Today marks the release of ‘I’ll Be Your Heroine’, the lead single from My Heroine‘s debut EP ‘Driven To Distraction’ (review available here). And it’s a great track for the band to lead with.
The track shows the melodic metal signature style of the band, but also contains strong elements of a mix of other genres – all of which come together to make for an exciting and interesting listen. The drums for example have an undeniable minimalistic, punk-inspired approach for the most part: they may be simple, but they are most definitely effective in driving the song forward.
Above this strong rhythm we have a steady bass line and an in-your-face layer of guitars that make the song worth listening to. But the real beauty comes in the form of the vocal work: praise here not only falls on the power and melody of the vocals, but also the urge to singalong that I get every time I listen to the song. It truly is something special.
This song is, without a doubt, one of the band’s finest. A great choice as a lead track and one that will go down well with fans. I can’t wait for an opportunity to see it performed live!
