Gross Domestic Product Song of the Day-ish – Hath No Fury – Bruised

Gross Domestic Product is just around the corner, April 14 to be exact, and I thought to help promote it a little, I would feature a song from one of the bands each day-ish. I probably won’t do it everyday, thus the -ish. For more info on GDP visit the Facebook Event Page or Des Moines Music Coalition’s website

This is a rock band. I mean, lots of bands are rock bands, but GDP usually seems to have the indie prefix attached to whatever they happen to bring in, indie-rap, indie-rock, indie-folk. And while indie just means unsigned, that little prefix usually adds a hauty or experimental air to the proceedings. So while Hath No Fury is by definition an Indie Rock Band, well, they ain’t.

This is guitar rock and roll. That’s not a bad thing. Sometimes a six string and a story to tell is all you need to really make an impact. I’ve heard a little bit from this band, and from what I’ve heard, they tend to have a little more of a sweet voice on top of the guitars. For this song, the voice turns a little gruffer, which seems appropriate. (I am aware that there are two different singers. I don’t mean the voice literally, I mean the voice of the band).

I like this and think especially at GDP it will be a nice change of pace to the proceedings. It would be like a breath of fresh air, but instead it would be a breath of menthol smoke and spilled beer. Don’t act like that’s a bad thing.

Incidentally, they are playing with Black Storm Alice and Lady Jules at House of Bricks on Friday. So maybe check them out then, too.
