Nashville based rock band, The Criticals are back with new electrifying new single, ‘High Life Clinic’. The track is high powered with its guitar melodies and consistent drums that create the foundation of the track. The overall vibe reminds me of some old school rock from the early 2000s. It sounded like a classic. The lead vocals are so insane, he can make them intense and chill in a matter of seconds so effortlessly you don’t even notice.
Speaking on the track, they said, “This is a fight song. We wrote and tracked this song live in a cabin in Turtletown, TN. We airbnbed a cabin deep in the Ocoee wilderness with 2 gallons of wild turkey our studio gear and an engineer for three days to write and record. This was the first song we finished: High Life Clnic. We were away from our lives in the city and looking for trouble in the East TN mountains, so we wrote this song about a night that we were craving.”
Parker and Cole had played music together in a stream of bands in the Nashville DIY scene for nearly a decade, before deciding to join forces. They set their sites on creating a band built on youth, honesty, and lust for life, putting out a stream of singles throughout 2019. Since the release of the band’s first single, “Homebody,” The Criticals have been able to attract global attention. With articles from Earmilk, Popdust, Brooklyn Vegan, and Come Here Floyd, the band has not only been able to captivate their DIY roots but also music critics alike. Their much-anticipated debut EP is coming November 8, 2019. I need more form this band. They make me want to pull out my air guitar and start going in.
