Take 5 With The Good Love

Following on from their critically praised single ‘Sunshine Sometime’, New South Wales-based rock quartet The Good Love have just revealed their sugary new single ‘Too Much To Dream’ – produced and mixed by Jack Nigro (Pacific AvenueThe TerrysTOTTY), and mastered by Andy Walter of Abbey Road Studios in London. Today the band have shared with us five tracks that influenced the new jam.

Songs that influenced ‘Too Much To Dream’

The Kinks – ‘Lola’ (Lez) – Music that influenced our latest song is early rock n roll coming out in California in the 60s mainly, but this song also was a big inspiration!

Sunny Boys – ‘Alone With You’ (Joel) – I’ve been loving ‘Alone With You’ by the Sunny Boys. It Brings me back to my childhood with my dad, playing their tapes in our old Suzuki sierra, driving on the beach at seal rocks.

Michael Jackson – ‘Rock With You’ (Jayden) – Been listening to a lot of Michael Jackson lately. It brings me back to why I started drumming, and hearing his music takes me back to a young kid listening to the different drum grooves in his music, getting that inspiration all over again.

Wings – ‘Band On The Run’ (Sam) – This song has me feeling oh so nice and taking me on a roller coaster of dreamy thoughts and reminiscing times of laughter and romance with my beautiful wife. I love this song because the bass flows throughout the song like a skipping stone skimming along a sunset river on a crimson sky night.

Steely Dan – ‘Black Friday’ (Manning) – This song has literally everything – crazy good keyboard riffage, top-tier guitar solos, a driving rhythm section and lyrics that talk about fleeing to Muswellbrook when the stock market crashes. What’s not to love? Best road trip song ever.
