Anything that has the quality to make me flail my arms around is bound to be good. Except if it’s a spider that’s landed on my back. I’ve got a huge fear of spiders, and one time there was a huge one scuttling around my bedroom and at one point it was on my being. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but it was not a very nice experience. ‘Alone By Your Side’ is the new single from The Creature Comfort, and it is the opposite of a spider on your foot. It’s dead good.
With fast-paced guitar riffs and off-kilter grooves aplenty, The Creature Comfort deliver something that’s full of bite but also full of charm too. There’s something about it’s scrappiness that helps tip it over the edge into being one of the catchiest songs of the year. There’s a real vibe of The Hives about it too, which just appeals to the ears even more. What a tune.
