Reluctant Zero is a determined alternative/punk rock band I discovered a month ago with their new single, Hurt No More, released on March 19, 2021. The band has started their careers with a long-play album called, Brace in 2018. Since then, Reluctant Zero released one more EP, Listen to Me (2019), and one single, Hurt No More (2021). Now, please give the album a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Hurt No More is a fantastic sounding easy listening song with world-class production. The song, in general, has reminded me of a successful blend of everything we liked from the alternative rock scene, especially from the 90s, which is the definition of the musical character of Reluctant Zero at the same time. When it comes to their musical genre, they have influences from classic rock, hard rock, alternative, and punk rock elements here in this song. We all love and often listen to music like this on radios.
Reluctant Zero is actively making music for more than three years now, and you can immediately sense that they are experienced in what they do. First of all, Hurt No More is a very professionally arranged and recorded song. The band has decided to keep everything as simple as possible, focusing more on the overall feeling of the song, which is understandable. They show potential with their radio-friendly build, catchy melodies, and live performing potential. On the other hand, the band looks fantastic on the video. They reminded me of Guns’n Roses with their image and attitude in general.
