Today’s song is Lonely Again” by The Good Wives.
The Seattle-based band started as lead singer Jacob Bruggman’s solo project. After merging with local guitarists Nicholas Alexander and Shane Berg, the project quickly developed into a full-fledged band. Following the release of two notable EPs within two years, drummer Brent Nelson joined the trio solidifying the full line-up. Having recently finished recording their debut full-length record, Bruggman remarks, “it feels as if we’ve finally found our voice as a band.”
The indie-rock quartet whose noisy, hook-filled guitars and infectious positive energy have been steadily captivating hearts in dive bars, theaters, and arcades across the Pacific Northwest. The East Portland Blog hails their “catchy, melodic pop tunes,” while Alison from the indie-music blog Abduction Radiation declares, “their songs just make me want to dance.”
This is the lead track from the band’s debut album Robot Island out now. The song captures the anxious energy of needing to start anew, backed by the band’s Neon Vibe sound that creates an atmosphere that puts you in the position of protagonist.
This is indie-rock at its finest. The track is a catchy radio worthy single that brandishes an achingly beautiful guitar riff and evokes a yearning to start anew. This sizzling song will engage the listener with its hazy guitars and Bruggman’s distinctive, enticing vocals.
The Good Wives are a band that should be on your radar.
