Release Date: 2nd February 2018
Label: Sound Hub Records
Hailing originally from Andover, One Last Thrill have been going about their business ummm…well…not quietly by any stretch, but on the ‘down low’ as I’m fairly certain ‘the kids’ are calling it these days. Enough of my top notch understanding of outdated slang, this quartet have been simmering away but 2018 could be the year they come to the boil and new single ‘Face It’ is one bloody good reason for this.
The first single release since 2016’s ‘If Leaving Was An Option’ takes all the positives from that track and ramps them up. At just 2 and a half minutes it crams in soulful vocals, punchy drums and guitars and just about as much foot tapping, head nodding rock and concentrates it all into a track that by the time it finishes leaves you craving more, all while pleading to be turned up loud enough to wake the neighbour’s neighbours.
This is the first we’ve heard from the band for a couple of years and whilst that is sad, it’s good that they’re concentrating on putting out quality over quantity. With only a couple of dates announced for the year so far I would highly recommend getting on to the band and demanding they come and play near you!
