”Give Great News a bean bag and some slippers and they’d sink into another dimension.” DIY, Neu Pick “The best band from Norway in many years” Q Magazine

“Full-blown technicolor pop” The Line Of Best Fit

Fresh from a triumphant performance at Bergen’s Vill Vill Vest, Norwegian daze poppers Great News fire out their biting new single ‘Never Get My Love’. This is the second offering from their forthcoming debut LP ‘Wonderfault’ on Bergen-based Eget Selskap. A sonic nod to the ’80s indie rock, ‘Never Get My Love’ is a fuzzed out tropical track issuing wildly and loudly out of the speakers, all unruly riffs and Even Kjelby’s meditative vocals. And as the instrumental layers hit their peak on the transcendent chorus, Kjelby’s repeated mantra “you’re never gonna get my love” spins this full-blown anthem to autonomy into orbit. This is a must for fans of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, DIIV and – dare we say it – Tame Impala. About the song’s lyrics, Even elaborates: “When you’re feeling down and isolated, there’s this voice, like the Devil on your shoulder, telling you to go out and get numb. I am telling him that, sure, we can play around and waste away, but you can not touch the ones I love or get too deep inside my soul. He will never get my love, and he won ́t take my love a way from those who are closest to me.” With press praise pouring in from Q Magazine, DIY, The Line of Best Fit and even Huffington Post, it won’t be long before we see Great News’ delightful hot mess of a live show gracing these shores. We’ll keep you informed with more Great News soon. For more press info about Great News, please contact Debbie and Kasimiira at Create Spark
