Short in the Sleeve – “For a Band I Once Loved”


“For a Band I Once Loved” is a no-frills, charismatic rock success from Short in the Sleeve. The Memphis-based band traverses from a throwback alt-rock steadiness into a more vibrant chorus, exuding a power-pop engrossment.

“Like lightning from the speakers, and euphoria from the stage,” the vocals let out there. “We all got old, and you got boring.” Thereafter, a hooky bridge — “sometimes I pull one of those records,” — diversifies just enough, cementing the track’s infectious qualities with this structural switch-up and ensuing debonair guitar emphasis. “For a Band I Once Loved” is a stellar rock success from Short in the Sleeve.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
