Hurry! Hurry? Yes Hurry!! Straight out of Philadelphia PA it's Pop songs with fuzz pedals...or maybe just like “some kind of dumb rock band”. Their words not ours! Third Outing spoke to Hurry. Here's what we found out:
I was really hesitant to release the album after it was recorded. I was too afraid after all the work and emotion I put into building it that it would just get lost in the shuffle of all the other music in the world. But we've been fortunate to have so many people exposed to the record. It’s really terrifying when you write all these songs alone, and then release them, because every reaction to them feels so personal. Even though I realize that’s insane, if someone doesn't appear to like the record, it feels like they don’t like me. I’m a crazy person. Fortunately, nobody has really attacked it yet. It’s been generally positive. Which is great for my mental health.
It's hard to choose one song but Oh Whitney does stand out. It's the kind of song you used to play way too loud thinking "I don't give a fuck" and your mum would ask you to turn it down! You get me?
I have about 11 or 12 finished demos right now. Songs that are ready to record. We are recording in June. I’m hoping to finish the next LP this summer. We are also doing some touring with our friends Yuck, and some other dates around, as well as doing a new record and possibly touring in the UK. Lots of possibilities. I think that’s the optimistic way of looking at it.
'You were right about everything that you said about me, I can't think about it, I'm too weak' sings Matt Scottoline on the opening track Situational Comedy. It makes us think of hopeless romantics with fuzzy guitars reminiscent of the Teenage Fanclub Songs From Northern Britain era, both in terms of sound and lyrics, and just like Teenage Fanclub, Hurry have the talent to create insanely catchy pieces of pop music.
