The Good FightBy thatch • Mar 23rd, 2009 • Category: Indie, Music, Pop, Rock
The Good Fight are a band from Coleraine in Northern Ireland (Jools and I have been there). It’s four dudes that are playing a highly commercial (and radio friendly -if there are still any radio stations left out there playing new music) brand of pop-rock.
The big sell is the vocals, this band is fairly flush with vocalists but it is Ben Robinson’s that is the stand out, and they have paid attention to the melody part of their music lessons. Their songs are catchy as hell (occasionally fashionably flat – but you can’t have everything). There is a download available of their song “Electric Flow“, that will showcase their strengths. It’s hosted at NICHART.COM
The line up is
Ben Robinson – Guitar/Vocals
Steven Gilpin – Guitar/Vocals
William Ritchie – Drums
Here is the video of “Glad You Know”…
They are incredibly slick, passionate and yes they obviously listen to U2 Radiohead and Coldplay, but then? Who doesn’t. I hope they are going to be around for awhile, it will be interesting to see where they go.
