Last week, Detroit’s own Boys of Fall released their new single “Overthinking” with an accompanying video. As part of his ongoing live reaction series for The Foundry, magazine co-founder Robert Sherman gives the band a literal standing ovation.
The catchy, up-beat track is everything we know and love from the five-piece. Michael Martenson and Jake Cemer provide seamless melodies. However, this single brings back more post-hardcore elements like Martenson’s powerful screams.
“I think Better Moments was incredible in what it was trying to accomplish,” Sherman says. “Mike has such a great scream and they write heavy music so well for a poppy band. It just leaves you wanting them to do it in every song they put out.”
The single follows the re-release of Better Moments in 2019. The “Gold Edition” includes two bonus tracks as well a two acoustic renditions.
This Wednesday, Sherman will be releasing his reaction to “Terrible Love” from Boston Manor’s new album, GLUE.
