I love break-up songs. I love rock music and everything under that genre umbrella the most. I also love pop music –BIG TIME. So “Nobody Wins” kind of feels like Jack Barakat and Kevin Fisher snuck into my bedroom saw my pile of band t-shirts and read my diary. WhoHurtYou is putting out songs that this music lover just wants to climb inside of and play on repeat for hours. “Nobody Wins” is the latest single from the dark pop duo. It delivers in the pop category but appeals to higher standards when it comes to lyrical content. In this break-up song, the word “baby” is never used –Thank the stars. The rhythm is distinctly straight-forward pop with vocal highlights that almost have an R&B bent. When it comes to texture and variety it was arranged by people that obviously have a wide spectrum of musical influences, synth and banjo in one song is not an easy feat. Check it out, then come sit next to me while I wait for an album.
