This band is like a little jingle you cannot get out of your head. Get Cubs are a four-piece from Staffordshire, England who pull you in with light and intriguing melodies that will make you feel great. I have been listening to Get Cubs for a couple hours this morning, and that’s only with the main five tracks they have available thus far! They have a light and clean sound, but each song still has an edge with joyous harmonies and guitar riffs.
My favourite one so far, Colour Blue, is quite addictive! I’ve found myself singing it around the house or playing it loudly while writing in my room. I believe that’s the perfect test to find out whether or not you’ve got a good song… If you find yourself singing it over and over and the hook is right on, then it’s a keeper! And Get Cubs passed that test!
Their sound in this song is quite reminiscent of The Wombats. Josh, Get Cub’s lead vocalist, has a similar tone in his voice to the vocalist of The Wombats’, Matthew Murphyith; the subtle falsetto and evoking authentic voice are both displayed in most of their songs. With the dashing “whoo whoo”s ringing in the background and the charming harmonies, they tie together to create nice additions to the track.

Another song I like a lot would have to be Plastic Parade. There is such a fresh vibe that flows through this whole tune. A gentle guitar riff opens the song and then out of nowhere- the song is given so much life! Watching the video for the first time, I found the expressions on each band-members’ face to be priceless. Everyone looks like they’re having a goofy and swell time, and this really translates into their music. Each track has a fun, enjoyable and entertaining tone to it. The band is able to express their youth and vibrancy while still maintaining to produce a serious and splendid track. Now, I believe that’s a good combo!
