regret will come – bubblegum guitar-pop
What you may need to know…
01. Regret Will Come is the bedroom-pop project of confirmed sad-boy Fintan Gallagher. “Discerning pop for the depressed millennial”, or so runs his tagline.
02. Lo-fi bubblegum pop is the order of the day here, in the vein that Ireland seems to produce at a prodigious rate in the past decade, albeit with a more pop-culture-tinged aesthetic.
03. Streaming above is the video for single Holy Cross Made of Flesh, directed by the team Sunburnt Soul Films and featuring a cameo from Ronald Reagan. It’s taken from Gallagher’s debut full-length, I Hope You Thrive.
Thoughts: Warm, fuzzy guitar pop, sans the warm and fuzzies. Anxiety, catharsis, and bittersweetness abide.
