Jukebox The Ghost | Everybody’s Lonely | Single Review
Record Label: Yep Roc Records
After a four-year songwriting hiatus, Jukebox the Ghost is back with the release of a new single from their upcoming album, Off To The Races.
“Everybody’s Lonely” indicates a larger pop influence while tied together with classic 1990s elements that their fans love. The track begins with a staccato piano hook that reminds accustomed listeners of the band’s earlier work. The mixture of the repetitious chorus and vigorous guitars exemplifies the modern pop influence. The bridge of the track highlights the similarities between Jukebox the Ghost and their biggest influence, Queen. Vocalist Ben Thornwell uses the same staccato technique on the piano, along with distant vocal harmonies that are undeniably inspired by Freddie Mercury. “Everybody’s Lonely” has elements that every music fan can enjoy. Entertaining lyrics, impressive musical ability, and the nostalgic elements bode well for the band’s upcoming album, set to release March 30.
