Since it’s Friday, we thought we’d send you into the weekend with something a little crunchy, a little heavy, and a little full-blooded. ‘Hell Below’ is the brand new release from Ireland-based rockers Future Lows, and it’s an anthemic and layered banger that we at Indie Top 39 know will get your weekend off to the perfect start! Drawing on inspiration from bands like Funeral for a Friend, Bring Me the Horizon, and Holding Absence, Future Lows have crafted a sound that is mature, intense, aggressive, and most importantly, honest.
Lyrically, ‘Hell Below’ sees singer James O’Donnell getting pretty dark, and dealing with themes of disillusionment and desperation. Ultimately, however, the song has an “overall theme of hope,” says the band. Hailed as one of Ireland’s most exciting new rock acts, we’ll most certainly be keeping an eye (and an ear) on what they come up with next!
‘Hell Below’ is an absolute cracker! A full-blooded, intense, and anthemic rock tune from a band who are just getting started! INDIE TOP 39
What does the song mean to you?
‘Hell Below’ is a song about feeling like you’ve got nothing left to give. Lyrically it’s as real and as dark as it gets but with an overall theme of hope. Sometimes in life, it can feel like you’re drowning and while many will fight with everything they have to stay afloat, this song is about fighting so hard to get to the surface that you question whether it would have been easier to sink?
Who do you hope the song resonates with the most?
For us, writing is all about sharing what we go through in the hopes that others might get some connection with it. Music is cathartic and whether 100 people or 1,000 people know our band, we would still be writing and recording music.
