Waiting for the debut album of the Goodtime Boys felt like an eternity. And as it turns out it was worth waiting: ‚Rain‚ not only keeps the promises a number of EPs made since 2011, but elevates tehir qualities onto the next level. With outstanding songs like ‘Wallflower‘, ‘Life Moves‘, ‘Cloudbursts‘ or ‘Downpour‘ and songwriting that succeeds in expressing aggressiveness without losing a keen sense for grand melodies, with a spacious sound that sets itself apart from the genres sameyness, and lyrics that crawl beneath the skin. Hardcore can be so beautiful.

We played a real fun basement show with these guys in New Jersey back on Loma tour in 2013, i’ve followed them ever since. great record, sounds like a more indie Brand New.

Only heard this record last week and loved it, really different from their over stuff, It’s like 90’s Dark Indie meets Screamo.

Love the guitar tones on this record, some of the leads sound like they could be on ‚(What’s the Story) Morning Glory‚ which is a great thing!
Lana Del Ray – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00KC9GPCG“ target=“_blank“ ]Ultraviolence[/amazon_link]‘
