Aberdeen rock quartet Cold Yeahs have released a new single and video ahead of their anticipated debut album Paradise, out in September and available on cd, streaming and lovely rose and clear vinyl.
Of the track, the bands frontman Ross Gordon says Too Far Gone came from being in a pretty bad place, not knowing what the future was going to hold and being alone…I’d pushed partying too hard and I felt like I was just wasting my time. You get to that point where you just give up trying because everything falls to shit regardless. We come from a small town and I couldn’t stand to be in the same room as all the same people, I just wanted to be alone and didn’t want to talk to anyone.
I needed to release all those emotions from everything that had happened to me up until that point, I guess you have to write these kinds of songs, being in this band is a cathartic process for all of us. I’ve always felt like a lot of the songs on this record were about things that were gonna come in the future, this song was me looking deep into how I was feeling at the time and using it to escape.”
It’s the kind of melancholy but ultimately uplifting slice of modern rock that pulls you along with its singalong melodies and punch guitar riffs, sailing close to Scottish contemporaries such as Idlewild and Biffy Clyro, which let’s face it, is no bad thing at all.
