Tonight Alive - The Other Side Cover

This is the record that proves Tonight Alive are a world class act...

By all rights, ‘The Other Side’ should make Tonight Alive inescapable. Immeasurably more convincing than its predecessor, the Sydney band’s leaner, sharper second album confirms them as a truly world class outfit, with Jenna McDougall a bona fide star. While the Paramore comparisons remain valid, TA have certainly found their feet as songwriters here; ‘Lonely Girl’ and ‘The Ocean’ are anthems in the making, while ‘The Fire’ ushers in a glorious sugar rush of melody. This is polished, assured pop-rock custom built for massive stages and even bigger singalongs, and both are no doubt in the pipeline. Sophomore slump? Anything but.
