Self-proclaimed post-hardcore, pop-punk outfit Finding Argyle recently put out their latest single in the form of an audio-only YouTube video. ‘I Refuse To Leave You Behind’ highlights a shift in their sound. By adding a dose of maturity to the mix, they’ve lifted my hopes that Finding Argyle’s debut album will be something to behold.
A warbling guitar intro gives way to a vocal that holds a distinctive quality as we are delivered a story about how precious our time is when held up against the achievements we make within our allocation.
The deep, thought-provoking lyricism is helped along by the upbeat and pop-riddled riffery and harmonised chanting that has helped established bands of the genre achieve hero status in the world of music. If this offering serves as a taster for the album due out later this year then sign me up.
Finding Argyle are due to play Glasgow’s Hug and Pint on Monday 20th March and you can listen to the song below.
