Best Bets Drops Whataworld Single
New Zealand’s Best Bets are prepping the release of their forthcoming On An Unhistoric Night, and with that cycle comes a brand new single. Somehow, the band feels like they’re channeling Ted Leo, though mixed up in a sort of fuzzy power-pop blender. The chords definitely have some punch, but they feel rounder on the edges, and perhaps less punk influenced, which delivers this rising melody that gets matched by the way the vocals are delivered. Still, the song’s a frantic jam, with guitars rising and falling and rising again, constantly crashing against your speakers time and time again. If you dig, the new LP will be out in April via Meritorio Records and Melted Ice Cream.
