No Hope Left

Hope Of The States

So, Hope Of The States are another band to add to the list of disbanded-ness. I followed this band early on, intrigued by their brand of ambitious post-indie-rock and anxious to grab every music snippet I could find on the web and rummaging through NME every week (I was that sad, I know) for news on the album. When the album, The Lost Riots came, I had already heard many of the songs but still loved it all the same, especially when coupled with the deluxe string bound liner ‘medical’ notes (yup, still that sad). I was never a huge gig-goer at the time, and so missed on their apparently great live show. Of course, when years went by the fancy CD packaging didn’t fit with the rest of my collection, and all opinion on the band kinda got lost in the ether…

When Sing It Out was released earlier this year, I was completely flummoxed, this didn’t seem to be the same band I had loved a few years ago. And when album Left came out to a number of discerningly average reviews, I was even more inclined to ignore them in lieu of all the other bands I had been discovering in the meantime. This announcement is a disappointment by either way, because their debut was a stormer.

This song is a B-side off The Red, The White, The Black, The Blue single, which came together with the album. Hope you enjoy it…
