Loving it . Absolutely loving it.
Less shouty more singy… unexpected
im loving the songs so far. very open about loss. must have helped alot writing these.
Oh those lyrics…. 😭
They're good. Simple, but clear. Heartbreaking really.
I'm getting the happy pop/punk vibes like Up In Arms and What Did I Do?
I'm still hearing that Beatles influence. It's melody that's familiar but I can't place with the limited listening I'm giving it.
I thought that too
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go
And I just can't look, it's killing me
And taking control
Posted in the other thread as well but anyway -
Musically it’s like the song Overdrive should have been.
I'm typically an album guy and don't like to listen to the singles too much but I completely missed those lyrics 😳
Nate's on fire on this one, so great to have the early FF crazy bass lines back!
Under You stew recipe:
"Overdrive" + Bob Mould/Husker Du + "Flavor of The Weak" by American Hi-Fi + "Mr. Brightside"
Song does make me think of Overdrive, to compare lyric patterns to other Foo songs, kind of similar to In The Clear in parts, but better (and I like that song)
The lyrics without the music are completely beautiful and heartbreaking. I really like how it it contrasted with the upbeat melody, it works well and is so Foo Fighters.
This has been bothering me all night and this is absolutely correct. Cannot unhear
A bunch of my friends must've thought I was a 19 year old pseudo street teamer as I was sending the link to them this morning but I was really just trying to have someone tell me what I was reminded of.
Congregation is the other Foo song that kinda fits too.
Oh and a Canadian band that opened for Foo like 25 years ago named Treble Charger. The lead single off the record after the tour they did with Foo Fighters was this song "American Psycho" and I keep thinking of that too.
Canadian so very familiar with that song, and I had not made the connection but you know what, you’re right
it should have won a Juno award
I like it - very commercial pop but with touching lyrics… wasn’t quite what I was expecting when I heard the vocal tease the other day
Ha! Nail on the head
This is probably my favourite thing they’ve released in a long time.
youre not wrong, just put it on, on a decent set of headphones and can hear him now!
Especially the few bars at the end of the pre-choruses, the old Nate is back!
The bass line overall is wonderfully crazy on this one, he's playing fifths (as in two notes at the same time) Novoselic style and moving up and down the whole time and playing fills whenever he can, just like in the old days!
Love this song! B-sides aren't around anymore, I think this song would sound great acoustic version in the studio. Same tempo, full band, and add a piano.
I think that would totally break us but yep, I can see it as an acoustic version.
It's only been a few days but airplay figures for 'Under You' are nowhere near where you'd expect - and even less than 'Rescued'. It's also about to drop out of all the iTunes charts already. I suspect things will pick up once the album drops, but the total lack of visual material for this album is, in my opinion, harming them (and I say this while understanding and agreeing with their choice).
Let's hope the album does better, I'm not sure how much singles and airplay plays a part these days. But it's a tricky one this time, overhype it and people will say they're being too flippant about the situation, this is very understated and barely on the radar by the sounds of it. They may not be too bothered about reaching a wider audience at the moment as long as fans buy it (most will buy more than one version as well!) and then there is the fest tour. Maybe they'll use that to boost the album to folks outside the current Foodom?
This one feels like more of a promo song than a proper single to me, though, for whatever that means nowadays, Rescued is still kind of moving up the charts in places, it just seems a little close after it.
I wonder (based upon absolutely nothing) if management were pushing them to release something and they just didn’t want to do any of the promo involved because of the obvious questions etc which will come out.
tbh I don’t think a band the size of the guys needs to worry about harming their reputation in this scenario
Actually, thinking about it the one-two punch of releasing Under You (unambiguously about Taylor) just before revealing who’s playing drums is a nice poignant but low-key PR move.
Also seeing this song live was heavy (though it sounded awesome). Props to Dave for getting through that second verse ❤️. Also love Shifty’s backup vocals on it, I saw him mouthing the words along to the first chorus as well.
