UK Alternative singer-songwriter Josh Vine presents a catchy brit indie rock track with One of Those Days. This is his third single this year after A Thousand Skies and Billboard Lights. While Vine’s influences include Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Ben Howard, we can hear the genes of the finest British alternative and indie rock tradition of Joy Division, The Smiths, and The Clash.
The song opens interestingly with an onomatopoeic “hmmph” and soon we are catapulted into an infectious indie guitar riff with a clangy tone. The extremely tight punkish drumming is the pulsating heartbeat of the track. Vine’s aloof vocal delivery appropriately emotes the lyrics and the emotions behind them. We hear some wailing lead note phrases and well-applied reverb. Overall, a neat and well-executed guitar sound.
The song is well arranged and produced by Billy Ottewill, who combines traditional indie rock arrangement with a revamped dark sound. Drummer Ed Broad is the hero of the song with his parts being the backbone of the track. Lyrically the song deals with being on bad terms with all and having an all-around bad day with comic effect. One of Those Days is a tight indie rock track with a throbbing groove.
