Conjuring up scenes of boozy summertimes down by Camden Lock, The New Twentys unleash their new single ‘You Got Me Good’
There’s a welcoming sunny disposition throughout ‘You Got Me Good’, the new single by London-based trio The New Twentys. Conjuring up scenes of boozy summertimes down by Camden Lock, their upbeat indie-pop sound induces an aura of jaunty fun. With raw punk sensibilities, a new spin on the current wave of jangly-guitar-driven bands is served up and it warmly fills the air with a longing for a more optimistic-looking future.
Frontman Jimmy, with Jarvis Cocker, meets Joey Ramone-like vocals, commands lyrical navigation of the peculiarities of romance, relationships, and hankering infatuation. ‘You Got Me Good’ makes peace with the fact that sometimes innocently being under another’s spell can be the sweetest and most playful of things. Its uplifting choruses and buoyant melodies presents ‘You Got Me Good’ as definitely a contender for a Summer hit, and with their apparent suitcase full of ready-to-go singles it looks like it won’t be the only release this year.
Their refreshing sound plates up an exciting banquet of ’70s like British ambience, (it’s impossible to not be reminded of the Clash’s midway poppier work) whilst sitting comfortably in the canon of modern indie and with nods from BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, The New Twentys likeable persona and distinct feel will certainly take them far.
