Nothing is the second single from the San Diego-based foursome, Champ. Champ’s forthcoming self-titled album is due out today on Fleeting Youth Records.
Nothing begins with a down-tuned guitar bubbling around shards of spacey effects and light hi-hats before it explodes into a charged-up punk swell. The quick, aggressive drumming sets the pace while reverberated keys croon an eerie backdrop before lead singer Joel Williams begins to sing about being satisfied with hopelessness. For a two plus minute song, Champ packs a lot of shape-shifting sounds, guitars and moods that sets this emerging band apart from the herd.
