CHECK IT OUT: Bother Me (My Lucky Fish)

16 Jan

Check it out: My Lucky Fish’s ‘Bother Me’.

my lucky fish

My Lucky Fish describe themselves as a pop-funk group currently based on the East Coast, although ‘Bother Me’ feels distinctly pop-rock in all the best ways. The first track from their debut album Best Thing – which is currently available to buy – ‘Bother Me’ is so relentlessly upbeat you’ll be hard-pressed not to like it. It brings to mind 90s pop-punk at its best; cheerful with an edge of ‘fuck you’. They remind me of Californian indie-rock band Sherwood, but without the soft edge and much more in your face. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step.

Green Day are here and they’re not taking any prisoners.
