There’s a heck of a lot to like about ‘Hard To Be Alone’, the street-smart new single from Wollongong outfit Good Lekker.
Sliding into your playlist at a smidge under three minutes, the driving indie dance number lyrically deals with a dark moment in the life of co-frontman Josh Fahy.
“We wrote the track in early 2020 up on the Central Coast in a jam session and the lyrics represent the turmoil I was dealing with at the time,” he explains.
“I wanted the lyrics to take aim at a caricature of myself, mainly to vent on some built up frustration I had about my actions.
“I have the tendency to be unnecessarily argumentative, and I wanted to portray the ridiculousness of that through this caricature.”
Thankfully, out of something dark has come a bright, shimmering local radio-ready favourite.
The boys launched ‘Hard To Be Alone’ in their hometown on Friday night, but they’ll be doing the same in Sydney and Newcastle in the weeks ahead.
Here’s where to catch them doing their thing;
March 05 : Sydney (Lansdowne Hotel)
March 12 : Newcastle (Lass O’Gowrie Hotel)
