Tough On Fridays Gives us A Genuinly Nostalgic Single
A new single from Tough On Fridays brings with it a refreshing and crisp but warming tonality in the form of a cinematic and heartfelt contemporary rock song that feels like it was genuine and came from someplace very real.
"Growing Pains" is quite a beautiful track that was built from emotional drive and it comes through with impact and it really has a way of making you think and feel.
It has this nostalgic vibe about it and I don't mean musically. It's more in the way that it makes you think back and as memories pop into your head you start to get the feelings they come with. And that is something music should do.
This single was woven with such a gracefulness to it and the music has a way of swimming around and keeping you afloat with it the entire time. When the song really starts hitting harder it becomes bigger and faster but hits the same way.
You feel the intensity and it all comes together so smoothly.
Vocals are performed with a passion and heart. Everything is really done with heart here and it shows clearly with every note.
The song feels very personal as well which only makes it more engulfing and it shines with presence and this authentic realness that you don't always get with music.
Only when you're lucky do you get such a perfectly nostalgic and real feeling aesthetic and it's something that sticks with you for quite some time.
"Growing Pains" seems like a song you can see in an emotionally intense scene of a film or a show. it has that theatrical and almost dramatic effect on you.
This was freeing in a way. It feels good to listen to it and we need more music that we can feel from. That makes us think back and remember things.
A wonderful single from Tough On Fridays showcases the band's ability to grab your attention and keep it there.
As a matter of fact, you may just find yourself wanting more.
