I like this better than Mene
There definitely isn't much to this song but I still enjoy it so far.
Thank you for the link Jason! I appreciate it.
Really like the song. Really looking forward to what's next.
This doesn't seem too weird to me though. I remember in an interview that Jesse had said there were two roads they could have taken after TDAGARIM, one being Daisy and then a phantom different route. I thought he made a reference to going back to that split and traveling the other road when the time for new music comes. Maybe I'm remembering wrong?
If that's the case, then I feel like this makes sense. Either way, new Brand New is always good!
I've never been a huge Brand New fan but this straight up sounds like an Alkaline Trio song to me
So I really like it
never heard of this band but it sounds good
Agreed. It's more melodic, less angry, and reminds me of "Archers," which was easily one of my favorite tracks off DaG. Also kinda reminds me of Kevin Devine's "Private First Class." I don't know if it's the meter or some of the melodies, but I'm so happy with this. I hope it's indicative of the full album.
We'll all like it more with time.
I could dig a catchy Brand New record, if this song and Mene are any indication of the overall sound of the album. I also kind of feel this album will be all over the place. There will definitely be some dark, sad songs on here for sure, this is Brand New we're talking about. I'm just so glad we're getting a new Brand New album (and a new Thrice album, and we got a new Radiohead album).
I like it. There's more to like with every listen. Exciting times!
lmfao the comment on the bandpage link
Am I alone in not wanting this to be Brand New's sound? Compared to songs like "Luca" this is garbage.
Now glassjaw needs to release a second new song.
Sounds like a cross between Alkaline Trio and REM. I was expecting a darker one, but I'm totally fine with this punk-ish side of theirs.
I'm a huge fan of that album and was hoping for that same dark sound too, but come on it's Brand New! I'd give them a free pass even if it wasn't what I'd hoped for. In fact I quite like this.
Maybe I'm ignorant but I never thought of Brand New as a post-hardcore band
haha definitely not but most sites that aren't deeply rooted in "the scene" will label bands "indie", "emo", or "post hardcore" randomly. I once saw Saves The Day labeled on a site as post hardcore so lol.
A Summer of new Glassjaw and Brand New records sounds like heaven.
It's one song man, who knows if this is the direction the whole cd goes in. It's okay to not enjoy this song, but we don't know what direction brand new is going with this album.
We should wait to hear the whole cd before making drastic judgements on their "sound".
I'm conflicted. This is my first reaction as well. However, I didn't like Daisy when it was first released and after I revisited it about a year or two later, it became my favourite Brand New album. So I'm going into this release with an open mind but I definitely don't like some of the vocal layering that brings it back to more Deja, feels like a regression. We'll see what the rest of the album sounds like before I make any sort of judgement. Even with my (minor) disappointment it's still a decent song, just not what I was expecting from Brand New after DAG and Daisy.
This is so, so bad. Ugh.
not really a fan. i have higher expectations for this band.
i feel like if any other band released this most people wouldn't even take a second listen. there's not much there.
I remember reading that as well.
Good song! I like it
