The Pulltops are the musical equivalent of a personal message on a greeting card. What was already nice to hear and look at just gets better. Their approach to indie rock with pop influences creates for some memorable melodies. You bet after the song finishes, you’ll be left with a hole in your heart the length of that song. Their latest single is a fresh pop rock single. This is their latest, Stronger.
Keeping a simple bass groove and minimal chord changes-the lyrics come in focus. Like The Killers or The Script, they are narrating a story with an addictive background. It is like understanding a new protagonist, someone with a life to learn about. Scotch-smooth transitions take you from the verse to the chorus. A dreamy synth pop sound peppers the background, while a resonant synth lead guides. It reiterates the message, this idol that is stronger-a precipice of comfort and hope. The Pulltops know how to make a song addictive, all it takes is truth as poetry. A great rhythm core helps as well, for songs like this are rear to hear now. The duo from Milwaukee have explored a lot of tones, but they put their all in. Messages that last for more than the song.
You can hear their music on many playlists, all kept fresh with their pleasant approach to composing.
I’d like to have this song on the 2013 movie, About Time. It is a sweet tale of love through a sci-fi concept-and The Pulltops could nail that sound easily. Listen to their singles like Seasons Change and Changes to watch how many ways they can approach this genre and make something fresh!
