I don't need the burden to remind
You, I can make you love me, even when I take it all
And you, I can make you love me, I always do
Always is a word that I never say
But I feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
Someday, when I feel like I'll never change
I wanna feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
Feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
Always seems like no time tonight
Feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
I'm blown away, by the things I teach you
I found a way to bring up the past and run by to beat you
I'm blown away, do you think I feed you?
I kinda need you, I kinda need you
And I can make you love me
Even when the things you taught me break my heart
And I can make you love me make you love
Always is a word that I never say, never say
But I feel like, feel like, feel like tryin'
I feel like tryin'
Feel like, feel like tryin'
Always seems like no time tonight
Feel like, feel like, feel like trying
Feel like tryin'
Always seems like no time tonight
Feel like, I feel like tryin'
Thank you.
