Norwegian indie pop trio Great News share ‘Told’.
Whilst ‘Told’ is hazy in nature, it could also be categorised as a modern power ballad – a gentle nod to the 80’s and 90’s indie rock, full of boundless guitar riffs and rollicking vocals.
Speaking of the track, Great News say,
“Growing up today, we are repeatedly told to focus on the future, have kids, get married and earn lots of money to achieve true happiness, like that’s the only way of solving the puzzle of life,” they share of the song’s concept. “Fuck that. Do what you want, not what you’re told.”
They play The Shacklewell Arms in London on January 25 and ‘Told’ is taken from their debut album, ‘Wonderfault’, out now.
