In the midst of playing several live dates across England, Hull-born, Leeds-based indie band The Hubbards have revealed ‘Just Touch’ as their new tuneful single. The track radiates infectious and captivating vibes and you’ll unconsciously find yourself listening to it on repeat.
The compelling single gives off a bubbly quality, with an upbeat baseline triggering the urge to put on those dancing shoes. However, once listening to the lyrics you’ll realise there’s a deeper meaning behind the song’s story. It divulges the relatable feeling about being unsure of what or who you really want. The seductive lyrics elucidate that a bit of physical attention might just make things better. It’s about jealousy and confusion which is undoubtedly something we all face at some point in our lives.
The video shows the group jumping from various locations for an impromptu gathering, strumming along and breathing life into the performance video format. Letting off an eighties style atmosphere, personally reminding me of a mix between Dexy’s Midnight Runner’s video for ‘Come on Eileen’ and Madness’ ‘Our House’ and with an aura of Buzzcocks and The 1975 combined, it’s fair to say the four piece have the knack for capturing a vibe that feels modern yet ultimately timeless.
The Hubbards will release ‘Just Touch’ on March 31st, via Scruff of the Neck Records.
The Hubbards are currently touring the UK and will be playing the following cities:
March 31st – Fruit, Hull
April 1st – Gullivers, Manchester
April 21st – Rocking Chair, Sheffield
April 28th – Old Blue Last, London
