Song Premiere: Hamish Anderson “No Good”
Drivin n Vibin
Australian blues-rock singer-songwriter Hamish Anderson, who has a resume that includes supporting gigs for one of his own biggest musical heroes, B.B. King, along with artists from Los Lobos to Low Cut Connie, is following up his acclaimed 2016 debut album Trouble with a new single, “No Good,” which Relix is pleased to premiere today.
“’No Good’ is really a song about making the decision to leave behind things that are doing you more harm than good,” Anderson says of the new track. “The guitar riff I had for a long time and I kept coming back to it for abut six months. Finally, one day all the words just came to me. We were in the studio soon after that to record it with Jim Scott. From the first downbeat, we were all excited by it’s driving energy and groove.”
“No Good”—a pounding rocker that recalls Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers at their most defiant and boasts some lightning-strike guitar work from Anderson—was produced by multi-Grammy-winner Jim Scott and features drummer Johnny Radelat, bassist Chris Bruce and organist Jerry Borge. Listen to the single below, and catch Anderson live at a couple of upcoming Los Angeles dates this month.
