The Pulltops – “3-2-1 Go!”


Milwaukee-based duo The Pulltops build a climactic, ready-set captivation on “3-2-1 Go!” — strutting a radiant, hooky rock appeal with synth-touched flourishing. Drummer Mark Pierret and guitarist Tom Crowell continue their strong stretch of singles, impressing in prior months with “Make Me Smile” and “Here We Are.” The Pulltops describe “3-2-1 Go!” as “about diving head first into making your dreams come true.”

“Put your boots on, set your sights on a brand new days,” the opening vocals encourage, stressing a time-is-now ethos in not “waiting for the sun,” to go down. The crisp, harmonious guitar tones and soaring vocals drive into a satiating chorus with glistening synth infusions, capped off by a title-touting charisma into the “whoa-oh,” enthusiasm of the subsequent verses. The Pulltops continue to showcase their hook-filled rock songwriting smarts with “3-2-1 Go!”

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
