Opening with a hook sounding like something from East Bay Ray’s back catalog and leading straight into the fast-paced vocals the song hits hard right off the bat. Combining elements of indie and punk to create a sound that feels familiar yet still manages to avoid coming across as generic, The Green Brother’s debut single feels like it really lays out the groundwork for a band that could develop a really unique and interesting style.

The song covers all the lyrical bases when it comes to the tried and tested approach to indie-punk which is to be expected from a debut, hopefully the lads can try out different approaches on future work to avoid becoming formulaic.
The kind of song that would be suited to sound-tracking a night out with the lads, Something to Lose is catchy, confident and full of attitude.
Hopefully the band can stay on course and avoid the pitfalls of other indie-punk ensembles – only time will tell!
