So, I lied. In the previous article, I declared that we only had two premieres scheduled for today. Nope, we have three. It’s not a bad thing, to be honest, because the third and final one is a real belter. Titled No Suprise, you won’t be shocked to hear that Brighton-based Koala Club have created another hit. It’s inevitable really given their past record of producing great tunes (listen to 360 and One Day for a dance and head nod).
I recently had a long chinwag with frontman James Grimsdale, and this is what he had to say about the track: “No Suprise is about seeking truth and honesty. About losing the lies that are spoken to make you feel better momentarily, moving on and getting rid of toxic relationships in your life”.
He’s not wrong there. No Suprise is a cleanser of evil thoughts and terrible memories. No longer will you want to scratch your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend’s car for mistreating you. Instead, you’ll play No Suprise and gyrate any bad feelings away.
If that doesn’t work, listen again and again and again. No Suprise isn’t some one-trick pony; it has multiple layers. Peel each one back, and you’ll find something new every time. I’m on my third play, and I’m still finding new guitar riffs and hidden meanings in the lyrics.
Out on the 13th March, No Suprise will continue to be an Independent Music News office hit, and it will probably be on repeat in your household too. Enjoy.
