Man, people are saying rock is dead, but with so many awesome up-and-coming bands like July Talk
, Nothing But Thieves
, Catfish and the Bottlemen
, and of course, Highly Suspect
, we're finding that pretty hard to believe. All of these bands have something in common: they make rock music that makes you feel something.
Highly Suspect's latest single, "Little One," off of their sophomore album The Boy Who Died Wolf,
out November 18th, packs an emotional punch (but really, which Highly Suspect song doesn't do that?). The verses remain sparse, with vocals, drums, and minimal guitar -- that is, until the chorus kicks in. The guitars strum out an electrifyingly dark and gritty progression, the raspy vocals reminiscent of Caleb Followill are drenched with emotion while somehow emitting an "I don't give a f*ck" attitude. Drums clash. The bass throbs. Our hearts ache.
Every single released off of the upcoming album has been good so far, so this is a highly-anticipated one for sure.
