Hummer: Hellogoodbye's New Single

8.6.2009

By Gregory Evan Miller

It's been quite some time since super fun emo slash electronic pop rock band Hellgoodbye has had a hit, and it's basically due to the fact that they've been too busy touring to do much of anything else.  But the days of sadness are over, for the band is releasing it's second full length album after an obnoxious two year wait.

Hellogoodbye hit the jackpot with their 2006 release of "Here (In Your Arms)" from the album Zombies! Vampires! Aliens! Dinosaurs!  The song gained momentum and popularity thanks to the clever nerd-gets-the-girl music video.  Seriously, go watch it if you haven't seen it before.  It'll be the first time you'll want to have sex with a nerd--he's that adorable.

The new single, "When We First Met" is cute and quaint, with a softer vibe than the dance underbeat of "Here."  However, that dance beat is largely what made the band successful with the mainstream MTV crowd, typically strangers to the dance music genre.  While "When We First Met" really isn't comparable to "Here," it still has the quirkiness the band is know for--something that could push the band back into the spotlight.
