BEST NEW SONGS: WHITE - I LIKED YOU BETTER WHEN YOU NEEDED ME

8/7/16
White “I Liked You Better When You Needed Me”

Just like that, the competition for song title of the year is over. It helps that White’s latest, “I Liked You Better When You Needed Me,” is also a great cut too.

The Glasgow quintet is prepping their debut EP, Cuts That Don't Bleed, and “I Liked You Better When You Needed Me” is the latest track leaked off said EP. It wastes no time introducing you to the band’s aesthetic: swagger, face-melting guitar riffs, bombastic drums that’ll get you feet stomping, and so many nu-disco hooks you’ll spend most of your time looking for Tony Manero in the music video. White has been one of the biggest buzz bands of Europe’s festival circle this summer, and with “I Liked You Better When You Needed Me” you can understand why. The band has a polished sound and style that most contemporary acts should be jealous of.

This is a nearly perfect song from a band on the rise. Keep an eye on these folks, folks.
