It’s good to see this Indie rock band from the states back in the early 2000s came into the mainstream just a few years back. They’re a huge success in most countries outside their home country. They’ve recently conquered the British and Australian music scene with their single “Sex On Fire” reaching #1 and as well as their latest LP “Only By The Night” which is currently selling great and is off to a platinum status. They’re set to release single #2 “Use Somebody” which is since making it’s stay in the top 40 since “Sex On Fire” based on downloads alone. Now, they’re going to release it as a single and i’m pretty sure it might not get the same acclaim that “Sex on Fire” did.
It does have its highs and lows but I’m currently pleased on the highs. One, it’s much pleasing as “Sex On Fire”. Two, it’s inevitably on the same track as Kings of Leon would do- arena type music. Three, it really sounded good live. Four, it’s impenetrable lyrical composition adequately complements the song. Five, It has qualities for a huge radio hit.
The lows, are somehow disappointing but minimal. One, it might not have the same success as “Sex On Fire” had. Two, it’s melody isn’t that much original. Three – NONE.
Anyways, the single is out on December 8 so better download it.
