West Midlands quartet Five O Fives bring us their sophomore single, “Something To Do”. The Indie Rock band received great praise for their debut single last year (“Through The Darkness”) and have great plans for 2021, with this track being just the first of many releases planned.
The single is about “going out and having fun with your friends, drinking a little too much and maybe regretting it a bit the next day” – something I’m sure many of us wish we could experience during this strange time.
Opening with a funky guitar hook, the track is instantly likeable and that’s before it really gets going. The vocals from singer Alice Bloor are at the forefront of the song and immediately grab your attention as she guides you through the story. Despite the somewhat dispiriting lyrics, the other aspects making up this work are very upbeat and positive sounding.
The guitar solo in the bridge accompanied by the smashing drums have my foot tapping as I listen. This section adds another layer to an already great song making it a fantastic listen.
“Something To Do” is a sort of amalgamation of different genres, fusing features of indie rock with elements of dream pop creating an extremely catchy tune that you will want to dance to. Perfect for the live setting… and hopefully that can happen again soon!
In their short career they have managed to play at the Actress & Bishop in Birmingham and a sold out show at The Tin in Coventry. Very impressive considering there has not been any gigs in quite some time. These guys are ones to watch.
