The Criticals – “Got No Love”


The Criticals’ latest track is “Got No Love,” a throwback folk success with psych-friendly qualities. Per the band, they “recorded the song live after writing it one hour previous in high summer in a non-air conditioned shed in rural TN.” “Got No Love” represents the final entry in their debut release Mimosa Hygiene, described as “a summation of all of the experiences of being 21 in the city of Nashville.” Brief at just over two minutes, the track nonetheless crafts its own memorable vibe via clanging acoustics, suave vocal lines, and a nice ascension around 01:15. The duo of Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart impress again with “Got No Love.”

“Got No Love” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2019’ Spotify playlist.
