Toronto-based rock band Numb Tongues have dropped a funky new track today titled 'Automatically.'
Their sound is influenced by hit bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Maroon 5, Audioslave, and The Police, evident in this funky-rock track.
This catchy track has the grooviest vibe, with an edgy electric guitar featured in the chorus. The Wah-wah effects featured throughout the song add a 70's-esque flavour to the song, adding to the vintage atmosphere the song entails. The guitar solo towards the end of the song sounds as though it has a hint of Tame Impala influence and was definitely an unexpected and exciting way to end this upbeat track.
The band is known for their creative and dynamic songwriting abilities, which is very much present in this track. It was written in the first couple of months in the pandemic with zero expectations of where we would end up as a society. Singer Jonah Grinberg was experimenting with some loops and was also angry at a former friend of his, and put his energy towards creating this song,
"For me, it's a timestamp of when COVID started, because before we would've waited to book a studio to record a full kit, but now there's an experimental pop element we wouldn't have had otherwise." - Jonah Gringberg
Gringerbeg sent the demo to the other members in hopes that they would like the song. Tristan (guitar), Max (bass), and Corey (drums) liked it and recorded their parts from home. The band finished all components and sent it to their producer Matt [Snell] before they had ever jammed it together in the same room for the first time.
