A hooky pop single from Netherlands-based band Future Husband, “Good Company” emphasizes the importance of picking oneself up after defeat. An array of thumping rhythmic contemplation and anthemic, spirited rises make for a compelling momentum throughout, showcasing the quartet’s talents for pop-savvy songwriting and atmospheric production alike.
A funky bass-laden engrossment and debonair vocals — yearning to “get it under control,” while reflecting on a bad dream — project a climactic enamoring to start. Buzzing guitars and wordless backing vocal punches complement the “I don’t wanna see anyone right now,” admittances, driving seamlessly into the radiant hook: “Sometimes it’s better to end something that hasn’t even started.” A glistening key addition in the chorus’ second entry, around 02:30, adds further to the inviting pop soundscape. The “sometimes you gotta pick yourself up,” ethos and expressive pop production dazzle on Future Husband’s memorable “Good Company.”
