Everybody’s With You is one of the single’s of the week on IndieLondon.co.uk this week. Here’s a review of the single….
THE WORDS – EVERYBODY’S WITH YOU: Manchester four-piece The Words release their new single, Everybody’s With You ahead of the Truth & Faith LP that’s due to follow on November 14. The band pride themselves on hitting a musical vibe that embraces the sensibilities of two of their favourite bands, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and James, and evidence of both is here in the lead single and its B-side, My Receiver. Of the two, Everybody’s With You offers more of a statement of intent… unfolding amid Steven Draper’s no-nonsense vocals and lyrics (“I’m a liar, I’m a liar”) and building towards a powerful, BRMC-influenced chorus. The guitar work, too, is pretty darn good. But they show a tender side on B-side My Receiver, that’s similarly assured and more in keeping with the emotion-filled song-writing of James. It’s an acoustic offering that gradually layers in the elements and which offers a moving contrast to the power they exhibit on the lead single. It would seem this band is poised to go places.
