First Listen: Joe Symes and the Loving Kind – Things Get Better
After making it on our 25 Best Indie Albums of 2015, Joe Symes and the Loving Kind are back with their new single “Things Get Better”. This insta-classic has the dirt of The Beatles’ Revolver and the pristine of an untouched masterpiece with a hook that lasts two minutes fifty-eight seconds. Time will only prove me right as it does with most classic hits as it is yet another testament the the songwriting power of Joe and the gang and the tightness that is a family of powerful and dedicated musicians!
