The Bottom Line – I Still Hate You

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.

The Bottom Line – Pull Me Out

the-bottom-line _RingMasterReview

Ahead of their new EP, I Still Hate You due for release at the beginning of 2017, British pop punksters The Bottom Line have released a rousing teaser in the shape of their new single. Pull Me Out is a seriously catchy and boisterous affair which tops off a rather eventful and successful year for the London band.

Formed in 2011, The Bottom Line has increasingly made their presence known within the UK pop punk scene with the past year seeing the outfit release two well received singles in Insecure and the-bottom-line-i-still-hate-you-art _RingMasterReviewPlaylist, open for Bowling For Soup in Ireland, play Facedown, be part of sold shows as main support to Room 94, and venture through fourteen countries alongside Simple Plan. Now to end the year on a high, we have Pull Me Out, a track which takes no time in accosting ears with spirit raising enterprise.

From its first breath, melody bound riffs and rampant rhythms enjoyably impose, their instant catchiness just the prelude to the song’s broader body of feisty textures and inescapable infectiousness. With strong vocals egging on and potently sharing the eager heart of the song, it is soon a tenacious union of sinewy basslines, swinging beats, and a host of tempting hooks and biting riffs.

It is probably fair to say that the song weaves its body with familiar spices and textures, their recent French-Canadian tour mates springing to mind with ease, but there is a freshness and distinctive zeal to the encounter which reeks of more distinctive promise and simply sparks an inquisitively hungry appetite for the band’s sound and future propositions, starting with the upcoming I Still Hate You EP.

A foot to the floor rocker of a track, the single is the sign that 2017 may very well exceed this in the band’s rise.

Pull Me Out is available now.
