Introducing a refreshingly hard-hitting, addictive and organic grunge meets pop-punk single, from an LA-based band with an unwavering love for music at the heart of their creative route.
Noting almost 2 million streams on Spotify alone, BORT’s Can You Hear Me has rightfully connected the masses with its intricate balancing of genuine passion, presence, energy and melodic appeal.
There’s nostalgia in the fuzz and pace of the track, akin to the influences tipped by front-man Jordan McGraw – Weezer, the Pixies, to name just a few – but there’s also something crisp and contemporary about the performance and the lyrical journey.
BORT awaken the scene with this anthem, uniting authenticity with a fearless devotion to enjoying the process, and topping it all off with skillful musicianship and catchy, effective songwriting.
The verse lyrics reflect quietly, self-scorn and longing elevated from the outset, before the hook rightfully brightens things up for that arena-ready, all-together-now moment.
We’re almost in Creep territory, only the style hits differently, and the personalities weave a whole new web of appeal. I look forward to hearing more.
