Single Review: Hard Fi – ‘Good For Nothing’2 min read
English indie quartet Hard Fi have come a long way in the ten years leading up to the release of their new single Good For Nothing which is releases on Monday.
Since the bands formation in 2003 they have enjoyed critical and commercial success with several chart appearances. The bands early single releases (Cash Machine, Hard To Beat and Living For the Weekend) have all seen the Top 20 spot as well as their debut album, Stars Of CCTV, hitting the number one position.
With such successful beginnings it would seem pretty fair to say that the band have set the bar rather high in terms of following up on that early chart domination yet they seem on their way with this latest offering.
Good For Nothing sees Hard Fi doing what they do best – creating memorable and noteworthy additions to the indie genre. With a catchy chorus line built around a beefy and hook heavy instrumentation the track is carried by front man Richard Archers driving and enthusiastic vocal approach.
The track holds up well from start to end and displays a band quite capable or claiming the top spot once again with the singles parent record Killer Sounds if Good For Nothing is anything to go by.
The band have worked with top producers including Stuart Price and Greg Kurstin on the new album and Good For Nothing has already received the nod from DJ Zane Lowe on his Radio 1 show receiving the title of ‘Hottest Record in the World’. Not a bad follow up to the bands already acclaimed catalogue indeed.
