Oh the glory. Oh the madness. Oh the pop! In the best tradition of bands like Duran Duran, and INXS, the oozing of palpable musical sexiness and primal screams make this song just awesome. Yep. Awesome. Great News’ Never Get My Love is 2:47 minutes of fun-tabulous-ness.
And can you listen to the intro drums?
Yep. It’s delicious.
Also, the tinging and tanging of the guitar strings.
Yep. Delicious, again.
Then the vocals come into play: this is where the Duran Duran thing just kicks up a notch.
It’s not how the voice or the aesthetics of the band is even close to being like Duran Duran. It’s about the attitude and the ‘indescribable’ that GN brings to the table.
Fun, relatable, not too serious.
What this kind of pop music should be.
And surely has revealed itself to be, manifesting in ‘Never Get My Love’.
It’s a declaration.
An hommage to broken relationships.
A statue for what needs to be, and what hasn’t been done – yet.
All wrapped up in a silver and glimmering package.
We like Great News, a lot.
Kudos, Even / Kim / Ole. Kudos.
They’re rep’ed by label, Eget Selskap, in Norway.
