Irish three-piece Left on Read drop indie-rock ode to unrequited love, “Most of All”
Blending a funky bass line with lyrical storytelling, up-and-coming group Left on Read’s new track strays from the old cliche of love-gone-awry.
The band, made up of brothers Adam and Jack Reeves, and close friend Steven Tynan, started the single out with a bassline and built from there – a similar process to the formation of the outfit. Initially beginning with a series of rehearsals, the boys didn’t know what they were creating or where they were aiming – but it didn’t take long until they realised that this could become something more. As they recall, “It was a no-brainer to start a more formal group with our best mates. We were just having so much fun.”
From there, the Limerick-based band began pushing the boundaries of their sound with different styles of music. A love for experimentation encouraged forays into funk rock, grunge, jazz, and even Latin-inspired beats. And over lockdown, they spent some time honing and developing synth textures, something that adds a fresh element to their predominantly indie rock sound.
Imbuing meaning into a refreshingly textured track, “Most of All” speaks to the band’s creativity and drive. As Left on Read explain, “Most of All’ is a tragedy. It’s about unrequited feelings and is an attempt to brush off the hurt to save face.”
