Bright Orange Spectacle – I Struggle To Communicate (Review)

North London based pop rock outfit Bright Orange Spectacle are back with their second single to date ‘I Struggle To Communicate’. Released via their own What About Records on December 6th, 2019 has been a huge year for the collective. With their debut single “She Could Do Better” storming onto the scene and making the band known for contagious choruses and hooks, it’s safe to say that the newest release does exactly that too. Blending elements of stadium rock with an indie essence, the band are ready for a stage to perform to the whole world. 

Charlie Sinclair stated: “We live in a time where everyone has to be a social commentator. It’s not necessarily a bad thing but it leads to a certain amount of pressure for bands to make very grand political statements from day one. I kept sitting down to write that song and eventually this came out. It’s just a lot of honesty about my own lack of understanding towards our correct cultural climate. We live in a time where information is so readily available, yet I still feel like I know nothing. Things are bad, obviously things are bad, but that’s about all I know-and that’s fucking depressing. So ‘I Struggle To Communicate’ is just a reaction to my own ignorance and a personal call to arms for me to better facilitate myself with knowledge.”

“I Struggle to Communicate” features a wide production that feels cinematic to begin with and ends in an epic finale for the band. With elements of euphoria and foundations of indie-esque guitars, the anthem secures another step up the ladder for Bright Orange Spectacle’s growing career.

Score: 4/5
