The Criticals – Absinthe

Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart had been playing music together in a stream of bands in the Nashville DIY scene for nearly a decade. Then, they decided to form their own band The Criticals in 2018. Although inspired by The Stone Roses, Janeโ€™s Addiction and The Doors, their new single Absinthe sounds a lot like The Strokes playing disco. Or even more accurately: I bet they like The Long Blondesโ€™ Guilt (2008) just as much as I do.

The story behind this funky slice of indie-pop is rather straightforward, according to the band. It was โ€˜written and self produced (โ€ฆ) after a long night of drinking Absinthe on Lower Broadway in Nashvilleโ€™. Addictive stuff!
