Birmingham’s alt-rock sensation, Five O Fives, is back with a bang, releasing their highly anticipated new single, “Short Changed,” on June 13th, 2024. This marks their first new music since their acclaimed debut EP in 2022, and fans are eagerly awaiting the fresh sounds from this dynamic quartet.

Formed in 2019, Five O Fives have quickly carved out a niche for themselves with their distinctive blend of punchy alt-rock and memorable guitar hooks. Their latest offering, “Short Changed,” is no exception. The track showcases the band’s knack for crafting catchy, anthemic tunes that resonate deeply with listeners.

“Short Changed” is an upbeat, yet emotionally charged song that delves into the frustrations of feeling undervalued in a relationship. The lyrics, penned by lead singer Alice Bloor, explore the painful experience of giving your all and still feeling like it’s not enough. Lines like “you said it wasn’t over” and “not enough love in me” poignantly capture the sense of being led on and the heartache of realizing that no matter how hard you try, it might never be sufficient.

The song’s compelling narrative is brought to life by the band’s stellar lineup: Alice Bloor’s powerful vocals, Andreas Mouzourides’ riveting lead guitar, Nico Pickard’s robust bass lines, and Joel Faulkner’s driving drum beats. The combination of their talents creates a rich, textured sound that’s both invigorating and emotionally resonant.

Recorded at Lower Lane Studios with the expert guidance of Jonny Price, and mixed and mastered by Sam Bloor, “Short Changed” benefits from top-notch production that highlights the band’s strengths. The track’s artwork, designed by Beatrice Robbins (@ho.bea), perfectly complements its themes, adding a visual layer to the band’s storytelling.

Five O Fives’ return is a significant moment for their fans and the alt-rock scene at large. With “Short Changed,” the band not only reaffirms their place in the industry but also sets the stage for what promises to be an exciting new chapter in their musical journey. The single will be available on all major streaming platforms, ensuring that listeners everywhere can experience the raw energy and heartfelt emotion of Five O Fives.

As the anticipation builds, one thing is clear: “Short Changed” is set to be another hit for Five O Fives, solidifying their reputation as one of Birmingham’s most compelling alt-rock acts.
