A solid rocker from B. Hamilton – who hail out of Oakland. This is one of two digital singles that the band are releasing in the wake of their fourth album ‘Nothing and Nowhere‘ which came out last year. ‘Good Foot‘ acts as a taster for their next, as yet untitled, album.
B. Hamilton’s frontman Ryan Christopher Parks says of the song, “I wrote ‘Good Foot’ during a time when change was brought up a lot. Whether people or situations could change, how quickly they should, and what should be the end result. I had a tough go for the previous five years. I wasn’t extraordinary or a victim, but it felt like there was an unavoidable blow torch of my loved one’s mortality fixed in front of my face. I wasn’t dealing with it correctly and I wasn’t sure where to start. It turns out that if you want a different outcome, then dig in and don’t be intimidated by the inches and seconds. Wake up, make your bed, and keep hacking away. Mind your own business and try to reflect when you can. The song is just a reminder of that to myself.”
Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
