With the British outfit just finishing off a successful tour of China and still reaping high praise for their I Still Hate You EP released this past January pop punkers The Bottom Line spark off another seriously busy period by uncaging its title track as their new single.
The London quartet is poised to hit Canada and the US on tour alongside Simple Plan before undertaking a set of already sold out UK dates with US outfit Waterparks, all over the next month and a half. It is a period echoing an eight week period last year which, again with the Canadian band on their World Tour, saw The Bottom Line travel across 14 countries. I Still Hate You is the perfect spark to set things off, an attention grabbing slice of what is making the band one of the most potent propositions on the independent scene.
Unerringly catchy but with an irritability which swiftly gets its claws into the imagination, the single instantly has the hips swinging and body bouncing in tandem with its own aural animation. Spiky riffs infest the imagination as they spring from the initial melodic glaze cast by lead guitarist Tom Newton, their almost grouchy presence backed by the biting beats of Matt Bicker. The throaty grumble of Max Ellis’ bass adds to the pleasure and a predacious edge tempered nicely by the infectious vocal presence of guitarist Callum Amies, his inviting tones backed by the equally warm tones of Ellis.
As the track continues to boisterously stroll, offering plenty of enticing twists and turns along the way, a Hagfish like hue roars as a Blink 182 scent teases; flavouring when added to the band’s own creative tenacity has the body leaping and an appetite for move slavering.
As the last, this year has been and continues to be a busy one for The Bottom Line, I Still Hate You showing why it is also being a highly successful one.
