If The Hives took cocaine, this would happen…

The Scenes bring nothing but melodic intensity on new single.


It’s not often that you come across a band that feel like they’ve taken the sound of a relatively well-established band and renovated it while indulging in copious amounts of cocaine. Yet, that is how best to describe Hypermobility, the brand new single from The Scenes.

The track is an unrelenting aural assault, using the loose threads of alternative-pop melodies and structures and stitching them together with the driving intensity and passion of Slaves. It’s an unusual mix, making for something truly remarkable. There is no room to breathe; there is no time to break or wait. The song hits hard and hits fast, with flurries of intense guitars and bone-rattling drums. This is exactly what cocaine hypermobility feels like.
