Howdy ladies and gents, it has been almost a month since the last time I posted something on here, terrible I know, but today I’m back to share my thoughts on the latest song released from AFI; “Get Dark“.
Now for those not aware, AFI is one of my all-time favourite bands, since 2008 their sound has filled my life with endless hours of joy, but also has helped me get through some of the tougher periods of my life in the past. And even though I had played to review the AFI (The Blood Album) last year, I just lost a lot of my writing passion in 2017 so I never got around to it. But after hearing this new song I knew I had to get on my blog and talk about it.
Here’s the song:
So yeah “Get Dark” just dropped online out of nowhere almost a week ago, I saw it in my YouTube subscription page and clicked immediately while half awake in bed. Upon my first listen I thought it was good, had a fast and upbeat tempo which I really liked and catchy/memorable chorus, but it didn’t blow me away. However, I listened to it again a few days ago and recently the song’s just got stuck in my and I’ve found myself singing the chorus while at work or walking around the house. Fastfoward to today and I’ve listened to the song 5 times since release (which is a lot for me when it comes to new music). I think its safe to say that I’m a fan of this song.
Similar to “I Hope You Suffer” back in 2013, I think this track is one that grows on you (though “I Hope You Suffer” grabbed me a lot quicker). “Get Dark” feels like a continuation of some of the sounds that AFI did with Burials and The Blood Album, this song’s intense, swift and catchy, it hooks you and since it comes and goes so quickly it leaves you wanting more. I really like the drum beat, the chorus and that guitar solo towards the latter half of the song. This song is just delicious and addictive. And when I found out this was going to be one of more tracks coming from the band I was ecstatic. I might pre-order The Missing Man EP just so I can half that music ready to download on the day of release haha.
So to conclude I think “Get Dark” is another great song from AFI, like their recent albums it’s different yet familiar and if you like this band this song should be right up your street. So have you check out this song and if so what did you think of it? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below and I’ll see you with more content soon, laters! 😀
