Power pop extraordinaires, Hurry, are gearing up for the impending release of their new album, Don't Look Back, and they have now shared one more early taste of the record with the sugary sweet, "Something More."

Due out next Friday, August 11th, via Lame-O Records, Don't Look Back provides another dose of Hurry's timeless, longing guitar pop, with vocalist/guitarist Matt Scottoline tapping into his seemingly endless well of shining melodies paired with emotional candor. "Something More" follows previous singles "Parallel Haunting" and "Beggin' For You," (which garnered attention from the likes of Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Paste Magazine, and more) and its crisp production, courtesy of Ian Farmer, allows Scottoline's impeccable pop songcraft to shine, offering one of the biggest choruses from an album packed with big choruses.

 Scottoline discussed the new track saying:

"'Something More' is a self deprecating rock song, and explores the notion of how feelings of unconditional love can just trap you sometimes. It’s written from hindsight. From a songwriting perspective, this was a song where I tried to mash up some feeling from Gerry Love’s style on Songs From Northern Britain with some more punk and emo influenced guitar leads. Justin also rips an amazing solo in this one."


Don't Look Back follows 2021's Fake Ideas, and continues Hurry's streak of perfect power pop releases. The album's ten songs are packed with chiming guitars and layered harmonies, all calibrated for maximum catchiness courtesy of Ian Farmer's crisp production. Don’t Look Back takes its title from a song by Teenage Fanclub, who famously named one of their records after a Big Star song with 1993’s Thirteen. It's a lighthearted nod towards the referential nature of power pop, but by now Hurry have amassed an impressive catalog of irresistible guitar music of their own—proof that they're exceptionally adept at using the genre's best traits to create fresh and satisfying new music in this longstanding tradition.
