No More Good News
The thing I like about this song is the guts that are needed to record this.
The vocals pack a punch from the beginning, lovely alto tone that make me feel really warm inside… all against a backdrop of gutsy punk rock grooves… the harmonies in the chorus are really speaking to me.
“The curtains calling, that velvet cloud is coming down
The third acts over, the encore will have to go down the street
To a bar where we’ll meet for a drink-Can fill you up or pour you out…”
Pure theatrics in that…
But this is where the gold is:
“There’s no more songs worth singing,
There’s no more hearts worth breaking,
Feet don’t- No don’t you fail me now.”
It’s they way that this is sung that really appeals to me, and Jojo And The Teeth shine.
Their website is brilliant, they are a London based quintet fronted by Canadian Jojo Donoghue who found herself in the U.K. and decided to put together a band with some English boys which apparently was no easy feat.
