When the good life came, it was a huge deal.
After a decade in which the band’s sound had been mostly under-appreciated, Good Life came out with a full-blown new album, and its popularity exploded.
Now, it’s a big part of the UK’s music scene, and in the process, its members have found themselves on top of the charts in their own right.
Good Life have also been part of major pop acts like Rihanna, Lorde, and Taylor Swift, and have even become a fixture at festivals.
Now the band are heading back into the spotlight with the release of their latest record, Good Live.
In the new single, the band make a triumphant return to the high-energy rhythms of their first full-length, and the first time they’ve had an album of its kind in years.
“I am a good life,” they sing, “I love to see you happy, I love to watch you live, I’m the good one, I am the good thing.
You are the good.”
The song is one of the most uplifting, emotional songs the band have written since the last Good Life album.
It’s a powerful statement for a band that had previously taken the music of The Rolling Stones and Prince very seriously, and this song is no different.
On the same track, Good Love’s lead singer, Taylor Bennett, sings of wanting to make a change, to “put on my headphones and go out and make a difference.”
“We’re a new band,” she sings, “we’re a little different from Good Life.”
This is a record that, while still very much about Good Life, could be called a follow-up to the band that made them famous.
The new album is still as fun and funky as the previous one, but the songs are much heavier, more focused, and more intimate.
The band has also added a few more guest artists to the mix, including singer-guitarist Dan Pomeroy and singer-songwriter and producer Scott Weiland, who’s worked with Taylor on songs like the title track and “Lovers Don’t End.”
It’s also a very different take on Good Life’s previous songs, which was often about getting laid.
The album is a departure from the more acoustic approach the band had taken on previous albums, which has also made for some of the darker songs.
The new record feels like a big step forward, and it sounds like it’s going to be a big hit.
It may not be the band you know or care about, but you will definitely be glad you’ve listened to it.
