New Green Day Single, “Oh Love”

Posted: July 23, 2012 in Uncategorized

Recently, murmurs, whispers and rumors of a new Green Day project were confirmed by the band. Fans were in for a real treat (and despisers were in for a huge headache) when the trio from California announced that they were not releasing one new album but three, “cleverly” entitled “Uno!,” “Dos!,” and “Tres!”

“Uno!’s” first single, “Oh Love,” lives up to the “power-punk” description Green Day gave the first piece of the trilogy, which is due out on September 25, 2012. The track rocks steadily with a punky riff that somewhat resmebles a slower “Rock’n Me” by the Steve Miller Band. The catchy chorus, guitar solo that replicates the melody, and relentless build up is reasonably successful, though “Oh Love” isn’t exactly the most memorable rock or even Green Day song ever released. It does, nonetheless, give hope for a simple rock record that doesn’t try to save the universe as the band’s previous records did.
