Single review: THE PETAL FALLS – Somebody to Love Me

Website [Release date 29.04.22]

It’s no secret that I am a fan of this band since reviewing the band’s debut album, ‘Workin All Night, Workin All Day’ released during lockdown, and the follow up album last September, “All These Years” , now presented with the teaser single, ‘Somebody To Love Me’ from their forthcoming third album titled ‘Everything About You’ which is due to be released in September 2022, I am wondering if this band can pull it off yet again.

From the opening intro to the new track, there’s absolutely no doubt this single is going to be great signpost of what’s to come!

The Petal Falls signature is catchy rock which doesn’t fit neatly into any category, with sublime production and lyrics we can all relate to and “Somebody to Love Me” delivers on all aspects – again sounding familiar but new at the same time.

“…. I can’t promise you no caviar, I work hard for what I’ve got, if it ain’t enough, then baby that’s tough”

Keith’s vocals are supberb (I start comparing to Bryan Adams in my head) and the harmonies work really well to add depth to what is simply put a great song!

I am really excited to hear the new album, keep up the good work, The Petal Falls, your music rocks! As the band say “Let The Music Do The Talking”, give them a listen, you’ll be in for a treat. *****
