Furlong, Hate Girls Review
Furlong brings us a solid alternative rock sound from Australia. The 4-piece band hit the scene in 2016 and has since been building an enthusiastic fan base. The members hail from around the world, brought together by their love of grunge and alternative rock. The members are Andrea McKenzie – vocals and guitar, JJ (Jonathon Jones) – bass, Tim White – lead guitar, and Raff Watt – drums. Furlong is hot off the success of their last single, “Eloquently,” which was released on 19 September 2019. “Eloquently,” tells the story of a one-sided relationship, with the storyteller willingly feeding the ego of the person they lust after. They are back with a new single titled, “Hate Girls.” With a pop-rock vibe that explores the emotion of “Being in the company of your enemies can be the most splendid adrenaline rush,” states Furlong.Positives: Blending just the right amount of grit, “Hate Girls” brings together a catchy melody, sustained guitars and thumping bass and drums. Bottom Line: Furlong’s new single “Hate Girls” bursts into a powerful pop-rock outpouring that is equally at home with an angsty teenager or hard-working Gen Xer. With the full-bodied grunge guitar supporting the well-written lyrics that cries out for the love of the people that you positively dislike. McKenzie’s attitudinal vocals bring the emotion of how your enemies can make you feel alive, and give you a rush of adrenaline. JJ and Watt keep the feel moving as White and McKenzie fill the guitar roles with confidence. McKenzie’s vocals sit perfectly in the mix, just peeking out enough to make you listen, but each lyric still rings brightly with her personality. The song form is solid and there is plenty of tension and release that builds to a climax. Furlong is undoubtedly one to keep an eye and ear on, and that’s the short of it!
