Cardiff lads Basic State have come out with a solid new single packed to bursting with effortless rock’n’roll thrills. Clearly taking inspiration from grunge and indie greats like The Strokes, Nirvana and Fontaines D.C, if the South Wales quintet set out to write a tune that would get their loyal crowds of gig-goers pogoing with the same gusto they would give those aforementioned heroes, they’ve succeeded.
With all the high confidence of a group who know they’ve created a serious banger, ‘Far Too Soon’ is welcomed in with a rapping of drumsticks before the gale force 11 guitar blast takes over and frontman Harvey Sivell gives it his all with a vocal about bumping into an ex-lover before you’re ready, a sheet of lyrics and some lightning riffs that Noel Gallagher himself would be satisfied with.
‘Far Too Soon’ was released back on 6th January 2023. If you want to catch the group live they’re playing Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff on 6th May 2023. You can hear ‘Far Too Soon’ on Spotify
