REVIEW: Born Ruffians – "Hummingbird"


Pure light-hearted catchy indie-rock fun. It’s the kinda track you forget exists sometimes.

It bursts out with ascending guitar riffs that pave the way for the "Oh oh oh"’s throughout the song. Simplistic drumming keeps you tapping along, with captivating rhythms and melodies flying throughout the whole song, never relenting or letting up for a moment.

Bass lines fill the void in some verses, but it’s really the hooks in the vocal parts and the guitar riffs that drag you in. The layered shouting from various members brings the song to a close, but leaves you wanting more and more. This song is so catchy it’s unbearable. Clocking in at 3 minutes and 8 seconds, it’s short, jumpy, and fun. And it’s great.

Score: 10/10
