Great News - new single 'Special Place'
Since we just recently introduced Great News to you, we thought it would be a great idea to follow up with a few words on their newest single ‘Special Place’. The release follows the Norwegian bands successful debut in London at KOKO in April, and precedes some big Norwegian festival appearances over the summer including Øya Festival, Bergenfest and Skral Festival.
'Special Place' fits with their previous releases, but maybe due to the upcoming summer, has a slightly lighter and brighter feeling to it. Like summer, it makes you relax, feel spirited and take a deep breath at the same time.
The music seems to be alive, growing with you and fits with emotions and feelings so logically it is incredibly well written. Having listened to a lot indie genre recently, there is this unique presence about Great News, which they yet again have found and captured perfectly through their music.
You will find yourself drawn closer to the song lyrics as well, with the song referencing the story of a someone the singer knew at school who became addicted to drugs and took an overdose at 16 . It is therefore powerful for both the listener and the artist.
With an album already being planned for 2017, and many more big live gigs booked, I can probably just quote the single 'Special Place' itself, which the says ‘the best is yet to come’.
