‘By My Side’ by Great Good Fine Ok Is My New Commute Song

Band: Great Good Fine Ok
For Fans of: Penguin Prison, Capital Cities, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

I find falsetto extremely pleasing to the ear. I’m not positive why, perhaps because I can’t hit high notes myself?

One thing I am positive about, however, is that I also love men in robes, and the lead singer of Great Good Fine Ok, Jon Sandler, sports many robe-like outfits in various ornate varieties. The other half of the band is Luke Moellman, who provides the bouncy production and apparently enjoys, “really good, snobby, Brooklyn artisanal fried chicken.” Don’t we all.

It’s not a shock that I like this Brooklyn-based band, since their EP Body Diamond was released by my former cohorts over at Neon Gold and they are going on tour with the fantastic Betty Who.

Get the EP

My favorite song they have out is By My Side, a melodic albeit a little repetitive song, but the repetition and catchy hook is what gives it, it’s unique lullaby/dance feel. I particularly relish the hypnotic quality when I’m walking on crowded streets or on my stressful subway commute home. Listen below:

When asked what one can expect on the Betty Who tour, Jon said to Mostly Junkfood“A lot of enthusiasm, passion, dancing, kimonos and keytar solos.” Did you hear that everyone? Kimonos and keytars! Nothing better!
