“Got No Love” by The Criticals sounds like a modern classic rock daydream. It’s got some teenage angst and a southern swagger. The Nashville duo just dropped their debut EP Mimosa Hygiene and it is clearly aimed for the hearts of disenfranchised millennials. The descending melodic line that floats of the familiar E D A chords makes for a casual fun listen. I can almost hear the sound of glasses clinking the background of a busy restaurant during Sunday brunch but I know I’m just imagining this, maybe that is what The Criticals intended. Stream “Got No Love” below and give them some love on their socials as well as read their artist biography!
The Criticals are a Nashville based rock band formed by Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart in 2018. The band focuses on energy, first and foremost, looking to The Stone Roses, Janes Addiction, and The Doors for inspiration. Parker and Cole had played music together in a stream of bands in the Nashville DIY scene for nearly a decade, before deciding to join forces. They set their sites on creating a band built on youth, honesty, and lust for life, putting out a stream of singles throughout 2019. Since the release of the band’s first single, “Homebody,” The Criticals have been able to attract global attention. With articles from Earmilk, Popdust, Brooklyn Vegan, and Come Here Floyd, the band has not only been able to captivate their DIY roots but also music critics alike. Their much anticipated debut EP is coming November 8, 2019. So, in the words of Earmilk, “keep an eye out for this electrifying band.”
