Goodbye June is an alternative rock band from Nashville, TN and just back on August 26, 2016, Goodbye June released their debut EP, Danger In The Morning.
This EP is only 5 songs, starting with the first one they released, "Oh No." Instantly, I had a lot of different thoughts regarding them. The first being, they are definitely not what I expected, but that's not bad. They have a sort of classic rock feel to them, yet also have a modern twist. They actually remind me of another band that's quite underrated called, Rival Sons.
The whole EP goes through different styles and lyrical content, which on its own makes it quite special. My particular favorite though is the slowest track on the EP, "Darlin'." "Darlin'" seems to be a message to someone who's broke your heart. Clearly it was written in a time of heartbreak, and reflection. He points out how much she hurt him, and points out all of their dreams, and how he feels about it. "Darlin', I don't know what you've done to me, but it works and I hate it." It's a beautiful, and very sad song.
Near the end of it, it picks up in tune, but all through it you hear the passion, and the heartache shines through.
If you haven't heard of Goodbye June, I highly recommend you check them out. I see them going very far, and they're already on the right track. Starting on February 9, they set out on a tour with Whiskey Myers, that ends on February 22. After that, they go back on the road and will take part on several festivals such as KFMA Day, Edgefest, Welcome To Rockville, Fort Rock, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Rock On The Range, Rocklahoma and the River City Rockfest. In between some of the festivals are a few select tour dates, so please be sure to head on over to Goodbye June's website for further information. If you want any information on any of the festivals, please check out the respective festival websites.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
