It didn’t surprise me when I noticed that the alternative rock band Everywhere have worked with the American producer Mark Needham – who has worked with big groups such as The 1975, The Killers and Imagine Dragons. Now, as Everywhere release their new single, Some Other Dude, there’s wonderful similarities between them and Matt Healy’s band.
At the heart of the song is a pulsing bass guitar riff and a memorable chant-like chorus. Both of these elements combine to form a vibrant funk-pop anthem which really stands out in a heavily dominated alternative/pop scene.
There’s always something exciting about witnessing an up-and-coming band hitting the mainstream music scene. Already, Everywhere have supported The Kaiser Chiefs and appeared at the NME Awards in 2013. As with every Musical Discovery, finding a track you love is amazing, but finding a new band to listen to is even better.
Three years ago, they released their debut EP, American Grandeur, so you can expect some songs from that release making an appearance on the blog very soon. Alongside Some Other Dude, Shades at Night is another track I’ve been listening to lately, and would definitely recommend.
