New Brooklyn-based heartthrobs, never (lowercase ‘n’) have released their debut album Cloudy via Money Fire Records.
The title track of Cloudy welcomes you like a punch in the face. It catches you off guard and as you stumble backwards, the song drops, and the melancholic lyrics creep in. The song travels through emotions provoked by the past to a sense of uncertainty, leaving the listener wanting more.
Never allows you to escape. As I’m writing this, I’m drinking coffee in a boring, bland room. I can find a type of bliss from the songs. In my opinion, good songs allow you to escape and feel something. And never has succeeded in doing just that.
Slow Sun, a departure from it’s energetic predecessors. The song resonates with me, allowing me to look at my life and see what’s becoming of it. Introspective lyrics, expressing the belief of taking in account of what is already around you and not fixating on impossible goals for materialistic means. A true statement when trying to explain DIY to someone who can’t comprehend the idea of free expression and having faith in supporting each other.
The vocals leave you with a bitter-sweet aftertaste after listening to her pour heart out with gloomy, crestfallen lyrics. Anyone with a distressed heart will keep wanting more and more.
Never is compromised of Scott Fitzpatrick (of Living Room), Leanne Butkovic, and Chris Marchini.
