It seems like our hope for humanity in the past two years has plunged to the gutter that some of us have reached a point where moving to Chacachacare (desert island, not as fun as it sounds) looks appealing. London/Essex-based quartet Hey Gigantic restores our hope (at least by 50%) with their new single “Fools” where they remind us to practice realistic optimism and patience amidst the hot mess we now live daily. It’s not a wooey, starry-eyed piece, but one that reinvigorates you with smashing percussions and rock’n’roll punch that helps you vicariously release the stressful hopelessness off your shoulder.

“It’s about trying your best to see the positives in society and the world around us, when all we’re being fed is the negatives. Sometimes it’s a fight to retain that feeling of youthful optimism and patience with people as we grow older, but it’s essential we do and keep an open mind” shared vocalist/bassist Patrick Bateman. Just kidding, his real name is Jonathan Bateman.
Hey Gigantic are Bateman, Matt Nicholson (backing vocals/guitar), Jonny Haylock (guitar), and Jon Moon (backing vocals/drums). They’ve been making waves across BBC radio and playlists across the world. The quartet will be releasing more singles soon, so keep them under your radar.
