One of the latest releases coming from Nashville’s Battle Tapes Studios is The Criticals’ ‘United States of Chemicals’! The song was written by Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart who formed their band in 2018, driven by energy and a desire to be the next love baby of The Stone Roses and The Doors, the band have been playing together and building towards that dream ever since.
The band and their latest single have taken inspiration from youth, honesty and a lust for life and have created quite the electrifying sound! It’s pungent, in your face, energetic and thumping, a refreshing blend of indie rock and punk with sharp vocals and funky harmonies that colour its soundscape. Yeah, we wouldn’t mind hearing more from The Criticals!
