Based in Tallahassee, FL, modern rock group The Brown Goose is putting a retro, alternative spin on today’s quintessential rock sound. This group hit the ground running – after the release of their debut EP Tails from the Mini-City in 2016, The Brown Goose started touring the southeast US, allowing their repertoire of cover tunes to serve as the building blocks for their stage show and influences for their next album. This week, they’re releasing a new single titled Apocalyptic Love Song, and if what we’ve said above has piqued your interest, get ready to be blown out of the water, as this is a stellar composition.
A melodic, dark electric guitar sets the tone for the track, before opening up for more complex rhythmic parts to take over. Rapid fire drum fills and a punchy bass make way for the vocals, a smooth but evocative tone that lends just the right amount of urgency and feeling to the track.
Arriving at the chorus, there’s just a hint of pop-punk influence in the execution, the tension in the melody, strong harmonies, and the driving beat just slightly reminiscent of many much-loved bands of the early 2000’s. But this is still a definitively modern rock track, and the powerful chorus is a testament to that.
Top things off with a ripping guitar solo at 3:49, followed by a slightly stripped down chorus that really puts this group’s strong vocals – both lead and harmony – on display, and this track has everything you could want in a both fresh-but-familiar alternative rock track.
From the band’s performance in this single, we get the feeling that The Brown Goose has a powerhouse of a live show, and when our live music scene starts returning to normal, those of you even remotely close to northern Florida might want to keep an eye out for this explosive group. Apocalyptic Love Song is premiering on Isotopia Records this Friday, November 27th. You can pre-save it here, or be sure to check your favorite music streaming platforms for this energetic, vibrant, rock ‘n roll tune on release day.
