Hey! Hello! is Love Is Pop‘s Album of the Day
“Hey, it’s OK, not all days, can be beautiful days,” they sing during “Feral Days” and that’s the sort of lyrics you get on this album. It might have a punk rock edge, but there aren’t any angry manifestos or damn the man songs here. No cheesy ballads either. Nope. Another way to describe Hey! Hello!? They’re like a hard rock band covering 10 spectacular power pop songs.
“Why can’t I just be me without you,” Ginger asks during “Why Can’t I Be Me Without You.” And it’s the closest thing the album has to a depressing song. And it’s totally not depressing. Sure, it deals with surviving a break up, and even asks a universal question, but it’s highly infectious and fun nevertheless. (Fun, fun, fun — that’s Hey! Hello!) And it feels entirely optimistic even if it never quite answers the question it asks.
From the insanely catchy opening track, “Black Valentine,” to the awesome and appropriately entitled closing track, “We’re Outta Here,” Hey! Hello!’s album never slows down for a second.
If you like hard rock or power pop or punk rock or any type of rock then you simply have to check this out. Watch their video and hear them for yourself. You will be impressed. Otherwise, there’s something sorely wrong with you and you should seek help immediately by going to a boring music site like Spin.com
