1. Goodbye Goodbye

4. She’s Got To Go
The MD/DC based Hotspur creates a unique sound in a genre that has way too many bands. The powerpop/alternative pop-rock genre has a lot of crappy/semi-serious bands in it, but Hotspur shows they are not one of those bands. With one of the best vocals I heard in a while and a very professional instrumental occupation, this band is waiting for the big break. With the right promotion strategies and a bit of luck, that break is soon to arrive. Excellent songwriting, amazing vocals, tight rhythm section and distinctive guitar work: A mix close to perfection!
Goodbye Goodbye is a fairly decent song. The vocals are absolutely amazing and the guitar riffs are tight. Good rhythm section. The song gets catchier by the second. The more you listen to it, the more you are getting into it. This would be a very good radio single in the Alternative circuit.
The lyrics aren’t the best I’ve ever seen but they’re definitely decent. And most importantly, they fit the mood of the song. (or should I say the music fits the lyrics).
Impressive piece of music. This is what we like to hear in Powerpop/Alternative pop/rock.
Her Majesty is a pretty good song. Hotspur seems to have found a way to create music on a very decent level with excellent vocal quality and professional, tight instrumental support. It might not be the most renewing style of music but they did find a way to sound different from most bands in this genre. They lyrics in this song are good, and if I’m not mistaken there’s a little sarcasm in them. I really enjoyed this song. Keep ‘m coming.
Have You Seen This Girl?
Musically, Have You Seen This Girl, is the best of the 4 songs on the Myspace player. Lyrically it’s pretty good too. Crystal clear vocals, great melodic lines. Just a great song. You should just listen to it yourself and decide. I’m sold.
She’s Got To Go
Pretty intelligent song, She’s Got to Go. A little rock n’ roll thrown in to the powerpop mix. Once again I’ll have to point out the quality of the vocals. Apart from the clear vocals there’s also a great articulation which a lot of modern-day singers seem to find unimportant. I’m glad to hear some singers actually find a way to pronounce the words. Props. Splendid song again.
