What the?! What is this band named Forever Cult?? That’s what we thought when we listened to them. Why? Just listen to them. Yea, right? The combination of presentation and notes, coupled with the punk-like-vocals just is a throwback; however, very progressive. No? We think so, anyhow.
The song is ‘Usurper’, and the Leeds, England based quartet is a twist on the old story.
“Usurper is a cold observation of a night out. The lyrics are about my surroundings and the different feelings and thoughts i had as the night progressed…” – KK.
While they might be a new sound to us here at CHF, they’d recently supported Fizzy Blood on UK tour, Live At Leeds, Hit The North (unannounced) and select shows with Queen Zee (unannounced) – with potential dates with Demob Happy.
We know, we know. Forever cult is cut from the emo-alt-rock cloth, but it’s NOT. They are more dynamic and fluid with their music than it initially appears. And the best example is this single, which has the rock/heavy/rock riffs that demands attention, but delivers the punk related efforts, layered with the indie-pop levity that we all can agree makes it doubly interesting.
“We’ve been quiet for a little while but it’s taken time to develop our sound again. New songs are coming thick and fast in a totally different way to usual. We’re writing all together in a practise room jamming out ideas more than before. It’s really exciting all over again and has really given us a new lease of life”- Alex
The flat notes just makes it cool, and the bridge on this one just is fab to follow.
Follow it. It brings you some goodies at the end of the song.
Cool sh*t, we say.
Anywho, an EP is in the works for later this year.
