Modern punk and metal vibes swim about the rock ether freely in the latest single from The Things We Hide, ‘Opposite Side Of Love’. It's massive, belting and percussive. A rock song dreamt up by an explosion. The sinister guitar-bell combo makes it dark, foreboding like powdered wig twins are tinkling triangles at the end of a blood-red hall. The instrumental brings it back, its rough and blaring, guitars that shimmer and scream and vocals that shine like a lighthouse over foggy waters, their light bouncing off of formidable rocks of melody and tone. ‘Opposite Side Of Love’ brings a new dimension to indie rock, one that is romantic in the literary sense and holds gravitas, it's grand, lavish and it is beautiful.




The sound initially struck me as small, so small it would not have ample room to grow. But The Things We Hide knew this also, so they gave the song the breathing room it needed to survive. At 7 minutes you would assume this song to be a drag, but it is far from it. It's a punk/metal story with heady lyrics and vocals that are crisp, clean and harmonic. The bass is low and doesn’t go overboard, the guitar strikes up the emotion while the percussion picks the scale, moving, growing, from a garage sound to thunderous cloud snaps. ‘Opposite Side Of Love’ is formidable and astounding, but it doesn’t lose its musicality and remains a bloody good tune.
