NEW PHARAOHS – SINGLE REVIEW

New Pharaohs – Nothing Without You 
New Pharaohs - Nothing Without You


Release Date: Out Now

Every now and again, life reminds you that you can’t do certain things and today I have been reminded that I can’t spell ‘Pharaohs’ without really thinking about it. Still, spelling deficiencies aside, New Pharaohs is a great band name and the new single, ‘Nothing Without You’, is equally great. A feel good, summery, windows down on an open road vibe is played out on tight guitars and a chunky bassline. Vocally, Maya Marie takes her lead from the queen of 80s up-tempo pop, Cyndi Lauper, and mixes it with Nina Persson the Cardigans and a soupcon of Lana Del Ray. Impish, bouncy, positive and infectious, ‘Nothing Without You’ is a real gem of an alt-pop summer smash – or at least it deserves to be.
