Birmingham alt-rockers Five O Fives are back again with their first release of 2022 ‘I Came Around’.
Fronted By Alice Bloor, the track kicks itself to life with an Arctic Monkeys-meets-Royal Blood esc riff before truly hammering itself onto the airwaves. The song is certainly an example of how a wall of sound can be used to propel a track forward as the pummeling drums and sharp, cutting guitar lines make the song truly shine.
Speaking about the creation of the track, Bloor commented how she crooned the ups and downs of the world of relationships into the penned lyrics for this single stating “You got attached and then distracted over nothing but a kiss”, which perfectly sums up the direction that this song is aiming to take.
The main highlight of this track is its irresistible ear worm of a chorus, with a melody that will not leave your head no matter how hard you try. Five O Fives certainly have a single they should be very proud of here.
‘I Came Around’ is out now, with the quartet’s debut EP scheduled for release later in the year.
