Against The Current have no problem stealing our hearts with their infectious music. Their new single ‘”good guy”‘ is no exception to this phenomenon! We officially dedicate this track to every person who has ever fooled us into thinking they’re on our side when they never were. Ouch to the highest extent, but at least we have Against The Current to rely on!
With lines like “I’m lethal and too proud, won’t quit ’til I’ve cut you down” and “I used to hate you, now I think you’re sad” this track covers a range of emotions. Grieving a lost connection has so many stages, and sometimes one of those stages is inevitably pity. Chrissy said this track is “all about going from anger to apathy, recognizing that this person that hurt you is too sad to hate.”
We love that Against The Current is reminding their fans to listen to their instincts. Sometimes we get a little too caught up in our hearts rather than our heads. But can you blame us? We are ‘Closer, Faster’ stans after all.
‘”good guy”‘ is simply joining our lineup of Against The Current songs we need to force everyone we know to listen to. We only just finished sharing their last release, ‘blindfolded (acoustic)’ with all our friends!
One of our favorite things about ATC is the way they have a song for every emotion we feel. ‘blindfolded’ makes us feel seen, understood, and heard. Sometimes the biggest pain in the world is the knowledge you carry about it. Having ‘blindfolded’ makes that weight lighter and we owe that to the masterminds that are Against The Current.
Now, as if they haven’t given us enough lately, Against The Current is about to hit the road for their headlining Nightmares & Daydreams US Tour! The tour is kicking off in Florida and making its rounds across America before it wraps up back on the East Coast. We’re losing our minds over the setlist variations we could possibly get. As long as we get ‘again & again‘ we’ll be chill about everything else.
