Goodbye Again release debut single “Rum and Coke”
Goodbye Again don’t need an introduction. Ripping through their first-ever live set at Haus of Yarga Sunday night, you could feel the floor shaking as people pushed and shoved in a sweat-drenched mosh pit. Ending with a Weezer cover that sent the crowd into a frenzy, as everyone left the basement they knew they had witnessed something special. The band’s first single, “Rum and Coke” embodies the same undeniable talent and sheer brilliance.
A much-needed dose of midwest emo from the east coast, the band resembles a young Modern Baseball or Joyce Manor. Still, whether you’re watching them live or listening to their fuzz-drenched new single, there’s something inexplicable about them. Whether it’s their unabashed punk approach or earnest delivery, they possess some sort of magic you can’t quite pinpoint. A vicious bassline and crashing percussion round out the track as vocalist Jonny McLeod half-shouts a chorus written about the show Invincible. Tearing it up in just over two minutes it’s hard to believe it’s their first (and only) release.
