If you’re wearing a vintage t-shirt, tight jeans, can name one hundred indie bands off the top of your head and The Rogues aren’t one of them yet – well the Welsh five piece would like to introduce themselves to you with their new single Nice To Say Hello. They’ve been relentlessly gigging on the indie scene so have a word because friends shouldn’t be keeping The Rogues a secret.
Nice To Say Hello brings that comfy indie vibe with emotionally honest lyrics. Bassist Ben Slade gives us some insight “‘Nice To Say Hello’ is a gripping song about losing someone you love, the feelings of loneliness, and the emotions of frustration and confusion that can come with it.”
Lyrics that tug at the heartstrings are set against a sweet yet sorrow tinged instrumental. The steady beat growing in suspense allows the chorus to flourish into a hook that blooms in optimistic hope. A sparkling riff kicks it up a notch in the bridge for a final chorus that is sure to tickle the indie bone. If you’re a fan of early Coldplay, Elbow or Athlete, The Rogues will leave you wanting more than just a nice hello.
Nice To Say Hello is third single from The Rogues and is out 10th November
