Angeles unveiled another single from its latest album this week.
The band debuted its new single ‘Start Living‘ Thursday exclusively through Brave Words. The song is the fourth album from the band’s new album Hell on High Heels. Its debut comes three days after the band debuted the video for the album’s second single ‘Celebrate.’
The band debuted ‘Celebrate’ and the album’s third single ‘Heal The Wounds’ (along with that song’s video) last month. Angeles debuted the video for the album’s lead single ‘Rolling Like Thunder‘ in April.
‘Start Living’ is another positive, uplifting (so to speak) work featured in Angeles’ latest album. That is due in part to its musical arrangement, which is a work that is as energetic and upbeat as ‘Celebrate.’ Its sound and approach is also just as similar to works from Motley Crue and others as that song. It should be noted that even with that stylistic similarity, the song still bears its own sound, so it is not just ripping off the works from those bands or even itself. To that end, the song’s arrangement does its own part to keep listeners engaged and entertained in this case. Its lyrical content builds on that engagement and entertainment.
The energy in the song’s musical arrangement matches its lyrical theme, which the band discussed in a prepared statement.
“Start living is about what everyone is going through the last 4 months with being locked downed and all you want to do is start living again do the things you did before go to concerts, movies, out to dinner, just have fun,” the statement reads.”
The noted message is delivered as front man Louis Collins sings in the song’s lead verse, “Thirty days in and I’m feeling down…Sick of the walls/I’m tired and bored/I wanna rock the world.But I’m stuck indoors/Let’s get moving/Start living all night long.” He continues in the song’s second verse, “Look at my guitar/I play real loud/And take the shows to the biggest crowd/Party all night with the pretty girls…getting in the fights with the boys in the band…Patch things p with a whiskey shot/Do it again tomorrow/Ready or not/let’s get moving/Start living all night long.” This alone makes for its own engagement and entertainment for audiences. That is because the fans want to be out there just as much as the bands. Keeping that collective mindset and the energy and sound in the song’s musical arrangement, it becomes increasingly clear why this song is another standout addition to Hell on High Heels. It is certain to become an anthem in its own right as bands and audiences alike await the return of live music. Together with the other songs noted here and the rest of its works, Hell on High Heels shows why it is a positive return for Angeles.
