WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE FOREVER NOW – GROUNDED SATELLITES

Straight outta Copenhagen, THE FOREVER NOW crash onto the indie rock scene like a pack of Viking invaders armed with synths and a penchant for catchy hooks. Their latest single, “Grounded Satellites,” is a sonic rollercoaster that’ll make you want to dance like no one’s watching.

The track kicks off with an infectious synth riff that hits you like a burst of cold Danish air – invigorating, unexpected, and likely to leave you with a few goosebumps. It’s as if they’ve bottled the essence of European pop synth and sprinkled it over their indie rock foundation.

Grounded Satellites is the kind of anthem that takes you through the streets of Copenhagen, weaving through indie alleys and synth boulevards. The band’s blend of influences, reminiscent of MGMT and The Naked and Famous, is evident in every chord and beat. It’s like a musical lovechild conceived during a secret rendezvous between the two bands in a smoky Danish basement.

The chorus is the undeniable highlight – a euphoric explosion of sound that hits you like a wave of energy drinks at a post-punk disco. If you’re not singing along by the time it hits, you might want to check if your pulse is still intact.

Speaking of connections, kudos to THE FOREVER NOW for roping in Aaron Short of The Naked and Famous for the mix. It’s like getting a Michelin-star chef to cook your instant noodles – unnecessary, but undeniably delicious. The production is slicker than a well-oiled bicycle chain, and Short’s touch adds that extra layer of sonic finesse.

Navigating through “Grounded Satellites” isn’t without its bumps. The eclectic mix of indie rock and synth pop might leave some listeners feeling like they’ve stumbled into a genre buffet and aren’t quite sure which dish to pile their plates with. It’s a musical smorgasbord that might be an acquired taste for some.

THE FOREVER NOW’s “Grounded Satellites” is a Danish delight that proves Scandinavia isn’t just known for hygge and sleek furniture. It’s an explosive indie synth rock anthem that demands attention and deserves a spot on your playlist. So, grab your headphones, unleash your inner Viking, and let THE FOREVER NOW take you on a whirlwind journey through the synthy streets of Copenhagen. Skål!
