Single Review: 'S[care]d' by Hivemind
Awesome supergroup Hivemind have released their new single 'S[care]d', and this rocking banger made us even more aware of the thriving music scene we have up here.
Talents are hidden everywhere, but Hivemind have revealed themselves and jumped into the spotlight with their uplifting, gripping sound which features a mixture of rock, punk and a dash of metal.
The band first got our attention with the release of their debut album in 2018 but now, with a fresh lineup, the band is full of confidence and potential that is clearly on display with the release of ‘S[care]d’.
Vocalist Georgia said the single was released on the premise that “people these days, myself included, are often scared to care or show their true feelings, especially when it comes to relationships. Everyone is afraid of getting hurt and, as a result, people often play games, omit the truth and are vague about what it is they actually want.” This song works perfectly as the antithesis to this plight, encouraging bravery and openness instead which is a commendable goal that is well and truly achieved.
With a more pop-like sound than earlier singles, this broadens the horizon of Hivemind and opens the gates for even more potential fans.
Catchy drumbeats combined with shredding riffs ease listeners into Hivemind’s art. Switching between foot tapping and wolf-like howling, the band knows how to keep their music interesting.
With a headline show at the O2 Academy on Friday the 30th of August and a lot of new songs yet to be released, the band’s hands are twitching to get on the musical road again and no doubt will continue to release more and even better new music in the future.
