WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM HOLLYWOOD POPS & THE DATA – CALL ME WHAT YOU WILL
Rising up from the Northwest music scene is Hollywood Pops & the Data – an electrifying alt-rock outfit consisting of larger-than-life frontman Pops and his exceptionally talented backing ensemble the Data.
The past few months have seen this group captivate fans with infectious new tunes and critically acclaimed performances, proving their undeniable status as rockstars while catapulting them to new heights. Call Me What You Will is one of the newest additions to the band’s discography. With a deep understanding of what makes a great song, it’s a testament to their infallibility in producing timeless originals.
It begins with a jangly guitar loop comparable to those of the Smiths. However, basic comparisons become amiss when Pop’s compelling vocals override the track. His voice, packed with passion, makes for an emotive and convincing delivery of the descriptive lyrics that launch listeners into the centre of the action.
Not once does the song give in to its high-octane force, driving from start to end. The Data’s instrumentation is relentless to mirror Pop’s words masterfully. It’s even topped off with an insanely catchy hook, crafted to grab attention and retain it right to the final note. And it does just that.
It seems big things are coming for Hollywood Pops & the Data, as they continue to build their repertoire and get ready to take on global endeavours. Join over 13,000 other listeners by streaming Call Me What You Will , along with their latest single Burn It Down.
