The Other Ones Share New Single “Forever Young” Out Now Via Reckless Yes
London power-pop four-piece The Other Ones release their second single from their debut album with Forever Young, out now via Reckless Yes.
Channelling ‘90s alt-rock and bubblegum punk the track blends the track is filled with yearning, and through catchy melodic lines has all the sharp-edged nostalgia of Upset, or Diet Cig.
About single The Other Ones the band said, “Forever Young is a song about yearning – about wanting to run away from a humdrum existence, going for a drive with your best friend, throwing caution to the wind, and living for yourself. It’s hard to capture that feeling of limitless wonder from childhood, but when you have the right person with you, anything feels possible.”
This instant raw tone resonates hard from the first introduction into the instrumentation for “Forever Young”. The raw tone is set to impress as the integral guitar notes devour the track, the colossal but collected drum hits then come into focus reinforcing the striking sounds projected, before the intoxicating vocals join the baronial atmosphere.
The Other Ones embrace this lyrical maturity in this exploration, showcasing such honest feelings we’ve all experienced. Their heightened musical direction seemingly captures this attachment to holding onto your youth, that freedom we relished but also accepting the change and maturing whilst still keeping character. The Other Ones have perfected this far-reaching composition with a deep message at its core, a message we can all relate to.
As we’ve said before, The Other Ones are an act that play by their own rules, each track they’ve teased from their forthcoming album have been unique, captivating, and each more powerful in their own way. “Forever Young” fuses this free essence found with influences of heroic 70s/80s status melded with the dynamic songwriters we experienced in the early 00s, The Other Ones utilize these key inspirations to produce this hard-hitting yet emotive number. Showcasing another facet to the diverse yet crucial terrain that The Other Ones dextrously deliver.
The Other Ones harness their attitude and their punk roots to create music with such intrigue, such force and an emotional vortex. They create music with chaos but also comfort.
The debut album is hot on its heels of single Forever Young, with a digital and limited CD release on 26 February 2021.
