Belfast based band The Rising have a new single out – and the release is perfectly timed.
Endless Summer is a bouncy, up-tempo song, it is fast paced from the get-go, opening with drums and guitars before introducing Chantelle McAteer on vocals. The song is about memories of summer, and it is simple and poppy as all good summer tracks should be, reflecting that positivity we all feel at the beginning of the summer, remembering those school holidays when we were younger that seem to have been 6 weeks of non-stop sunshine - when we look back. The song has a kind of American Teen dream feel – but you can definitely detect the Northern Irish lilt in the vocals!
Overall, Endless Summer is a feelgood track – and as I write this on a grey August day, that’s exactly what I need to listen to! The repetition of “summer summer” certainly helps remind me that is supposed to be summer already…
This is only the second track from The Rising that I have listened to and reviewed, and I have to say that I like the upbeat take they seem to have. Let’s see what the rest of the promised album holds in store!
Endless Summer the new single from the Rising is released on 2 August and is available on all the usual platforms.
