TUNE Jools - Almost Famous
Almost Famous celebrates the existence of powerful women. The narrative is personal, suggesting that I would give the world to the woman that changed mine forever.
The concept is far wider, with the title highlighting the ever-growing recognition for women within our society - our mother’s, daughter’s, sister’s, lovers. The song was inspired by historical women’s rights movements, such as ‘The Equal Rights’ and ‘Women’s Lives’ marches. The future is female, and I look forward to it.
JOOLS have introduced us with two impressive and riotous singles to date. The Leicester-based punk-rockers serve up a treat with their debut ‘Hysterical Starving Naked’ which offered excess fire-power that encapsulates the thesis of the band’s sound. Sending out their stance on socialism, the use of social media and their political values, ‘Hysterical Starving Naked’ demonstrates the true values of this band, and the second single ‘Spineless’ was no different.
The snarly vocals of singer ‘Mitchell Gordon echo the fuzzy & aggressively distorted guitar work, delivered with venom in a fearless manner of commitment. Keeping you on your toes from start to finish, the tempo changes and different rhythm arrangements jump in out of nowhere surrounded with a wall of sound, allowing the passionate chorus to shine through, it all adds up to pack one hell of a punch. Crunching, heavy-weight and emotion-filled performances from each band member live results in some of the most honest music you’ll have heard this year.
